Wow. My life has just been saved thanks to the wonderful website prosper.com. It's person to person lending and people can loan you money and when your loan has been 100% funded, then they get the interest back on whatever they decided to loan you. AND you can choose what interest rate you want to pay the loan back at and the lenders can bid it DOWN. AWESOME.
My loan is for 6000 dollars at 17% interest. Which is high, but I'm hoping it'll go down. I still have my listing up for one more week. But either way, I KNOW that I have the money now and I don't have to worry about wether or not a bank will approve me. AND it builds up my credit!!! I LOVE IT!!!
So that takes care of TWO things on my list.......the loan and the laptop!!! OH, I am SO happy!!! And tomorrow, Ron and I will be purchasing our tickets to Christchurch, New Zealand. How exciting. =) It looks like we will be heading there on June 30th. It's a Monday. The only thing that sucks is the prices on the tickets that I'm looking at are up by 100 bux. SUCKAGE!!! Oh well, at least I know I have money now to make up for it!!!
I also purchased a new Jansport suitcase that is super cute. That should arrive this next week. It's so great to get the ball rolling......FINALLY!!! I never thought it would happen. Very cool.
