Credit Score of 620 to 720.

I know it's not that big of a deal and that credit scores suck anyway, are always changing and it's just another way for THE MAN to control us. However, I was able to accomplish this during the height of my depression. I absolutely despise numbers and math, but I stayed up late so many nights reading about debt, credit, finances in general, and planning my budget (planning my attack really, I like how that sounds better). And all on my own, I was able to bring my score up by 100 points in about a year. I've never had a credit score above 705 before and it hasn't seen the 7's in probably 8 years.

The reason this makes me feel good is because it shows me that my hard work can pay off and that is something I didn't think was possible anymore. And because of that, this is a really big deal for me and I feel pretty freaking good about that.

A Wonderful Birthday


A Wonderful Birthday

So the story starts that a young Autistic boy in Minnesota turned 12 today. In the past he's had trouble making friends. So when he would throw birthday parties no one would show up. Well the local country radio station got word and decided to do something about it. They set up a whole birthday party for him at Dave and Busters. They advertised this story on their station and made sure this young man got the greatest birthday he could ever ask for. Here is the link for their Facebook page so you can see the videos and pictures from his birthday last night. I just feel like this is a great place for a story like this.
