I had to write a paper for my finance class. This is why I wrote that blog post earlier this week on how we organize our bills. I needed to link to that blog post so the people reading my paper could see pictures of what I was talking about.
At first I thought writing a long enough paper about my topic was going to be hard but it was really easy. It actually was way longer than it needed to be and I had to cut some parts out. I realized that by blogging for the past two years it has actually made writing lengthy things really easy and I wonder why I never started blogging (about things that made sense…I had a ranting livejournal/blog in high school) years ago.
I’m planning on writing a few more blog posts on budgeting topics and the rest of my paper while I’m at it.
Since the place I have to Over the summer I received a free copy of the book 101 Secrets for Your Twenties to review. I finally got the review written and posted it on Monday. You can read the review here. Even if you aren’t in your twenties there’s a lot of really good information in the book.
I also wrote a post about going to events as a singleton for the last NAS series post of the year. I thought I had some good tips and some funny ones as well.
Last weeks Five Minute Friday word was TREE. It was a crazy coincidence because the day before I used a TREE to talk about the Catholic Social Teachings with the Confirmation Students. Since I’ve done it a million times it was easy to write about it in 5 minutes. Go read about it here.
This is the time of year online shopping is awesome. Tons of coupon codes and free shipping codes come out. I’ve been trying to buy Bachelorette Party invitations for my sisters party and everything I had been finding were ugly or not very tasteful (to put things lightly). I got an email from KELLOGGS of all people with Shutterfly coupons for free shipping and $20 off. Thinking I wouldn’t find anything I went on the website and actually found the PERFECT invitation that says “lets paint the town” and we’re going to painting with a twist! After googling more coupons I only paid $7 for 20 invitations! It was actually more expensive to only buy 10 invitations…go figure.
A friend tweeted this post by Ann Voskamp. She talked about “Boring” men and how wedding proposals don’t need to be these elaborate events that go viral on youtube. The best marriages aren’t going to go “viral” but it doesn’t matter because everyone that needed to know knew of the love between the husband and wife in their lifetime.
