TPS Report

today i finally got paid for work this month; a little mixup at first but things got figured out quickly. basically they only paid me for one week of work instead of the whole month. now that i have money, i sat down tonight and figured out a monthly budget so i can manage my money in a more logical manner. i've never really had to live on a budget but i am going to give it a shot.

this year has really shaped me into more of an adult than almost any other time. i have to make sure i have food to stay alive, pay bills/rent, create a budget, figure out holiday plans, etc. these are tough decisions to make. i liked it better when i had to decided if i wanted to build a micro-machine city or a lego castle.

i am finding it harder to find time for my passions; i don't want to forget about things i want to do. i need to figure out a way that i can still bike, hike, camp, play guitar, shoot short videos, photograph things, and play roller hockey.

take it in strides.

You just have to make the time Al.... life fills in so quickly and everybody has other things for you to do with your time.... literally schedule it in, otherwise it will be lost. We have totally seen you grow up this past year and are so proud of you!!!!
