Money Stress

The hardest thing sometimes is looking at my finances. During the last few years, I’ve spent far too freely, and with the added cost of moving, I’m feeling the financial pinch.

Soon, I’ll be sending a bunch of money to the government for the taxes I need to pay them on this years income. On top of that, I still have credit card debt to pay down. Add my reasonable pay to the equation, and you have a situation that isn’t too fun. It is better than some, worse than others.

I’m hopeful that I can dig myself out of this all soon so that I can start living my life. Moving into a new apartment, it is hard not to look around and want to replace things, purchase new things, and really make the space my own, but there are other things quickly becoming a priority in my life. I never thought I would say this, but I’m planning for a life with Annie, and that will take some financial resources to pull off.

Of course, there are a number of things I’ll need to do over the next year or two to make myself as financially sound as possible. I just hope that I can stay the course, and maybe even find some local client work to fill the gaps.
