I’ve been slacking off on calculating my net worth. Didn’t do it for July, August or September. I wanted to include my auto loan, which is probably around $1000 but then Honda Finance decided to change their login system. I meant to call them but just never end up doing it!
So rather than put it off another month, I included an estimate of $1200 remaining on the Honda CR-V. A few comments:
Overall net worth: Generally stable, considering that I’ve spent a lot of money this summer eating out. I also have a higher rate of rent ($600) to pay, as well as payments for my Yoga Teacher Training tuition (~$333); both are withdrawn on a monthly basis.
Selling off personal property: $1500 total; from the Ikea standing table ($200), cross country skiis and boots ($300) and my kayak and kayak gear ($1000)./
You may be wondering why I even sold some of those things I had worked hard to acquire. Personal belongs that I really enjoy and put me in a better lifestyle of healthy living.
I have not mentioned to a lot of people yet, but I left my 5-year relationship a few weeks ago. Emotionally, I’m recovering must faster and better than I had expected. I have lots of close friends and family that have been able to support me (my grandmother said, “You don’t need him.” I really wish she were able to say DTMFA* in Chinese). I also started going to a therapist.
I really didn’t want take the millenial-esque approach and vomit gory TMI** details all over the Interwebs nilly-willy. I’m in the process of wrapping up some details and trying to get a few of my belongings back. Obviously I’ve taken the kayak at a huge (financial) loss, but extricating myself from my former partner has not been without disputes or struggles.
Anyway, that’s it for now. Finances are okay. Emotions are okay. Physical body is great. Self-confidence is actually higher than normal. YTT has been phenomenal. Making friends in Kitchener-Waterloo has been slow but starting to take off!
I’ll continue to blog more over the next months as I know I’ve been neglectful, often just microblogging – via Instagram – instead of putting down my words here. I intend to write more and I really do love to write in this space of mine, even if there are very few readers.
Last thing: Please, please, please write back to me if you read my blog. You don’t necessarily have to comment on the page itself, but a text, an email or phone call is lovely too.
*DTMFA is an abbreviation for “Dump the mother f***er already”
