I have returned

It's amazing how many things happen in life. I was lucky enough last year to get a car to help me get to work and help me develop my dream of running a small business. Though, I wasn't thorough when it comes to paying back, I enjoyed the extra cash for a while :) hehe :) It's just me. 

But... I've been noticing a dark, overwhelming, gloomy, thunder cloud floating over my head. Yep, it's the debt calling, ringing in my ears, banging out any other seed of thought that tries to stem into something meaninful. When I realised that I'll soon get crushed by this feeling, I decided to take action. And, as usual, I wouldn't be myself if I didn't document it through my Blog. I left a few previously posted things, mainly from the A-Z of 2011, and other gratitude posts, which can be found in the archive -- if any soul is interested. From now, until the very last 'cent' is paid up I will be writing about reaching this particular goal. I like being applauded for the most mundane things, so go ahead, leave your thought in the comment section. 

As of today I have paid up almost 48% of my debt. The reason I'm using % instead of real money is that I think there are many different currencies in the world, and I could be misunderstood. 

People think it's easy saving money when there's a certain bad habit involved....just get rid of this habit, they say. My vice is chocolate, and I think it's much worse than smoking, at least I am informed about the dangers of smoking on the packet, but sweets..... Anyway, I have a small support group, but sometimes I want to say more, and I'm not sure I could do that uninterrupted. 

I want support, hugs, applause! I know I am obliged to give that money back, there is no question about it, and even though I know it's obvious that I need to pay back, I still want a pat on the back for doing it. There. Sounds childish? Oh well. Too bad. 


Now, how DO I get this money when I have a limited amount of resources (day-job salary, English Speaking Zone), out of which every month I give back to those that I owe. Keeping this pace I would be through in about 10-12 months. Yet I want to be through with this debt in 4 months.Possible? For now, I have no reason to doubt myself. 

So, watch my little car ticker speed off to its 100% destination!Yee-haa!

  2. I agree with Lucy. Great goal. I've been trying to figure out how to pay and 8 thousand dollar college debt off in 4 years rather than 8. I work full-time and stash less than 10% of it away into savings. I've got all my credit cards paid off but I still have my car loan. Oh my.... my plan is to get my Indie books out there....

    Good luck to you.
