It doesn't buy me a job, and other than inject cash into retail (perhaps via some freed up credit cards) I don't really see how it would work (from an economically illiterate point of view).

I'm spending mine on getting my car serviced, registration, and insurance; and a prostitute.

I got $1000 last November from the first package and $950 from this one. I'm going on a teaching practicuum (most likely to Tamworth) for uni later in the year, so that will cover the accommodation, transport etc. I also need to pay car registration and insurance. Hopefully, I'll have some left over for a possible U2 tour next year too.

I'm still dubious I'll even get the money, but admittedly it does seem like I fit in the box this time.

I'll be spending the money on deep-level research to allow me to post even more and sharper threads here at Lemonade stand.



















Guys.


No, I'll save it, probably. In fact, definitely.

1. Drink carton of Heineken prior.

I know someone who did this, except it was at Sky City. If you do it, some kind of a wonderful circle will be complete.

Actually, I don't know what people do in Melbourne.

Sounds like a good time! Don't know how I'll go drinking a carton of Heineken though...

I've heard about Sky City, good place?

No bills for me yet! I'm just annoying centrelink trying to figure out how many things I can apply for to boost my bank account.
