    Ever have one of those months when you wish you were a rich person who didn’t have to worry about the price of gas going up ten cents? Yeah. Me too. Oh Colorado, I love you and I hate you. Why oh why does it cost six hundred and two dollars to register my car? Like jesus christ guys, come on. It’s been a long month. Sometimes I’m so afraid to look at what I’ve spent over the span of 7 days that I just don’t. I put off doing my weekly budget until the next week starts and I know I’m starting fresh.
