Hey, there! I hope everyone has had a great week. My week was super busy, start to finish. I worked on everything from gardening and baking to meeting up with new friends. I even managed to make up some of the hours from my call-in on Tuesday. Overall, I’ve had a good week. My new med is still too much, but I suspect we’ll be changing that soon. My wallet will definitely appreciate it.
Bridget shared the math on why you should pay off your debt early. I’m currently throwing an extra $100 a month toward my car loan and have paid off more than $3,000 in principle since my first payment on September 1st, 2015. Since I only financed $13,500, I would say that’s a pretty hefty chunk of change. Yay for federal refunds.
Trent from The Simple Dollar encouraged readers to do their own thing. Lately, I’ve noticed the loss of friendships from high school. While it aches, it’s important to note that we’re all in our early twenties trying to move toward personal goals. Right now is the time to be distant and a bit more introspective.
Seth wrote along the same line Trent did when he spoke about not spreading yourself too thin. As someone with a variety of interests and normally not a lot of energy, this really resonated. I know I can’t keep my current pace up for long without disastrous results, so it put things into perspective.
And now it’s time for…
Rosemary shared some of her more destructive habits as a youth. I would watch out for triggers here-body dysmorphia, self harm, etc. I used to have some similar compulsions, so it was nice to have the solidarity.
What have you been up to this week?
