New year and a lot of new things! A lot has happened since my last post. I've had time today to sit down and write this new blog for 2012 as I took the day off from work to rest. Happy New Year to all who read this. I have come to the conclusion I like to write blogs once in a while just to read them in the future, more so then to write them for veiwers to read, but if you are one of the very few that do read this, I thank you and hope you enjoy.
I'm still working two jobs, the money is great, but I seem to never pay down my credit card with it! Go figure. More money = more spending haha. Time to manage my money a little better. I recently sold my old car, 02 Jetta, and bought myself a 2012 Veloster with a very nice down payment, so I'm saving a lot of money there now with lower car payments and lower insurance! Never thought I'd buy a Hyundai, but after doing a lot of research and looking at a lot of different cars I was sold on the Veloster. It's basically everything I want and fully loaded for a great price you can't complain....even if it isn't a race car. I miss my turbo I had in the jetta but I'm happy with my new car and it's fuel economy!
I have also planned to move out of my apartment I share with a friend of mine. I am moving to a new building down the street and my brother and his girlfriend are moving in with me. I get along great with my bro and I'm sure that it'll feel a lot more like home. I have just two and a half more weeks before I move. Thats pretty much just two more weekends to get stuff packed and ready for the move. I'm very excited! Moving does equal more debt but it's being managed in the way of buy now and pay later through the store. I've had great experience with this and it helps. I know what you're thinking....not the best way to be managing money when trying to pay off debt. Car payment and no interest -no payment plans from stores don't count for me when it comes to spending money, instead wasting money is more like going out to dinner and the bar every weekend. Christmas didn't help either and I had some major repairs to do on the jetta before I sold it. I ended up buying a new TV, coffee table, end tables and a couch for the living room for my new place. I needed these things as my room mate owned this stuff. I can pay off my credit card and save up to pay these items off in due time without worry.
In gaming news, I've had the pleasure to start playing Skyrim on the 360 and I'm loving it. I have yet to manage a good schedule for getting some gaming time in on a regular basis but I play games when I can. New years resolution = play more games! I thought I'd also mention here I just bought the new Samsung Galaxy Nexus phone, my contract was up and so I decided to pick this one up right away since it had just become available to my service provider. I wrote a blog back in May of 2011 about the Google Nexus S, this phone was great and is my reason I now have the latest and greatest by Samsung and in love with Android.
So that's it for now, 2012, new car, new phone, new apartment, new tv,new resolution and a place to look forward to calling home. I'll update this blog once I'm all moved in.
