Turning 40 apparently triggered something in my brain. A switch has flipped on, and I find myself doing all sorts of grown-up, adult things. I’m making life-altering choices. None of which involve moving to Barbados. In fact, it’s the exact opposite. I’m really wanting to put down some roots.
Remember the goal I had of reaching $500 by the end of February? I did it. I reached $600. I’m now playing phone tag with my finance guy to get that money invested and get it working for me. Because I have a goal for that money. And it’s not my retirement right away. I want to buy a car.
Yes, you read that right. A car. No, I don’t drive – yet. But I will. Yesterday I went out and bought myself the Ontario Driver’s Handbook. And in the next 2 weeks, I’ll go write that test and get my G1. Of course it’ll then be a good 8-12 months before I can drive on my own, but at least I’ll have the process going. Because this is the Year I Adult.
P.S. I’m also going to casually mention that I’ve been dating someone for the past 6 weeks or so. Without gushing too much, it’s going well. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so much in my life. I have a lot of fun with him.
