Well, this week is payday. That’s normally a great thing, but this week is a bit depressing. See, my awesome job at Linux Journal pays me (again, awesome), but the amount I get from LJ, plus the amount I get from the school pushes me into a new tax bracket. The precise tax bracket is one I refer to as, “Rape and pillage the citizen”. A full half of my income from Linux Journal is going to our lovely government. Why the gubmint decided this level of gouging was required is quite frankly beyond my comprehension, but they’re not exactly a cooperative bunch when it comes to “talking about things reasonably”.
So yeah, this paycheck (where I had my deductions adjusted to compensate for the increased taxation) will be painful. Ugh.
