Introduction to a Life of Scaredy-walking
Good --Morning-- ( ?! ) 4HWW fanatics! I'm in the presence of many would be online business starters, and I gotta tell ya, I couldn't be scared more out of my wits. I'm your friendly neighborhood busboy that you would see at your down home restaurant/store that has a dark secret. No, I didn't put cumin and vinegar into your country steak and gravy; It's much worse than that. I've got a plan to start my own business.
Like a lot of you, i have figured out the goals and the cost of these said goals
In the 6th month are included:
Hiking with friends in Canada's? It's always hard to get in touch with these friends, but surely well worth it. Publishing my fiction for the first time? Scary, but a long time dream.
A full wardrobe shift (item for item)? A little more fretting, and expensive to boot. However, It's about time for a change of some of those clothes.
A deliciously Brand new, high mpg Prius Hybrid, fully decked? We have a winner. More than 33K, that gives me the chills...
PAYING OFF ALL ENCUMBERED STUDENT LOANS??? Um, should i have bought that fainting couch?
(Wait...In the 12 month slot, Does he have on there to pay for a 2 year tour of America as a volunteer in a Christian Acting Troupe in the 12th month slot Indeed: Scary ).
Though, unlike some of you, upon reviewing the prices of said items (in the 6th month category: TMI: 5352; TWklyI 1338; TDylyI 192; THrlyI 24), I, Mr. J-R Scaredypants, who does not normally make more than 8 dollars an hour, did in fact nearly crap myself.
But my resolve can only grow stronger, and in order to do that, it will be most necessary to take actions to pin point what i really want, in order to never lose sight of what's indeed most awesome. It will also make it far easier for this insatiable perspiration of my hands to cease. Here's hoping we can help each other on the way.
Steps for tomorrow:
Schedule a test drive for that prius
Look up 3 shirts, 1 pair of shoes, 1 hat, and 1 pair of pants that i want
identify 3 magazines that would be interested in my odd taste of speculitive fiction (and i don't even care if they pay me )
Discover where my friend spends his time in Canada
And find out those pesky fees for paying off a loan early. (Eat my soiled scaredy pants and suffer horrible death, Susie-Mai!)
