What's $1 Worth To You? - My Life, I GuessIt was one of those cold, rainy days where winter couldn’t decide if it was coming or going. The freezing rain felt like it could turn to snow any minute, and the ground was one giant slush puddle.

Despite the weather and my lack of owning proper winter boots, R and I were out running a few errands.

While we were out, we decided at the last minute to pick up a few groceries from the discount grocery store in the strip-mall. We were already there, and this way we could hibernate for the rest of the miserable (weather-wise) weekend.

Inside the grocery store, the mood was no better. We were cold, and wet, and it seemed like everyone around us was just as grumpy as we were. The glaring florescent lights and bright yellow colour scheme within the store only made things worse. We were not having a good time.

Because we weren’t originally planning to go to the grocery store, I had parked farther away than I normally would have.

Even with bad credit, you do have options when you need funds for an emergency or major expense. Although most of the interest rates and fees will be higher due to your credit status, you can still obtain a loan. It is also a way for you to become responsible with making payments so that you can begin rebuilding your credit. Some alternative loan agencies do report to credit bureaus.

Online Personal Loan

When seeking out an online personal loan, it is important to make sure that the lender is legally able to lend to you in your state. Some states do prohibit the use of online lending options. You will be required to either fax or email documents in for verification purposes. In most cases, you will receive an answer within 48 hours and have the funds within 24 hours from approval. Many online lenders specialize in bad credit loans for people that need it.

Private Party Loan

Borrowing from a private party can be risky as it can ruin friendships and family relationships.

Pretending to be Positive - My Life, I GuessThere’s a common belief that there’s power in positive thinking. That having a positive attitude brings happiness and success.

I’m a pretty negative person. I wish I weren’t, but I am.

I’ve been conscious of this fact for many, many years and have made attempts in the past to be more of an optimist. But then life would throw me a curveball (sometimes it’d be something big, oftentimes it’d be something small) and I’d be right back to my old pessimistic ways.

With my struggles to find a good job, and having to settle for less than I’m capable of at a fraction of the pay I used to make, I don’t think anyone would be surprised to learn that these last 2 years have left me feeling particularly negative – especially when it comes to my career, my finances, and my self-worth.

I’ve been extremely lucky to have R, my fiancé, on my side through all of this. He’s been the more positive one in our relationship.
