I was glad to see my paycheck in my account this morning. I am supposed to be paid on the 15th and last day of every month, it comes early if that date falls on a holiday or a weekend. So I suspected it would be today rather than tomorrow, as my company is closed worldwide tomorrow.
I currently have my paycheck going into two separate checking accounts. One is my main account that I use for the majority of my bills/spending, etc, the other is what I call my housing account. After the 15th's payday, I adjusted the amount going into my housing account to cover a maintenance increase for 2022 (maintenance is basically like an HOA fee for my ownership structure). That was reflected today, so while it's very minor, just one more item on a very long list of little things to make sure happen!
I hustled to get online and pay the rest of the bills (I have very few bills on autopay) so that my balances could update asap - I'm anxious to do my 2021 wrap-up! I'll most likely still have to wait until Monday, but at least it feels like I took action haha. I still need to transfer information over to my 2022 budget file, but that can wait until I have final 2021 numbers. I've done a lot of it, just need to make the move over.
I passed all 3 credit exams I had planned this break - my brain is so very tired but it was worth it. I am officially not opening the school laptop until January 18th!!! I was pretty aggressive when it came to school this year, but it set me up well for the rest of my degree program - I need to take 10 more classes, I will spread that over 4 semesters, and not have a terribly heavy course load again like I did last semester. I am on track to graduate in either summer of fall of 2023.
