The financial struggles never end. I knew that this year was going to be expensive but I didn’t know it was going to be this expensive. This is Worry Wart part 4. If you are a longtime reader, you know about my financial struggles worry wart rants. If you are not, you can check out part 1, 2, and 3.

But on to the actual subject of this post. My fourth year of pharmacy school. It’s like the final boss level of my finances. At the beginning of this semester, I found out that my financial aid did not cover my entire tuition and living expenses. I actually owed the school.

Luckily, I saved some of my summer financial aid. I was actually saving for the ASHP (American Society of Health-System Pharmacists) Midyear conference. But you know how life goes. When it rains, it pours.

After I paid the remaining money, I had to figure out how I would live and survive for the rest of this semester. Because I was expecting to receive financial aid for the semester. I have money to live this month. But starting next month, things may be a little rough.

I’m still figuring things out. I’m not as broke as I thought I would be because God is sending random money my way and for that I am grateful. I just hope that the random money can continue to be sent my way this semester and next semester too. Because it looks like the same thing is about to happen and this time, I won’t happen my savings to bounce back.

Next month is going to be my most expensive month and I don’t know how I am going to survive. But I’m going to survive somehow.

I have been going through a lot of thoughts trying to find a good way to make some extra bucks. I even almost joined a multi-leveled marketing thing. I know I’m not much of a salesperson. But maybe the urgency the situation would make me become one.

I had a brief phone interview with what could have been my dream job only to find out that it was kind of far (I was still contemplating working there regardless although the cost would negate my pay), and that they only opened on the 8-5PM weekdays (I’m on my rotation M-F). 

I’ve been thinking of ways to monetize anything in my life. I could probably sell my clothes on Instagram under the name @shikastuitionmoney. I could even buy wholesale and resale. I feel like I’m handling too many Instagram accounts already. Two accounts are already enough. I’m not even a social media person.

 I could go back to surveys. But surveys take so much of your time for pennies. I could look for writing jobs. But most of these freelance jobs don’t get jobs that easily unless you have a large client base already. I’m tired of waiting passively for someone to hire me to write. But that’s life.

I’m going to update my Fiverr, Upwork account, and make some other account. If anyone has suggestions for some extra side hustles I can do while basically working full-time hours elsewhere, let me know in the comments. Please and thank you.

But, yeah. Just thought I’d let everyone know where I’m at right now. If you pity me, support me on my Patreon. Trying to get out of Worry Wart soon.

Thanks for reading my rant,
