Today I woke up at 9.30am, I left the house only to renew my travel season card, the cost is feeling quite significant now, it’s over 10% of my wage, I need to take a more serious consideration of how much of my income is actually disposable. It’ll be easier to ascertain once I’ve actually been paid (at the end of the month I’ll be paid for my first 2 weeks).
I applied for an Amazon credit card, I get a free £10 gift voucher with it and when I spend around £1500, I’ll get another. Applying for credit cards just seems like something normal people with jobs do, I already have a credit card but this one is better since it has a rewards program. Might also apply for an American Express in a months time, applying for too much credit at once damages your credit score, as does owning 4+ credit cards. According to ClearScore, my credit score is 498/700, Expedian somehow rates it 978/999.
I watched a little bit of football and mainly just browsed my tablet for TV/Broadband deals for when the current contract expires. Getting subscription based TV deals seems like something else people with jobs do. Got my eye on a £37.50/month HD sports package (£70 setup fee) + 52MB broadband. Watching American sports could be comfy.
I couldn’t get tickets for City/Monaco so I’ll try for City/Huddersfield instead. Tickets go on sale Wednesday to the general public. Bit nervous about going to a game and it’ll likely
not be overly pleasant since it’ll be on at 8pm in the freezing cold.
First lot of gifts arrived, nightlight for my sister though she was still mean to me. My brothers “Quidditch through the Ages” also arrived, he didn’t want it, essentially gave it away to another sister. I’m sure he’ll appreciate the Charmander plush more
