Partially moved in. Electricity will be on tomorrow (or hopefully tonight). Somehow, I have a bathroom light. I left it on. Somehow, someone else is paying for it ;). It was nice having atleast a little bit of light though. Will take pictures when everything is all set up. I'm so excited about having my OWN PLACE. Aaah! Going to be fabulous.

For the electricity, I had to pay $140 deposit (that I get back when I move out or after two years, whichever comes first), $16 non-refundable set-up fee, and GET THIS: $11.50 for using my debit card. I didn't exactly have a choice because my checks hadn't come in yet, but thank goodness I had already ordered them (I got them this afternoon, if you're wondering). Definitely will come in handy for paying rent and electricity. Cell is easily paid online. I shouldn't have any other bills.

I started my budget excel sheet but the money I should have is $100 off. Did I spend exactly $100 on something? I bet that my "available balance" only lets me use $100 until it goes through. That's how Tuttles or Rob's or someone's account used to be.

Last night the Hilfsteins and Alice came over. OLD SCHOOL! It was fun. Not Cranium-fun, but fun nonetheless. I'm not going to be a last minute sinner and start my diet on New Years, but I definitely need to stop eating cookies.

Chanukah booty catch-up:
third night - cash from Vivi, Publix gift card from my parents, gum from my parents
fourth night - check from Matthew, extra kitchen supplies from Sab, chanukah wishes from Aaron

still to open:
~Something that looks like another gift card, and more gum from 'rents.
~something that is almost undeniably an LED light for my keychain (everyone else who drives has gotten one, and my package looks the same)
~something that is almost undeniably a can opener, especially because I can see it where the wrapping is a little torn
~something that is definitely plaid pants that my mom bought for me
~friends presents (I only know of two, but hey, there could be more)

Oh, and today I got a fabulous Chanukah card from katiethewriter! Thanks so much, Katie :)
