my first approval!

Woot!
 
I know most of you wouldn't get excited for your first approval but I have been turned down so many stinking times i was ready to give up.
 
I got a 300cl orchard card. $8/mo fee and 8.9% APR!
 
i was so skeptical i called the number from the 'backdoor list' and confirmed i didn't get Phish'ed!!  lol

And I've found the trick is not to stop the sliding
But to find a graceful way of staying slid
