Yesterday was payday, which is always exciting, even if I am not starting off broke like I used to!
I briefly mentioned this in my last post, but I received my tuition reimbursement for the summer semester with my last payroll. There was a bit of a mix-up, and they taxed it when it is not supposed to be taxed, so that was corrected with this payroll. I was able to send a big chunk of that reimbursement to 401k loan #1, and will send the remainder by the end of the month after I move some more money around. That will go a long way to getting that loan paid off - as of right now, between regular payroll deductions and about half of my tuition reimbursement for the fall semester, it's looking like that will be paid off in January. I will then shift my focus to paying off loan #2, and if all goes to plan, then that should be paid off by June 2022. I will happily accept the increase to my take home pay for a while before I take out a loan to cover my plastic surgery, which is likely going to be no sooner than Fall 2022. Have to wait and see - the plan there has shifted a bit and will lead to it being further out than I originally thought. I wish it was tomorrow, but all things considered, will work out better this way.
Otherwise, it was an uneventful payday - paid a bunch of bills, moved a bunch of money around to various places. I have 2 bank account bonuses pending - one should be in my account within the next week and a half, the other is a 3 part bonus from a hyper local credit union that I think will come sometime in October. I haven't decided if I am going to try for any more bank account bonuses this year, I've had a very good year in this area ($3000 in cash, not including points that were converted into gift cards for a few), and may hold off so that I can save a few for next year. Not many more that I am eligible for anyway.
School is very busy this semster, I am taking 15 credits, and only now at the start of Week 3 am I starting to fall into a rythym. I am doing better in the math and statistics classes than I expected to. Just gotta get through, then one more math class and I am done with math classes for the rest of my life!
I'm still doing plenty of plotting and planning, but now it all seems to be falling into place with the systems I have created and have been diligently working inside.
