I have finally found a nice relaxing Saturday morning in which I am able to dedicate an hour to providing a post to you all! (Although you will not see this until Monday) It seems to have been a very good time for self-improvement lately as I have gotten many things done that I have been wanting to do for a few years now.
To start off with something I am VERY excited about; I have started courses towards a degree in Business Administration. I am only doing individual courses at the moment (Due to time constraints) however, as my personal time frees up a tad I will be adding more and more. Currently I am taking Financial Accounting 1, it is not much but it is stepping stones into seeing if going back to school is actually for me. I have not been having many problems with this, it is rather quite easy actually, I was surprised. Mind you, it is a first year course.
In regards to my debt and line of credit, I have been steadily paying it off, and had it almost paid off but then everything with school came in, so all of my school related expenses (and a few others) are now on my line of credit. It now sits at approximately $1,900. I am quite lucky as my courses will be reimbursed by my employer, I am just required to complete and pass the course before they will give me the money. However, they will not reimburse interest paid, but I am pretty sure I can handle paying a few dollars for a $1,000 course.
I have increased my savings by another $100 a month. This now gives me $200 a month going into my RRSPs, and $100 going into my self-directed TFSA. Once my line of credit is paid off (again) I will upgrade this amount to include the minimum of $375 I have been paying off on my line of credit each money. This will definitely help my investment amounts.
Something I have been having a ton of fun with lately is something a lot of you might cringe towards. I have started, slowly, investing into Forex. I will obviously be posting about this because it is super fun. But I will be saving this for another post.
Anyways, I hope you all have a great day and I hope you are having as much fun as I am!
