My current financial situation is just another reason, though, why I need a new job. When I got laid off at my last job, I thought I was overpaid, so I just hoped to get the same salary, which I thankfully got. But of course I find a job at a company that does not give out raises, or at least the ones they do give out are for between 2 and 4 percent and don't go into effect until 6 months after they are issued. The bottom line is, I'm making the same money I was making over 2 years ago, the next opportunity for me to make more money comes in October (I got issued a raise in April, but still don't know if it's 2 or 4 percent), and my rent alone has gone up 12% since then. I used to be so proud of myself for having a savings account. It's a damn good thing I started one, as I've been having to dip out of it more often than I'd like to.
So wah. No money for me.
