One year anniversary at my company

Illustration for article titled One year anniversary at my company

For those of you that followed my career stuff a year ago... That’s kind of a big deal lol. It’s been nice having some consistency for once.

I asked for and received a promotion today. This is still somewhat surreal, as when I initially started, I never imagined I’d have a reason to stay with this company longterm. Now, I can see myself staying five or ten years at minimum, and honestly... That doesn’t depress me in the slightest. I like the job, even with the miserable 16 hour days that pop up every now and again.

On that note, my condo has been a small but steady source of income these past few months. The tenants have been lovely, and maintenance has been nothing more than a (planned) water tank and a replacement fire alarm. I know things won’t always be so smooth, but I still want to continue down that road with another rental property in late 2021. Whether that’s a townhouse or house; local, or 100 miles away, will depend on how much extra savings I can squeeze out of every paycheck. Which means no new bikes, no cars, cashing in my PTO this year and being as frugal as possible. Sorry Ducati, I’ll open up my wallet to you someday :(
