I've been working really hard at moving forward with my career and getting out of debt. I think anyone reading this probably already knows, but I have a few life updates that I'd like to log here. In April of last year, I set up a payment plan on my student loans. I finally saw a light at the end of the tunnel of debt that I've been living in for a long time now. I've been working hard and staying up on my payments. If all goes well, I'll be out of debt in just over a year. I never thought this was possible. I can not express how life changing this has been for me. This has sparked inspiration and motivation in me to move my career forward. In September of 2015 I got a new job and left Dakota Stones behind. I started at Matt's Moving. Its a small moving company in South Saint Paul. Its a really small company and the people are really nice. I felt good about moving on from my job at Dakota Stones, but I knew it wasn't the end of the line for me. A few weeks ago, I accepted a job at Treasure Island Casino. I see this as a great step forward for me. I'll be making more money and it should help me get out of debt faster. I'm excited! I've been living out in Bay City with my mom since October. It's been very isolating, but its been nice, too. My life has slowed down considerably and I'm able to focus on my goals. I've been actually working out and eating healthy as well. I started working out in November after work. Now, my Mom and I joined the YMCA. I'd like to find someone to play racquetball with me, but for now, I'm just doing some exercises and shooting hoops. I've laid out many of my life goals on paper and I have motivation. I'm feeling good about where my life is going and the opportunities I'm creating for myself. I'm proud of myself. Thank you to everyone who loves and supports me.
