I just got back from work and I am sitting down now to sort out some financials for the first time since graduation. I am very excited about sorting out financials because, lo, I actually have financials to sort. Namely, I’ve started bartending part-time at a nice little place right on Piedmont Park. I’ve worked three times and I usually end up coming home with tips in cash. Legally, I’m obligated to keep track of tips, so I’m recording those, as well as my working hours (haven’t gotten a clock-in number yet). I am slowly getting good at counting money quickly. I also had some random cash laying about in my deskular area, so I counted that up and it’s all gone into a big roll in [undisclosed location], ready to deposit. I have an extra special incentive to save up everything that I can–I might discuss that in a later post.
This is my financial process.
This is all very impressive until you look closer and realize that I have a few 20s, some 10s and 5s, and a monumental stack of 1s. But you know, it’ll work out. I am going in on Friday to fill out paperwork for my other job, and I assume training starts soon. Money…coming soon to a blogger near you!
