hole in my pocket
i've discovered that my spending of money has increased, which is very very bad because my income has stayed flat. naturally, like any fiscally sound person would do, i set out to find the problem. most things in my life have remained constant and are no different than last year. i've have bought a few plain tickets recently, but the main problem is concerts. i have gone to six concerts already this year, which might not seem like a lot, but the costs add up. assuming the average cost is $50/ticket, i'm in a big $300 hole. there always seems to be drinking involved during and after too, which doesn't help the situation. plus, i buy most of the tickets, so i've already paid the credit card bills, but haven't been reimbursed.
that said, starting tomorrow, i'm going to 3 concerts in 8 days. springsteen at shea tomorrow night, then radiohead next thursday and friday (i know, foolishness). i'm also going to see the white stripes in november, but those tickets are cheap - $76 including fees, which is less than on springsteen ticket without surcharges.
