Eye Strain and Finances

I think I'm staring at computer screens (or TV screens, or iPod screens) too much. My eyes have been itching and aching for days, and it's not fun at all. I don't like it. I think I probably need new glasses too, and I know I need new prescription sunglasses because I have to squint like crazy to read signs with smaller print.

However, since it's not prohibitive to my life and limb, it's not a priority.

I did, however, finish paying off my car yesterday! Whee! They will send me my title in about 10 days, they said. Now I have to go to the courthouse and get the car put into just my name (if that won't screw up the insurance stuff, must check with that). I'm going to be a chicken and stay on my family's car insurance plan, and work on paying off my credit cards. With mostly minimum payments and only the one job, I can have both cards paid off by April of 2013, which isn't great, but it's better than just lingering in CC debt.

Will probably find out today about how many hours I'll have in the coming weeks, which will pretty much determine how early in March I can move out. Ugh. Work is so chaotic, almost no one knows what's going on at all.

Got to hang out yesterday with a friend I haven't seen since my birthday. It was fun, we spent most of the time just talking and ranting at each other. We tend to agree with each other at the top of our lungs. It's kind of hilarious.

Congrats on paying off the car! That always feels so good. I was pissed I had to buy a new car 4 months after paying off my old one! *laugh* I'll wager having the CC debt gone will feel even better once you get there. Nothing quite like getting rid of debt to make you feel lighter.

Having the car in only your name should not screw up your family insurance so long as you are living with them and under a certain age (I think the cutoff is different depending on the carrier). I'm not sure about after you move though. Fingers crossed! I wasn't allowed on it because of my age. :P

Congrats on paying off the car! It must be liberating to do so. :)
