March was a good month to me. I officially became a thirtysomething (well, a thirtynothing) and celebrated with many friends, including some who came from a distance. As I hardly see my friends these days, it was great to get together. Also this month, I traveled to Florida to celebrate my grandmother’s birthday — she is now a nonagenarian.
The cash and checking accounts are always in flux, so changes don’t represent much. The same goes for my credit card. I pay the balance off every month, but it’s good to know I put less on the card this month. My accounts receivable for business is high because I have several invoices still outstanding. To see how my work-outside-work did in March, stay tuned for my income statement.
I have to say, I’m happy with the 16% improvement since last month. If I could pull that off every month, I’d be set. Realistically, I’ll be happy if I am able to spend less than my income in April. Luckilly I have enough left over from March. With a vacation woth my family and girlfriend in the middle of April, I may still be in good shape (except for the promised trip to Disneyland).
