NaBloPoMo 2014 – Entry 14 – Accounting

Today I didn’t do much, so the biggest thing I have to report is…

Accounting. As in “balancing the checkbook” accounting. I keep my info in a spreadsheet based on a downloadable file I get from my bank, and I use it to figure out how much I spend on what.

Contrary to what most might believe for a gamer, gaming is not where most (or even a large percentage) of my money goes. It actually goes primarily for food. That’s because of the job. Carrying lunch is a pain in the ass, so I end up buying lunch. And a snack at break time, and often a breakfast. Gasoline and car are the next most intensive, also related largely to work. Then there’s entertainment, which includes not only gaming, but also DVDs and other media.

I spent the evening re-watching the first couple of episodes of Constantine. Pretty good stuff, but I’m amazed that it’s on network TV. Some of the themes seem pretty dark and unChristian for network, but who knows. I suppose if it gets ratings, it’ll continue.

Anyway, it’s late, and while I have nowhere to be in the morning, I think it’s about bedtime. Later.

  1. Wow! You actually ‘keep your books’. I’ve tried to keep an ‘accounting’ of where all my money goes to (mostly food) but I’ve always given up – budgeting and all those spreed-sheet thingies are just not my forte. 🙂
