March Madness...

Hello everyone!

March is coming to a quick end and so is my last semester of law school. I am very excited.

On the financial front, I received my tax refunds for the year. I received approximately $3500 from my federal tax return and almost $200 from the state. This income will go towards payment of my bar classes. Everything else is moving right along and my net worth is still hovering around (-$94k) excluding my tax return since this money is already earmarked for something else.

It should be improvement or minimal declines from here on out. =)

Spring Break…

Hi Everyone.

I’m on Spring Break. I went out of town to relax for a few days but now I am back. I still have the rest of the week off from work. If you haven’t guessed, I’ve been a little burned out from 1) work, 2) school, 4) bar exam stuff and 3) trying to find a law position. A little frustrating to say the least. My finances are moving along. Here is my recap from February.

Reasons for Improvement:

  • Annual bonus of $3,500
  • Tuition Reimbursement of $1,300

The improvement is a little misleading because in March, I’ve already paid off $4,300 in credit card spending from bar fees, Spring Break vacation to Mexico, the deposit for my sister’s wedding in Cancun, as well as regular monthly discretionary spending. So as of today, my net worth is hovering around (-$91.6k) which is still an improvement from January’s (-$94k).
