That's not what the Death card means

Mikey tells me that the fictitious "Heslin Diet" described below is in substance identical to an actual, commerically available diet. As a result, please note my disclaimer that the below diet is not intended in any way as an attempt at the commercialization of or advocacy in favor of starving yourself for a significant portion of your day. It was some funny babbling I was doing while I was experiencing noticeable blood loss. (Well, funny to me at the time. Think about that.)

Mikey also says the diet doesn't work. I guess if you wait all day to eat something, you make sure it's something that's really really bad for dieting in general. So don't do it. I was only coincidentally following that eating schedule last week - I don't eat breakfast 95% of the time, and I'm working through the day so skipping lunch is easy enough.

Plus, I think I'm going to be poor for a while. The fees that USBank ran up on me combined with the costs I had to put on my credit card are preventing me from just paying off the credit card. (My plan was to put things on the credit card until I got my loan money, then pay off the credit card in total. If I did that now, I'd be broke again before the end of the semester.)

So, I'll be paying off my credit month by month and budgeting the heck out of myself. I'm also sticking with USBank after hearing from a friend who had a very bad experience with them. I don't need to provoke them into any kind of retribution. I wouldn't be concerned with retribution if USBank hadn't already demonstrated a complete disregard for a normal business-customer care relationship. This'll be the last time I complain about it, since at this point I'm signing up for the nightmare - removing my right to outrage. I know it's a bad deal, so I've got no right to expect sympathy for being in a bad deal.

And I still don't know what I'm doing this summer. There's a few classes I can take, and work at the Clinic is good work experience. Since I'm paying for the apartment regardless, it makes a certain amount of sense. But I really don't like the idea of spending the whole year in Ohio. Heh.
