Trying to look on the bright side

So I worked my one 4 hour shift for the week yesterday. It really sucks because I know my paycheck is going to look like crap. It also sucks because it means that I am going to be spending a lot of time home alone. I don't have the money to go out with my friends.
With that said, on the bright side I have a lot of time to work on my game projects and try to get a real job. I also will have more time to come on here and try to figure out how to change how I view life. I will also get a chance to work out whenever I want during the day. I'll have to walk there though because gas is WAY too expensive.
I'm also trying to quit that nasty habit of mine again. Lets see if I can last two weeks this time. I just need to focus on staying mentally balanced and then I won't get as tempted.
Also on the bright side I haven't had a suicidal thought in over a week which is good. I haven't thought about cutting in a few days too. I think those steps I took last week are really helping.
