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!


  1. Wow! Impressive goal. I can tell you're going to make it.

    1. Thank you, I need these words! :)

  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.

  3. Thank you, I'm off to check your blog too :)
