What I spent and earned: October 10th – Test (results) anxiety…

My MCAT scores and Casper quartile will be released on October 11th…so tomorrow, ugh.

Variable Expenses Budget: $500.00
Spent Today: $45.68 – Yay!
Variable Budget Remaining: $205.81

October Income Goal: $2,500.00
Earned Today: $0.00*
Earned To Date: $605.19*
Goal Remaining: ($1,894.81)

I am headed on a walk with a really good friend today and it will temporarily pause my oscillation between hope and tepid despair.

A bit of spending today but it wasn’t frivolous. I will have more tomorrow. Likely far too much as I try to work through how I’m feeling about my test results.

*Income is reported as cash on hand. Some gigs are 1099 gigs (taxes not withheld) and some gigs are W-2 gigs (taxes withheld) and it would be tough to distinguish between the two in a neat way. Instead, I will report cash in hand, and money set aside for taxes and expenses related to gig work will have a budget line item each month.
