Introductions

My name is Jessica, I live in Pittsburgh, and I'm 23 years old. I'm a full time college student, work full time, and perform various sexual acts for creditors in my spare time.

I created this blog for three reasons:

I need to completely erase my debt.
I need to regain control of my personal finances.
I need to learn budget, save, and invest.

This is mainly a way for me to track and share my progress. Maybe I'm the only 23 year old who doesn't know anything about savings/investments, but I'm betting not. I've found alot of great blogs on personal finance so hopefully I can share/relay what've I've learned with some of the other "Generation Debt"-ers.

Current financial stats coming soon...

Jessica: Welcome to blog land.

I have to agee with your statement "Maybe I'm the only 23 year old who doesn't know anything about savings/investments, but I'm betting not." Look at all the adds on TV and billboards claiming to help people get their debt under control. I applaud you for having financial goals and making an attempt to reach them. I know when I was your age I had no idea or concern about my financial future.

thanks for your welcome!

I don't know anyone my age who is conscious of their own financial future. Granted, I don't know that many people, and it's possible we haven't gotten around to the subject, but I just don't think we've been educated. There are a few things I felt like my parents should have warned me about when I left home, credit being one of them. I can remember when I started getting 23% APR credit cards, and shortly after collections notices I wasn't really sure what was going on, or even what it meant. I'm going through the learning process now...

Hi, came across your blog on PghBloggers. It's interesting that you are blogging about your financial situation. Maybe you should setup a Pay Pal donation button here or something too lol!

For my finances I have to rely on software such as Microsoft Money. It's the only way I can keep myself straight. It works, believe me!

Anyways welcome to the blogging world!
