I just finished my taxes and am very happy. I always make one urchase with my tax money to treat myself. I got a new camera one year and a laptop another. But when I do this I make sure I have most of my tax return left over and use that to pay bills.
This year I'm going to put the rest away in a savings account.
This is a bit of a change for me and I know I will be tempted to use it. But if I don't I will have a nice little nest egg for when I try and find a job in New York City. I can envision my readers going 'ah-ha!' as my insanity makes a little bit of sense. Please alow me to help it make more sense.
If I put this money aside I will have almost half of what I will need. That will shorten my wait time between finishing college and moving to NYC greatly. At the same time i will have finished paying for my car and will hopefully still have a grace period before I have to start paying my school loan back.
I do not know how having a student loan and financial assistance will effect my taxes. This is something I will have to wait until next year to find out. I have a few more things I need to do to see if I can transfer to a better college. If done soon enough I would start in May of this year. I need to check to see how that is going later this week.
