Whoa! Who needs a jack o’lantern when we’ve got the Sun. Our very own star beat out all the competition this year to claim the crown for best Halloween costume. Unfortunately, the crown melted when the Sun tried to wear it. Fortunately, our source of warmth is still in good spirits and will be for another few billion years.
The Student Loan
I’ve put $5,000 toward my student loans. $1,000 came from my paycheck. The other $4,000 came from my Life Fund. My Life Fund is now down to $4,000. It felt like the right thing to do. I’m feeling a bit more secure in my job. At least for the next few months. It’s good to see it dropping, but the lower I get the balance, the slower everything feels. Regardless, though, I’m very happy that it’s down to $5K!
An Enemy Returns from the Crypt
My credit card debt has returned ($1,209), almost entirely due to an expensive plane ticket purchase to visit family over the holidays. I’m looking forward to the visit this year, but hate how much more expensive holiday tickets are. Ugh. One more thing to pay off before I can get back to chopping down the student loan.
That’s it. A quick update today. Off to work now…..sigh.
Anyone dressing up for Halloween this year?
