This month I accomplished two of my 2014 goals so I made this handy dandy list in PowerPoint so I can cross them off as the year goes on.
Now, on to the details!
The mortgage: I took on a temporary responsibility at work, which at first was only supposed to be one additional hour per week, but morphed into an extra seven hours! Thankfully I'm being paid for my time, and that unexpected money went to the mortgage for May, helping us pass the $2k mark. I still plan on putting extra toward the mortgage, just not as much as we have been.
My degree: My projects were graded and I passed, so it's official - I'm finished! (Thank goodness because we already celebrated, haha).
Reading: This month I read a good bit . . 6 books!
I've been reading a lot of fiction lately, and this month was no different. My favorites were:
- Life As We Knew It: A meteor knocks the moon closer to Earth, causing all sorts of problems for Miranda and her family. I'm still thinking about this book and the characters almost a full month after I read it, a rarity for me. I can't wait to get the next installment. :)
- Divergent: I read this because we had plans to see the movie and I wanted to read the book beforehand. We didn't end up seeing the movie, but I throughly enjoyed the book anyway. It's about a futuristic society where people choose a faction that best aligns with their strengths/values to belong to in an effort to maintain a peaceful society. (Of course, if everything was copacetic, there wouldn't be much of a story, right?)
- Roomies: Two girls are assigned to be college roommates so they start emailing each other, which leads to a closer relationship than expected. Reading this book made me wish there were more books about the beginnings of friendships, not just the start of romantic relationships.
How was your April? Read anything good lately?
