The economy is in the poop-er and yet we still seem to be asking why. Or, well maybe you aren’t but a lot of people still don’t know why. I try not to think about it too much because it just reminds me of my own financial situation. I’m in debt like most Americans and I really wish I wasn’t. It’s my own fault, so don’t feel too sorry for me. I’m lucky, in a way, because I was able to stop before reaching the 30,000 or 60,000 mark. Now I’m on the track towards freedom from debt, with a solid good plan.
Trouble briefly arouse when I had an unexpected immediate transfer out of the store I’d been working at for about a year or so. I work retail, like so many of you, it’s just a day job. My first store of about six years was closed and so I was transferred twenty minutes away from home. But, now I’m much closer, though it was involuntary. I was concerned to, because the process of the transfer didn’t go smoothly. In fact, I didn’t even know for sure which store I was going to end up at till last Sunday. Things seem to be working out though, as I don’t have to worry about not having enough hours for my next paycheck.
Things are settling down now and I have a lot less to be nervous about. I guess sometimes change has a way of kicking you in the butt when you least expect it. However, I find that it usually is for the better, or at least not as bad as it seems.
