I've been reluctant to do the math, but this morning in the shower (and again this afternoon in the shower, because I can't add when I'm so sleepy), I finally tallied up my income for the year 2003. What a depressing--yet revealing--moment.
I have taken home less than $9000 this year. With my next three paychecks, it will add up to something like $8700. No wonder we're having financial problems. I took home more than that in four months at my old job. What kind of idiot walks away from that kind of paycheck? This kind of idiot, I guess. I.am.a.moron.
