I’m back from vacation, the islands were beautiful.
Now that I’m back it’s time to buckle down on my finances, I got a little side track but I’m ready to get back serious.
All major bills are paid through September, this gives me time to look for a job or new contract.
Prior to leaving I had two really great interviews but no response. I hate being ghosted by recruiters, especially if you contacted me.
Upon my return I knocked out a few applications, and next week I have two interviews lined up. Fingers crossed that something pans out. I get the feeling the job market will be switching to the employer.
My COBRA ends in August so I started shopping around. I found a few on the exchange but the deductibles are high, about $8k. Hopefully I land a gig and can get group insurance.
I took the night to up date my spending register and balance a few accounts. Of course travel and food were the budget busters. I’ll finalize every tomorrow. Net worth is still trending positively and I’m finally starting to earn some dividends on my investments.
Though small, I’m loving how I’ve gone from being scared of investing to loving learning all about it. I know they say don’t watch daily, but doing so has helped me get a better understanding on what’s happening. Tonight was the first time I actually balanced my IRA account.
Slow and steady wins the race.
