I aint got no money!

After checking my bank account today for the first time in a few months i realised how much shit i was in.


Overdraft is currently sitting at -£1600 , (yes negative). So unless i sell my ass for some money or come up with some way of making some quick cash before i start my job next monday then i literally cant do anything, cant afford to go to university, cant afford books, cant afford to go out at the weekends, nothing!

This scheme is working well (you know what im talking about) but i still havent recieved my verification letter which sucks.

Now i have tried dumpster diving also which seemes pikey on the face of it, but when times are hard, you gotta do what you gotta do. i found some RAM sticks from old PCs which i can maybe punt for about £20, not much, i also found an old lawnmower which i took the motor out of and its currently on gumtree waiting for a suitor.

For a while back in summer i was "fixing" computers by reinstalling windows so it all ran quicker for the customer but i had to stop doing that because the windows copy i had said not genuine.

I would be more interested in hearing about peoples experiences with financial hardship and what you did to overcome it. i may implement some of your measures for myself until i get my first paycheque.

Be sure to check out my other blog Live TV where i will be streaming popular tv shows from the UK. Last night i streamed The Apprentice UK to a small audience then The Inbetweeners for a couple of robots who wanted it. usually i stream about 1am ish GMT, for live TV shows and sports it will always be at the time of the actual event.

  3. Although Im not in debt, I kind of know how you feel. Blew all my money on the weekend and I now have to wait until tomorrow before I get paid (and can eat more than cheese on a bun for meals).

  7. I dunno how you can make money in less than a week unless you whore yourself out on the street or sell random things as you said in your post. I am poor as fuck but I am living off of student loans this year but the amount of money from the loans that I don't use accrue interest in a savings account and other investments. I have learned BUDGETING is key. I would probably continue dumpster diving for a week tbh, even if it is a tad but pikey :| It'll be alright in a little bit.

  18. Shit, that's major. Have you got a job? Out of interest how did you get into the "computer fixing" business OP? I've always wanted to, as I'm pretty good at dealing with the shit computers fire at you, but I never knew how to get my name out...
