Mid-May Checkpoint

May 16th, 2008 at 09:17 am

So... May is going a little slower than I originally planned for. However I must say I'm doing pretty well for only working part-time. Luckily I was able to pick up extra hours between job searching and sprucing up my resume. I'm so glad that I made myself a cushion before leaving my full-time job so that I have wiggle room to find something I really want to do without really suffering the consequences of not working full-time.

So anyways here's the rundown on the accounts.
Savings #1: 11,040 (new additions $75 from Checking transfer, and interest)
Savings #2: 1,619 (new additions $50 from rebate check)
Savings #3: 750 (new additions $50 from turning in loose coin)

Roth IRA: 1,500 (I need to get on this year's contribution)
401K: 480
Brokerage Account: 25
Employee Stock Plan: 318

Credit Cards (4): roughly $505 (I kinda rounded up to the nearest even amount... so in reality I have a little bit less)
Student Loan $15,486 (payment due on the 21st. Have May,June and July's payment saved up in my checking account)

That's pretty much it, I get paid next week. The day after Memorial Day I'm leaving for California for two weeks to spend time with family and possibly check out employment possibilities and west-coast living. Everyone keeps telling me that California is expensive. Yeah I know, but Northern Virginia is almost that expensive too. What frustrates me is that everyone likes to tell me what I CAN'T do...I'm determined and once I set my mind to something I'll make it work and accomplish it. Smile We'll see what happens because ultimately it's my decision! Smile BTW my round-trip ticket to California from Washington DC was only $230 on Virgin Atlantic, everywhere else it was around $400!!! And I paid cash for it... so more woo hoo.
