💛 I will ask the parish worker to write me a voucher for getting a swimming hall membership card for one year at the local community- owned fitness center. Of course, the actual card costs about five euros, and I also need a passport photo for it. I have a passport photo, and I can ask my mother for a fiver, it won't be too hard. But the year- long membership for discount groups like pensioners and students costs more and that's why I need the voucher.
If I won't receive it, my mother will probably be able to pay for it; she thinks I should get more exercise, and I agree with her.
I might also ask for another voucher, so I can get 25 paid visits to the gym which is in the same center as the swimming hall.
💙 When I went to the social office yesterday, I was told that I might be qualified for monthly income support, because according to the social worker my current income is very small. I should hope so, extra money is always good.
💜 The one thing that helps me save money is that I have an extremely low appetite. Weirdly enough, I don't feel hunger or have any kind of cravings. I still feel physically healthy, and mentally healthy enough.
💚 I have finished knitting the fourth stripe into my scarf, I have already chosen another ball of yarn from Citymarket.
🔵 I have already planned this month financial situation:
on March 15th I will reload my travel card from April 2nd to April 15th, and use the rest of the money to stock up on personal hygiene products from BodyShop and eco- markets like Ekolo and Ruohonjuuri; I need toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, hand wash, hair conditioner, mouthwash, soap bars, I think that was all.
On March 16th I will buy gifts for a friend who has her birthday party that week.
If I won't receive help from the parish, I will buy the swim hall card and the gym card on March 22nd. If I receive help, I will use this month's welfare for stocking up on the domestic hygiene products.
On March 23rd I will go to the hairdresser's.
🔶 I had planned to go visit my grandmother this month, but I have a friend's birthday party, meditation lessons, and the hairdresser's appointment to attend to. Perhaps I will go see her in April.
🔷 Easter is coming, next time I receive money I am going to buy Easter cards and also some stickers to go with it. I have already decided to send an Easter card to every single friend whose address I have. To them I will send a cute and sweet one, and to my grandmother I will send one with a religious theme, like one with Jesus on a field with lambs, or an angel holding a basket full of daffodils.
🔸 I should take two bills to the social office, return a book or two to the library, and take an empty tube of facial cleaner to the nearest BodyShop for recycling.
