Weekly Money Check-Up

Your going to think me pathetic but I am so excited to be writing this post. Things have been really crazy these past couple of weeks that I haven't had time to do one, and I confess I missed it. This time last week I was studying for my A&S exam that was last Wednesday. Well I am happy to report that I passed first time around.  Now that the work stuff is finally out of the way, I can focus on getting my personal goals completed.

1. The most I’ve spent this last week was on a Car, the starting cost was $3,000.  

2. Today I am thankful  having a full time job. I know I have said that several times but, I am glad especially with it no longer hanging over my head. I have the luxury of knowing that I will have a steady pay coming in during these strange economic times.

3. Money can’t buy happiness. One free thing I did last week that made me happy was Learning and changing my car's oil and filter. I got burnt as SH**  and I am suffering from it now, but let me tell you its very empowering to know that I can change my own oil! 

4. I will consider this week a success if I  get my Duke of ED book signed by my Prof. this weekend, getting my BF moved in his new place and my car passing safety with out any major issues. Lofty goals I know.

5. A good friend is some you are completely conferrable around.


  1. Congrats on passing your exam!! And on buying a car!! Woo hoo! A lot of things have happened for you in the past little while - all GOOD by the sounds of it.

  2. Congrats on passing the exam and even with the car stuff many good things seem to be happening with you so I can almost feel your excitement. It must also be really relieving not to have to worry about work. Have a great week.
