21 Day Blog: Financial Fast Freeloader Edition

  Today started and ended with some of my weak spots. I planned ahead but I'm not sure if I can say I succeeded because instead of fasting, I freeloaded! Let me explain. I started my morning off with a meeting at a local coffee shop I frequent. I made my coffee at home and I also brought some home-juiced carrot and ginger juice to drink with my meeting. When I arrived at the shop my source was already there so I sat down with her and my regular barista asked if I wanted some water and I accepted. A few minutes later she brought me a delicious coffee beverage "on the house." 

She knew about the fast.

First off, thanks barista-friend! I delighted in that hand-crafted-with-love coffee. It was delicious. But I felt a little guilty because I knew it was against the spirit of the fast. Later, in a caffeine-induced craze (I also packed a thermos of coffee for work) I thought about Michelle Singletary's emphasis of the day- that fasting allowed us to bless others long term. In the short term other people blessed me.

After work I encountered my other weakness: happy hour meetings. I popped into a local pub to meet some friends to hash out a project we have been working on. Immediately my friend Chris tells me to put my order on his tab. 

"Did you know I'm on a spending freeze?" I questioned suspiciously. 

No, he was just being nice. I did explain to him what I was doing- then promptly ordered a beer.

On the other hand, I did eat cheese and crackers for lunch.

Last month the website PolicyMic posted an article entitled "If you Can't Stand Hipsters, These 11 Cities Are For You." Ostensibly this is a mashup of data about toughness from crime rates to professional athletes and blue collar workers- and Pensacola ranked #1.
