Hold the presses — I did it! I actually did it. I opened a savings account. I can now actually say that I am a whopping $500 closer to my end goal: Travel. Bali. The World.
Ok, well, I might be getting a little bit ahead of myself, but I did actually open a savings account. And I did actually transfer $500.
The real question is, how much money am I going to
deprive my current self of set aside for my future travels each month. Which then presents a second question, when do I want my jet-setting adventures to begin?
To answer the second question first, I’d like to leave either July 2013 or January 2014. I don’t know if either of those will happen, but I can at least try, right?
Unfortunately, even to leave in two years (July 2014), I would need to set aside at least $500 a month. I’m not sure I can do that. At least not with my current salary. Something’s gotta change…
6-month bonuses, anyone?
