TFA Institute Week Two finances so far.

So far this week I've spent a mere 75 cents. Unfortunately, that's only because the insane hours call for spending on caffeinated beverages and nothing else. I managed to be an almost effective teacher on five hours of sleep a night so it was clearly time to try it on two and a half. What do you do when you're giving absolutely everything you have to give right now and it isn't enough? I'm hoping tomorrow will be a little better and then I'll have a weekend to get caught up and regroup.

Yeah, that's what teaching is like. Caffeine, not enough sleep, not spending money because you haven't been anywhere but school and home. That means I am able to put a good percentage of my salary into savings and investment, actually...and summer is when I can make up for all the weekends spent grading papers and catching up on sleep instead of going out. So I don't regret it!
(I never teach summer school, though sometimes I do work summers. I only take fun summer jobs, though!)
