Gotta get ready

This morning before my dad went to work he told me to write down a list of things that I need for my dorm/apartment so he and my mom can help out. That is one massive shock for me. The only thing my parents help me out with is food and shelter, don't get me wrong, I am TRULY grateful for that. I know people who's parents just threw them out once they hit 18. Everything else, I have to get myself. But I guess after touring the college on Saturday, kinda made them see what's in store for me. I won't be working the moment I get there. I have to find a job and in this economy, who knows how long that is going to take. I don't plan on asking for much, just toilet paper, pots and pans that my mom doesn't supplies. Everything else I'll be getting at my new favorite store:

This store looks quite nice....nothing like the one we have.

Even though, I truly would love to shop here:

But that won't be happening. I think my pockets can handle Sam's Club but I must find someone with membership first. Haha...idk, I'm so cheap at the moment, I'm afraid that I might spend too much money at the dollar store.....yeah.

There's always Freecycle to check out again.

People can be shady on here though.....I've used this in the past. Can be hard to get a hold of people and I can't stand giving out my phone number and home address out to strangers. Especially if they never come to pick up the stuff I've offered. I do give a false name though, lol. But I'm not giving anything away this time so it might go smoother than it has in the past.

I don't know what I plan on doing yet but gotta make a move soon. Feels like I'm running out of time.
