More Money More Problems

Or not.

If you're smart you'll be able to resit that burning sensation happening in your pocket caused by more income.

I started a new job last week. Full time. Thats 40 hours a week guys. It's not much more pay than what I made with my previous employer (Apple) , but for the hours and working in my field; it's pretty great.

I have literally never had this much money to my name after paying rent and bills. I'm usually left with just enough (barely enough) to eat, gas up Victor (my car), and feed my cats. This was my life every month. I couldn't afford to hang out, or sometimes even buy necessities like toiletries. It was hell.

But now that I'm making almost three times what I made I've had to sit down and figure out how to not lose my shit and purchase the entirety of one of my amazon wish lists. Although I might still do that...

So listen up! This is how you try to handle that wad of cash.

Let's Get Serious

It's about time I get more serious about my blogging. 

I have so many ideas and insights, like anyone really, and sharing them with others is an opportunity I've failed to take advantage of. I sit around most days with these epic monologues happening in my head and I never write them down or share them. I just tend to sit there, staring into space, aghast at my vast mind and intellect *rolls eyes* 

I'm no expert. I'm only 23, just starting my first full-time job, and I've only lived alone for about three years now. There is so much I still have to figure out but I think that as I go it will make for interesting life lessons, entertainment, and advice. I've learned about friends, heartbreak, finances, cars, feeding oneself, and really anything else you have to venture into when you move away from home and college ends.

There is so much to life that I didn't realize until it was too late.

And that's just how it works. 
No one can really tell you what will …
