Welfare challenge and gofundme

Yo

It has been 3 days since I joined the $21 a day welfare challenge and couldn't keep my spending down..
I also cannot afford food but I spend more than welfare could offer.

It is still why I am struggling with funds for my just my tuition.

If anyone can help me out?
Go to Kathleen's gofundme

Peace

Welfare Challenge

Today I am going to follow the $21 food budget set out by Welfare per person.

Check out the website Welfare Food Challenge

People who need help really do not get help. We have a problem in B.C and all of Canada. We should be helping out the people in our backyard rather than sending charity to seriously corrupt governments overseas.

Stop fueling war, fuel your people.

To start, last Sunday I bought a weeK's worth of food for myself and my DH worth $40 and I already prepared all my lunches for the week.

I'm not sure I'll be able to cut out coffee because I get coffee withdrawals and nasty migraines when I don't get coffee. I work at Starbucks, I am always highly overdosed on coffee. Since I am going to school everyday and work every weekend, I cannot try to cut it out yet. Weaning off is possible. I still have 10lbs of coffee beans from last year. I can try to use it up when I need to.
Sugar, which I don't usually add to my coffee but eat too much off, I will try to cut out.
I also generally eat 2 meals a day. But I have a secret stash of oatmeal if I get really hungry. I have tried to follow, but not exact, the power fast diet from darebee.com.
I will mark out what I eat and generally how much it costs.


Morning: Large Coffee ($2.20), waffle
Snack: Three Hashbrowns ($2.00)
Lunch: 2 egg omelette (no milk) with pizza sauce, pepperoni, and mozzarella cheese
Snack: Chestnut Praline Latte and Mini Snowman doughnut ($7.10)
Dinner: Apple and Oatmeal


Definitely went over my daily budget for sure. But I still have some left over for the week. 

$21 - $11.30 = $9.7 for the rest of the week and it's only the first day

Study for midtern

I am supposed to be studying for my midterm thats tomorrow but instead I am trying to finish Once upon a time on Netflix. I can't stop myself. It's so addictive and I can't wait until the next season is on Netflix.
I am probably going to have a super hard time getting off of Netflix again because Hemlock Grove just updated the latest season. I freacking love that show.

Sigh

Busy day

Today was definitely a busy day. I started my day a little bit late, the bus passed me saying it was full again (same thing happened yesterday). And by full translink means there is still standing for six - eight people. I would stand to get a ride 4 mins down the road. Seriously translink. The bus from my apartment is only comes every 15 - 30 minutes. So... Yeah you can really miss the bus. I walked to the station. I should have walked to the station anyways. Or at least woken up earlier.

So I arrived in Psychology Class late. I love psychology. That stuff is the bomb. Currently learning about cognitive and physical development of children. We are in the 'attachment' section of our book.
I also have a virtual baby. His name is Lan. Currently he is 8 months old :)
And I found that my baby is has a secure attachment to me.

The rest of school went well. I feel like I am actually learning stuff. My only issue is that I have already become disorganized and feel like I am about to fall behind in my studies and assignments. I can't afford to redo a class. I can barely afford my tuition this term. Faaak.

Well getting late, peace 🙋

What my day is like

Today was a busy day.
I almost woke up late for my mid-term this morning.
Luckily I made it on time and the teacher was late.

My classes class schedule is
Monday 8:30 - 3:50
Tuesday 9:00 - 5:20
Wednesday 8:30 - 3:50
Thursday 8:30 - 5:20
Friday 8:30 - 12

On Thursday and Friday we have practicum so Thursday is a really long day.

Sadly, I study until 10 pm everyday and still cannot get everything done.
I also work on Saturday and Sunday but its still not enough to cover the costs of study.

Sigh

Wow. Hello World!

As you can see... I am not really that good at keeping up with my blogs.
Again, I am going to try and promise to but I doubt that will happen.
Let's keep it up.

Yup, I still cook - less Korean food, but I crave it. I still cook rice for my DH. Lovely rice cooker keeps it warm for 5 days. Ah~
I still crochet. Though, not so much anymore too busy.
I hand sew (past tense) as a costumer's assistant for the BCRF.

On another note!
I have moved back to Canada as of March 2013 to Beautiful Vancouver. I have been living here for 2-ish years,
I have worked for Starbucks for 2 years now. Which I absolutely love to work at! I used to work full time but now I am only working on the Weekends.
Hey if you have any questions about Starbucks drinks and food items in B.C I can help you out.
I like to make "secret menu" style drinks.

I started volunteering for a private school because I wanted to apply for Early Childhood Education. I applied at Douglas College, but they didn't accept me.
I may go into details later.
Instead, my friend got my into Langara College. I had applied early for the January intake the moment I found out that Douglas College didn't want me. (Three years teaching in Korea to Kindy/Pre-k doesn't really cut it I guess). I started finishing all the paperwork and basically handed it in the next day. They were interested. My greatest friend put in a good work for me to the Head of the department and I got an interview a couple weeks later. I also felt it odd that the registrar accepted my with an English mark of 78% (1% less than minimum 80%). The head said that she accepted me and was glad to have me in the intake for September! OMG, Apply for January 2016 intake and got accepted to the September 2015 intake!
I was super happy about this. For sure.
But back to the English mark, a couple days later I was informed after I have my January application cancelled and my September intake accepted, that I was not able to register for classes (which already had the registration pass). So, unfortunately, I had to take the LET and get at least a 3 of 5. Got a three. Yay

So TL;DR, I got into college.

Peace, I have two mid-terms I need to study for.
