    I want to start doing this, but I don't know if I'm allowed to, and my parents promised they would pay it off but they keep putting it off. Maybe I should just set the money aside for now...

    I am uncomfortable living with debt. I might run out of time to pay it back.

      @Stephanie Do you mean with student debt? Is there a deadline to start paying it back?

        @ExplorerSoul There isn't at the moment, but with Donald Trump in power who knows what could happen? I'm not living in America (or from there), but the financial stuff affects everyone. At the moment, you don't have to start paying back your loan until you want/you are earning over a certain amount of money a year. They only add interest if you go overseas. But, I want to pay it off before this system ends. My parents are not worried about it, but I am. Plus, the bible says to avoid being indebted to anyone.

    So. This is going to end up being the thing that is a mega challenge for me this year. I'm quite used to living paycheck to paycheck even though I despise this every time it's paycheck time! And so today, without too much prompting or thinking, I happily went out and bought myself a winter coat, which despite being needed, was way overpriced. And I paid for it and walked away simultaneously happy with the jacked and unhappy with spending money. Sigh. Time to look at what I'm going to do with this. My current plan of "just don't spend anything" isn't working for me. Back to the drawing board.

    Finishing up my holiday and bought two magazines at a ridiculous price. I'm recording this here because, even though in my mind, it's justified (fancy mags about business and management blah blah) in reality, if I keep doing stuff like that, I will continue to move further away from my goal. Which isn't what I wanted. Time to get real!

    Currently owe a whole lot of money due to dumb debt. Just worked out that there's no way I'm paying off any of this debt by the end of the year, which is kind of grim. If I give myself a fair amount of time to do so though, I should be ok. Time to knuckle down if I want to change careers and change things in my life!

    We have two student loans, one medical bill and a motorcycle to pay off. I think this can be finished easily within a year and a half
