My mind was racing last night while trying to sleep. I remembered that I have a change jar that I can cash in. I just skimmed through it, taking out some of the quarters, and easily have $15 worth of quarters in there. I need to deposit that change and put it towards my debt. I also thought about all the pennies I’ve passed up on the ground. I should be picking up every spare cent I see. Yes, it may be a minuscule amount, but it’s better than nothing.
I was also trying to think of what I could offer for services on Fiverr. What kind of services would people actually pay $5 for? Do people actually pay $5 for some of the silly services offered? How likely would someone choose me over the plethora of other people already offering services on that site? I really can’t think of anything unique to offer. Write a haiku or some other poem? Proofread? That’s about as far as I got and I continued to rack my brain over it, trying to come up with anything else. I got nothing.
I entered a college affordability video contest to win $500. Word on the street is that there’s only five entries. I’m crossing my fingers (but not while I type) that I’ll win! I wasn’t able to clearly understand everything I said into the voice recorder on my phone. When I try to enunciate words I know I have problems saying clearly, I end up straining my jaw muscles and it makes me sound worse. I searched for a free text to speech application or program but didn’t find anything that didn’t sound too computerized. I opted to use text. I threw this together this morning. Not my best work. I wish I would have uploaded it to youtube before I submitted it, may have fixed it up a bit more. Oh well!
I often consider myself to be the unluckiest person I know. I never win anything. Raffles, lottery tickets, nada. I’m hoping my luck changes because I entered some other contests. Sallie Mae is offering one currently. I want to win! Come on luck!
