Job vs Friends

Spent much of yesterday lounging around and sleeping. Recovering from the night before. Then as usual i couldn't sleep when i went to bed on Sunday night and stayed up till about 2am pissing about on the computer.
So by morning I'm knackered again and late for work.

Because i have been working nights i haven't been to the gym at all but i bumped into Chris at lunchtime and he asked how i was and why i wasn't going anymore. He mentioned that he had seen Daniel a few times who seems to be keeping it up and suggested that he is not happy because i hardly see him anymore. I knew this would happen. I spend weekends with Jack and work all the time during the week.
Something has to give and it seems it is him at the moment. Thinking about it i haven't been round to my mums for a while and i can't remember the last time we spoke on the phone. I seriously considered stopping my night job, but i got paid today and it was very nice thank you. Perhaps I'll just do it for a couple of weeks more, fill my boots and then call it a day.

I am now an online banker. How cool is that ? I never did it before and can't understand why i haven't. No, come to think of it i do. I don't trust the security side of things.
But as i hardly have millions of pounds worth nicking, hopefully it won't be too bad.
I have even set up a savings account and have a transfer of £25.00 that goes in every month. It's not a fortune (but all i can afford) and i'm gonna keep it as a savings for a rainy day. This is a miracle for me, i'm the sort of person who gets his wage, takes out what he needs for bills and food, then blows the rest.
I feel quite good about it actually. I wonder how long it will last ?.

i heard someone said, "sometimes you have to give up the things that you want right now for the things that you've wanted all your life." it is hard to maintain a social life when your schedule is different than your friends. if financial independence is your goal, then a little sacrifice in your social life is not that bad. just make sure that the people you love and the people you call your friends understand this.
