spring update - debt free by 30

Wednesday, March 22, 2017

I said in my inaugural Debt Free by 30 post that I would post monthly updates, but in hindsight I figure quarterly updates will suffice. So how am I doing? Well, pretty good, all things considered! I've been paying consistent, heavy attention to my finances and making significant progress on my obligations. So far, I've been pretty good at motivating myself, but something funny happened recently which has inspired me even more.

I am a sentimentalist. My earliest understanding of grief came to me on the pebbled playground of elementary school, kindergarten. Like a magpie, I treasured a holographic Lisa Frank sticker of three brightly colored balloons. Please imagine the logistics of a 5-year old trying to hang on to a flimsy piece of tiny paper on the battleground of recess - I promptly lost that sticker chasing a little boy across the rubber tires. Oh, my heart. I can still smell the dust of the pebbles, clouding around me as I frantically scoured the Earth for my beloved balloons. Needless to say, I never found that sticker, and I cried. Oh, how I cried.
