I wrote this a couple a days ago, as I wanted to reflect a little bit on the whole turning “twenty-seven” thing. That and I have to work a day shift on my actual birthday – which means waking up early and then going to sleep early because I’ve got a day shift the next day too (lame).
This will be the first year that I have a permanent full time job, which is pretty exciting. A lot has changed in the last year. I changed jobs (casual to full time, different hospitals), I bought a car (and now have a lovely monthly car payment), I moved out of my parents’ house, and I’m doing okay. It’s weird having a job and an income now because it means that I have money that I can use to buy things, and can afford (in theory) to go places. Or something like that.
Over the next year, I’d love to do a few things:
- Continue with the saving for what I’m very generically referring to as The Future. This is primarily Future Home/Real Estate Purchasing. Because apparently that costs money $$.
- Finish funding my emergency fund. I started this earlier this year, my goal is to reach 6mos of expenses and I’m currently halfway there.
- Go on vacation. I have one trip planned (not booked) for New York City next October, and I want to include seeing a Broadway play in that as well.
Still have some growing up to do (although apparently I’m an adult now, who knew?), but we’ll see what the future holds. I do have some goals/things that I would like to do before I turn thirty, but I think I’ll save that for another post.
