I am a little hesitant about announcing this, because I know that there are so many who work so hard and are struggling financially in this tough economy. I never want to come off boastful or portray that my life is perfect, because I promise–it’s not.
But I do have a little financial good news to share…
I got a $1,000 raise today!
I had my employee review today and it went very well. We met to discuss my improvements in the last year and the areas they’d love to see me advance in for the next year. I am going to put together a list of tactful employee things I want to accomplish this year and post it on here later.
As for the budget, this will come into effect at the end of this month. I did a little preliminary tax calculations, and it looks like I’ll be getting ~$55 more each month. Nothing extraordinary, but hey–a raise is a raise and I am very thankful. :)
