Lessons Learned

So today I got my very first free credit report. I’ve seen my score before but never seen the whole report. Let’s just say I never wanted to see it before because I used to have this problem with shopping. I had no money when I was 18 and shopped out my emotional problems and stress, then when my credit cards were maxed instead of thinking “hey I should pay these off” I just opened new ones, and so on and so forth. Then when I stopped shopping all my money went to the credit cards, so I needed to use them for basic living needs like toilet paper and groceries.

Needless to say, it got out of hand. Fast forward 3 years of credit card usage and abusage and here I am today. I kicked the credit card habit, and no longer use ANY. I am of coarse still paying for my mistakes. Although I am happy to announce when looking at my credit report I do not feel sad, but empowered. I now know that credit cards are evil in the hands of a girl like me. And if I ever forget I have the next 7 years of payments (hopefully less) to remind me.

I haven’t blogged anything in a while, but not much has been going on either.
I have been working A LOT of overtime, and paying things off for the wedding.
Everything is mostly done and planned, and it is coming up so soon! 4 months and 1 week till the big day. I’m going to try to blog more, not because I want to be the next Julie and Julia or be on Ellen but because I think it’s soothing.
Above is my decide hair style, half up half down. With fun twisty things so it’s not too boring or plain. Only took me 16 months to decide on it. hehe
