Money & Work
I still haven't been paid for my curriculum work that I did in the summer which meant I had to switch around some money in our accounts to cover our bills for the month. Eeeeek, it's been tight!
Coming home to a big pile of bills was NOT FUN!
And my brother took a leave of absence from his job as a tax auditor so that he can focus on getting his accreditation. He'll be a full-time student right along with me.
He's funding his school through the bank of Jen.
Sung Hyun's family deals with money a whole another way than mine does. Which explains why he laughed at this piece of paper. My brother made me sign a contract stating the terms of this loan along with interest payments. I told him I'd be happy to lend the money interest-free, but he insisted on making this an official transaction complete with interest. According to my brother, you should never be without a contract, even if you're borrowing money from family or friends. He's probably right but it just seemed a little funny to me.
I think Judge Judy would agree with my brother though!
And......the good news is......
Sung Hyun got a job!!!! YAHHH!
He starts on Monday ;)
