In deep trouble.

I am in deep trouble. Well, not that "criminal" type of trouble, but more of a problem thing. See, I've been given this grant for my studies, which is a significant amount of money. Of course I intended to put it to good use, which includes the materials I need. I've bought a lot of those, and at a good quantity so that I could use it for further studies. The good thing is that, as I bought those, I noticed that I didn't need so much. So I decided to buy some that I want, this time. Weeks passed, and then I noticed that the significant amount reduced to as low as 20% of the total grant! And I am not even finished with my studies yet! :( And now I really can't sleep with all these thoughts in my head. There's nothing to ask, really. Like, "what am I supposed to do??" or "where did I go wrong??", because the answers to these questions are quite obvious. I'm left with only one option, to spend the lowest possible that I could, and save up enough money for future use. This time, I'll be smart.

At least you now see where you made mistakes and are willing to correct them for the future. Some people do not learn until they hit rock bottom. This is a grant which means you don't have to pay it back which is much better than had it been a loan. I would just use this opportunity to learn and remind yourslef not to make the same mistakes in how to spend money and move on. All the best to you!!

It's been a while, and this reply's definitely way too late. But hey, it's never too late to say thanks for listening! I'm almost done with my thesis now, just preparing for the final drafts of the manuscript and my thesis defense. I can almost smell my Masters' diploma coming to my hands! My goal is here!
