Flights booked, going to the Netherlands this summer!
Visiting the lovely Ann (sunrayonsunday) for about 9 days! It will feature bikes, de Efteling, yummy food (including stroopwafels!), shopping, the Sims, sightseeing (obvs), TV show marathons, and much much more! I’m so excited.
I really want to get this DNA genetic testing kit called 23andMe. In fact, I am very, very anxious to do so because I know next to nothing about my genetic heritage and this would shine some light on it. In fact, I’m a little bit desperate to know about it because I am now an adult who will be facing adult things like illness and getting old and whatnot.
However, I am poor. And most of the money I’m currently making is going straight towards my Plane Ticket To Holland fund. The kit I’d be buying is $107 then $9 a month for the 11 months after you buy it. The ticket costs for this flight have been averaging around $1300-$1400 for a round trip. I have a couple options….
- Buy it now, work like 40 hours a week for the rest of the college program (5 more paychecks) in order to ensure that I make no less than $135 a week and that my goal of $1400 or so is met.
- Ask my parents to get it for me as an early birthday gift - though they might be skeptical and unwilling to pay (but my interest in and need of learning about my heritage and health might help convince them?)
- Wait until I save up enough money to actually comfortably get it. BUT I DO NOT WANT TO WAIT AT ALL. AT. ALL.
