So I don't know if anyone has noticed but I've had this thing for over a year now.
What have I learned? How has my life changed?
1) I've lived in the same place all this time, but now I feel a little less over my head financially.
2) I think I understand my own goals better-and I'm closer to actually achieving them ( primarily educational goals-I've got over a grand stashed away for more classes ).
I'll add to this list as I think of more.
