Happy Friday! and Saturday!!

October 11th, 2008 at 11:25 am

For most people, Friday is payday. If that's the case for you "Congratulations", but that is not the case for me. I must bear through and survive the remaining six days with only what I have remaining. I am sure many of you are on the by-weekly pay schedule as well. I have never really been able to figure out why companies do the by-weekly payroll thing. My guess, and this is only a guess, is that perhaps they only have to do the work of tallying up hours and printing checks 50% less times than if they had to do it every week. There are 52 weeks in a year, therefore they now only have to do this tallying and payroll processing 26 weeks each year.

I love my paycheck when it comes, I wish I actually received one with the same amount on a weekly basis.

Sometimes I forget that my checks come every two weeks and in my mind it seems I make a lot of money, but let me assure you that is not the case here.

For those of you not thinking about money right now, where's the party at?

I am looking forward to this particular weekend. My nephew is celebrating his birthday. He will be 4 years old. He is so cute.

It's amazing to believe that four years ago he didn't exist, he wasn't part of my life. (It's really weird imagining how this were before someone was born.) It's hard to think backwards in this sense, because when someone asks you to do say a task, you can't really go backwards.

For example, anyone can name places they would love to visit for vacation.
For example, how many examples can you think of when I ask
"Name 5 places you would to vacation at?"

The same is not true, when I ask

"Name 5 places you would never go to for Vacation".

Getting off the subject; for many of each each day is a struggle. Financially and mentality. When facing hard times, there's no better advice than to stay positive. You would be amazed at how easy to remember that everyday life challenges are trivial in the sense of the importance of our lives.

My advice, enjoy the weekend. Have some fun. Do something you enjoy.

If want to find meaning in your life, make someone happy; than in turn will make you feel better and happier too.

I have always taken into account random acts of kindness. While at times the subject disappears, its always nice and amazing what a difference can make doing something really nice that someone else doesn't expect.

Believe me, you can definitely change the world with that thinking.

Party hard, party long, but be responsible and return to work next week.

    There are worse things than being paid bi-weekly - when I worked at North Carolina State, we got paid once a month. Blegh!
