Bullet introduction:  28 years old.  Recently engaged.  Full-time medical technician. Greater Toronto area (Canada).

Why I blog?  Mainly, because it keeps me accountable.  I’ve been blogging on and off for years now and along with reading other blogs, blogging has inspired me to get out of debt and helped shape my financial outlook.  And not just on the financial aspect of life, but a few blogs I’ve come across have motivated me to a better, more successful person.

What I bring to this blog?  My journey through life, focusing mostly on the financial aspect since this is a blog on personal finance.

2010:  Graduated from university.  $28000 in student loan debt.

2012:  Started blogging.  Personal finance blogs have helped inspire me to accelerate student loan payments.  This was also when I became obsessed with budgets and spreadsheets.

2013:  Paid off my student loan debt.

2014:  Finally had a positive net worth.

2016:  I got engaged in October and transitioned to a new financial path:  joint budgeting.

2017:  Joint budget and a wedding to plan for.

I’ve come a long way with my finances… there’s been a lot of ups and downs; and I hope my financial journey can relate to you in the same way other personal blogs have spoken to me.

Thank you for reading 🙂
