Can you make it through the month or..

Will you be SPENT? This post is pretty serious. While I was watching the news on my laptop I heard a story about how there a thousands of homeless people in America and Millions without jobs. One of the women began to explain about this "game" that is free to play online called SPENT. (which you can try here) PLAY SPENT . What the game is, is a simulator into what life would be like living paycheck to paycheck like many Americans are doing today and having to make choices for your child, grocery shopping,health bills and many more everyday choices!

The game also give you many facts along the way of how many people are actually living today. The object of the game is to see if you can get through a month without becoming broke or missing your bills. I made it to the end of the month with $397 but I still needed an $800 root canal that I could not afford. Its decisions like theses that so many people actual have to make everyday that give you a real perspective into what life is like when you have to struggle. Please try the game and see if you can make it to the end of the month or will you become homeless with no money...

Let me know how you did! how much money did you have left over? How many days could you get through?

Urban Ministries of Durham is a place in North Carolina (where I was born) that helps provide food clothing and shelter to those who desperately need it! if you have time take time to visit the site and get a first hand look or point of view at what so many people in our nation face

Credit for the game SPENT goes to Urban Ministries of Durham and McKinney

Rihanna S&M

I need better habits

So I have been up since 12:00 in the afternoon yesterday!! I also have work at 11:00am today (dont ask me how I will make it through I have no idea! I have been laying in bed with my eyes closed for 5 hours and that is not working> I need to get myself into the habit of eating better exercise and sleeping at the same time every night!. I think that's going to be my new goal. I don't know how much longer I can take my crazy sleep patterns!

my goals
-stop drinking soda >_<
-sleep at the same time every night
-start getting in some exercise a few days a week
-lose about 45 pounds(not because I think I'm fat but I could use it)

hopfully I can successfully do all these things I wont give myself a time frame i feel that puts stress on top of it!

lets see if I can get in a small (very small) nap before I go to work at 11!
wish me luck lol
