It feels good taking charge of my finances for once. But it seems like everyday I must deal with how irresponsible I was in the past. I want to go back in time and chastise my former self. Like how did I let my utility bill get to be $450?! Who knows. But the point is, I finally called them and worked out a payment plan.
I payed $65 yesterday. And for the next eight billing cycles I will be an additional $30 to whatever I owe. Sounds good to me. Well no, it annoys me that I owe this much, but alas, it's time to pay the piper (or the utility company).
My landlord just mentioned to me that I should look into getting some CFC bulbs. I've read about them and heard they save a lot of money on energy costs and last for years. I'm definitely going to look into them.
