After paying for 4 out of 5 tickets for the Matrix IMAX last night,
I’ve decided it’s time for me to start being selfish when it comes
to my finances.

I feel I’m generally very generous when it comes to that.
If it means a good time will be had by all, gladly I’ll foot the bill.
Anytime I can, I usually do.

But I guess I’ve started to wish that was reciprocated.
I mean, everyone has their own financial binds and I understand that.
But there was one other person that should have been capable of paying
me back last night, and I’ll I got was a high 5. Perhaps she ASSUMED
I was paying for the evening?

I dunno.

This is something I started pondering after I had to pay for my own
birthday dinner. Which I didn’t mind, but wouldn’t you think if I
was being taken out for my birthday by friends, they’d cover my dinner?
That’s always been the unspoken rule at birthday dinners.

So yeah, time to start looking out for myself dammit.
I don’t like struggling with bills, and I don’t like that my goals
seem unattainable (Canon EOS Digital Rebel, Treo 300, etc)
