it was a good day. I’ve been really pushing foreword with achieving some of my goals and I really feel like I made headway today. Mike n I had brunch at the Broadway grill they have a buffet that is pretty good. The waiter there is incredibly hot and seems to pay a lot of attention (I’m thinking big tip here) to us. We did a little shopping for stink sticks (incense) and a few things we needed for the house. In the space of 3 hours we quickly dropped 140.00 bucks on stuff that we really did need to get. Its amazing to me how quickly money gets spent. One of my goals is to rein in the expenses and start saving some. I have made up a lot of ground on my retirement by working for the city and putting extra money away, pre-tax. It is the one thing that I really wish were actually taught in high school is life economics or something similar. Unless your parents teach about these things you really enter into adulthood with very little guidance about money and savings and retirement. I didn’t start even thinking about my retirement account until I was in my later 30’s. All this is not making for an interesting read so I think I’ll end it here. I’ll leave it with if you can save as much as you can as early as you can that was the lesson I’ve learned over the years.
