I officially got my end date for my job up here in NY. It’s shaping up to be November 11. 11/11 Maybe I should make a wish now huh?
It’s probably a good thing the job is almost over because I’m not sure how much longer I can last in the van. Temperature wise it’s starting to drop off at night and I didn’t bring any fall clothes with me to stay warm. I do have some good blankets at night but hopefully the next few weeks will come and go quickly without any problems.
I looked at my pay stub last week and honestly I’m a little disappointed. On paper, it looks like I had a pretty good couple of months up here. But then taxes knocks out a third of that. Add on the debt I’ve been paying off along with the general cost of living up here in NYC and I feel as if I have nothing to show for it.
I paid off a lot of things that I needed to since I’ve been up here though and if things go well by the time I leave I should have my final credit card down to zero. That was my main goal for being up here and it really was me learning a lesson in self control and being financially responsible. Most importantly though, I tithed on all of it. And I’m proud of that. God has been teaching me love and generosity this past year since reading A Blessed Life by Robert Morris and it has really challenged me. I’m very grateful and thankful for the time spent growing and I’m excited for the future. I like to tell people now that I live in a van because I’m waiting for my tour bus to get finished. I think stand up comedy is in my future, along with public speaking. I don’t know what I will be doing in the future but I am trusting God that He will continue to reveal it to me one step at a time.
I hope you all are doing well. Not sure how to end this post so I am going to do it right here. Haha.
