Hi all, I'm happy to say that I will finally be in the position to pay off my student loan by the end of the year *knocks on wood*. I have a balance of just under $7000 with an interest rate of 6.7% I have a fully funded emergency fund $8000 which I will be hoping to double this year (also achievabl...

Thanks to you both. Now that I've been on my own I feel so much relief because of how much weight I had been carrying. That is a sure sign that it was time to go. Right now I'm going to use the extra hours I've gained in a day to focus on me, my own personal growth, and my career. And, will be doubl...

I will say that my divorce ended due to the same routine you are talking about. My ex-wife would go to work, come home, eat, and then crash in bed. The communication and bonding time between us suffered to the point we both moved in different directions. In essence my ex-wife became married more to...

Hi all, Thanks for the responses. Yes I am a millennial and that could be part of the reason I have the expectations that I have but I'm not expecting a perfect job or perfect life. I would love to have a life outside of work though. I would like to come home before 7 and not resent having to cook/d...

Hi, I'm relatively new to the work field, and thought perhaps some of you that have been working for a while, can offer some insight and advice. I finished grad school 6 years ago, and have been fortunate to find work in my field, and make a good living. I make 95K per year, plus have really awesome...

Put a line item in your budget for how much you're willing to "give" each month. My husband and I don't have one right now while we finish off student loans, but when that's done it will be $50/month and increase yearly. This includes giving to charity, supporting podcasts we like, donati...

I wanted to post an update to my journal. I do have a financial update, but more so a discovery about myself that I need to work on :worried: Financial: I have upped my short term savings from 10,500 to 11,500. Not that significant but it would have been more, if I hadn't taken a trip to Jamaica. I ...

Greetings! You seem to have a solid grasp of your situation. Congrats!! Some tidbits to consider, no need to answer online. FYI, I'm twenty years ahead of you, soon to hit twentieth wedding anniversary, and have handled the household finances the entire time so far. How many months of expenses does...

I have been meaning to start a journal for a while now, but keep getting side-tracked. Anyway I decided that today will be the day that I start. I'm 29 years old, and will be turning 30 this year. I joined the workforce about 5 years ago after grad school but had a few set-backs because I got divorc...

My benefits advisor said that I can take a check for what I paid into the pension since I didn't make it to the 5 years, or I can roll it over into the 457b. I'd have to pay taxes on it, but no penalties. If I made it 5 years then I wouldn't be able to take my contributions with me. There is also no...

Hi all, I'm starting a new job at the end of the month, and I'm trying to figure out what to do with my pension contributions since I didn't vest. I've been there 2 years, and it takes 5 to vest in the plan. I can leave the money if I thought I would return to City government, and then my time will ...

Thanks for the advice everyone. It's really helpful to hear from people who are in similar situations. Unfortunately right now I don't have a mentor and can't think of someone in my organization that could serve as one. But I will read the book suggested, and I am actively trying to be more assertiv...

I'm a woman, and I look much younger than I am which makes it ten times worse, and have had people make some pretty rude comments about me being a "girl" etc., even though I'm fairly articulate, and hold my fair share at work. I have started dressing differently (jackets instead of sweater...
