A Little Spring Cleaning + Financial Update.
Alas, here's what really happened. (Haha, I'm obnoxious. I know.) Parents left for the weekend and Shanny and I drank some wine, watched The Voice, hung out with Michelly when she returned home from her LA/OC part-time living (due to job and acting), and had a few long-haired men with rad moustaches over to play music in our living room. Nothing that crazy at all. But still: there was a tub full of dishes that needed to be washed, a bathroom that needed a little clorox wipe love, and a living room that needed some tidying up. So I said, "Hey sister, lets do some cleaning and make this place look nice before Mama gets home." To my surprise, she said, "Ok." I love a cooperative sister, don't you.
And so there was some cleanin' in our Monday afternoon. And now there is some relaxin'. Just about ready to turn on the finale of THE BACH, but before I do: How about a financial update, ay?
After all, the reason I started this blog is to plan/track my moving to New York, so I think it's only right that I document the progress made.
If you refer back to the last post about saving and financials, I was in a starting debt of $3,158.
I'm proud to say my current debt has decreased to $1,601.
That's $1, 557 PAID OFF!
- Disneyland Pass is paid off and reactived
- Mom is paid off for all the financial help the past few months (thanks Mom!)
- And my Capitol One balance is back down to $0.
I mean obviously, I've got a ways to go still, but I'm well on my way! The job is paying me well (in dollars and in pie) and I'm on the hunt for a second part-time gig to help the savings process arrive quicker.
Meanwhile, I just got an unexpected message today from an old high school friend who is currently living in New York, working for an awesome-sounding company that is hiring. I have to do a little more research into it, but if all checks out, I might just apply and see if maybe I can get my butt on over to the city even sooner! Landing a job in advance-now that would be stellar.
Either way, life is good-- things are happening, money is going to the right places, dishes are getting washed, and tonight is the SEASON FINALE OF THE BACHELOR!!! Let the guilty pleasure begin.
