Back Again!

August 31st, 2009 at 09:05 pm

Okay so I'm back to blogging again.

I get so caught up with other things I just forget to log-on once in awhile and update. Man, the summer has gone by super fast.

So since the last time I blogged, I turned 24. Hmm, I got a new assignment/contract. Not any better than the previous one. My previous assignment may want to take me back and hire me on permanent. I'm working on that as we speak.

Hmm... back to saving again still not quite back to where I want to be but at least I'm saving even if it's only $50 a week.

Also, I consolidated my student loans. I now have a fixed rate of 3.... something. It's in grace period until 9/21. So I'm trying to throw some money at it right now because everything I pay towards it goes straight to principal. And then once it's off grace again it will start accruing interest. So the entire loan is like $12890.

And I know previously I said that I was going to do a charity of some sort and I had originally picked the animal shelter, but I had a change of heart. Not that I don't care about the animals, because I do but I've decided to go with one in honor of my dad. The National Aphasia Association. My dad had a stroke back in 2001 and as a result of his stroke he had aphasia. So I've decided to set aside $20 each paycheck (I'm currently getting paid every week, so roughly $80/month) and on the 1 year anniversary of my dad's death (April 2010) I'm going to make a donation of what I had set aside. So far I have $105 set aside. I thought about doing it around Christmas time but I figure if I do it on his anniversary I can save up more money to donate.

But that's pretty much it, work and the small little projects that I'm working on on the side to keep myself busy.

I should update my stats soon. Maybe if I get a chance this weekend. But until then.
