Fun with credit

Checking the credit card balance:

Balance Information
Credit Line $500.00 Current Balance $499.33

When I was younger, and off in college, I didn't have a lot of money. A solicitor called and talked me into a credit card. I was young; I was stupid. There was a point when this credit card bill was somewhere over a thousand bucks. And despite a few fits and starts (and a very nasty stain that's going to take another year to get rid of, grr, but maybe it will mean less with a string of on time payments), I've made the first major step towards not being in debt to the credit card company. I am now within striking distance of having it paid off. Perhaps even in time for apartment hunting in Junish.

This is a happy moment for me, for what are probably obvious reason.

John 1:5
"And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not."

One of my absolute favourite bible verses. Hell, I've always liked the whole opening of John...

But then again, I'm a writer and a scholar. :)
