Hishtadlus...

Run to say Parshas HaKetores from a parchment..
Say Poseiach Es Yodecha with the 3 diferent interpretations..
Run to the pushkeh to put in 3 coins during Vayevorach Dovid..
Have in mind the special name of Hashem that controls parnassah during Boruch Oleinu
Say Parshas Haman..
And don’t forget to say it twice with the Targum on the Tueday of Parshas B’Shalach..
Bidding wars for P’sicha for Neila on Yom Kippur..
Grabbing Matzah from a Rebbe on Pesach..
Say V’Yiten L’cha..after Havdala..
Dripping wine into your pockets after Havdalah..
Throwing some over your doorstep..
Shouting L’David Mizmor at the top of your lungs Rosh Hashana night..
Then using a new knife for the Challah..
Dashing across the room every time a crumb falls on the floor..


..let me tell ya..
It aint easy makin a livin these days..

:) yes all that and a multiple of additional things to add if you are still single - say shir hashirim for 40 days, follow it with perek shira for 40 days, Nishmas every evening, add in the special Yehei Razon for a Zivig in shema Kolainu, your two halachos a day which is meant to be a 'definate' saviour and don't forget those extra parokim of tehillim the rebbetzin told you to say daily. Now all this is managable in the summer but in the winter days all this has to be done before sunset and you are meant to have a full day job! :) As long as it all ends well!

Making a living is easy. Paying yeshiva tuition.... THAT's the hard part.
