I'm not going to make excuses for the savings account, except to say that I moved last week and there were all kinds of deposits and things due, since this is the first real place that I've lived in that wasn't equivalent to a dorm. room or my parent's house. I will also say that I purposely transferred too much to my checking account to make sure I had enough to cover everything, and surely some of it, but not all, will get transferred back at the end of the month.
By the way, a cool part about the story -- I got upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment for free (for the entire year!!!!) since they forgot to have a 1 bedroom apartment ready for me when I came over. Pretty awesome, I must say; now I can invite my friends from out of town to stay with me! The new apartment will do a lot for my sanity-- the neighborhood is quiet and pretty, and my neighbors are nice. It already feels like my little sanctuary away from the cares of the rest of the world.
