2012 : The Journey Begins !

I shoved off prematurely.  What the heck was I doing?!  I lost my job too early and had no savings to show for it.  But it was time.  I threw all the caution to the wind and went for it!  The plan was to have a job lined up for the summer in Vegas.  But things would get hairy.  My first year as a full-timer would test my financial resilience but also give me glimpses of a certain confidence that I can pull this off.  Here’s how it all started:
