So here's the update to the ethical dilemma. I have again started applying for jobs- I have applied for 2 so far and I hope to apply to at least 1 more this weekend. I'm probably only really qualified for one of the jobs, but I plan to just apply for anything and everything at this point. I'm ready to leave this firm and a raise wouldn't hurt! Here's hoping that I get interviews for any of these positions and then, ultimately, a job offer (for more money)!
It doesn't hurt that my boss and I are not getting along right now. He tried to bring the partner from the central/south Florida office into the disagreement, but she sided with me. I can't stand all this drama and he (my boss) is very dramatic. He has yet to address it directly with me.
On to the updates. I earned $1.71 on my savings account last month! I have earned $4.65 so far this year. I have a total of $2,807.37 in the account. I know that's not much, but I would rather be earning something rather than nothing. I've already earned more than half of what I earned last year!
With regard to debt- Student loan A is at $19,587.89 and Student loan B is at $1,555.17. Student loan B should be paid off in 12 days! Gosh darnit, I am going to pay off that loan no matter what. Well, at least I hope so. I really, really want to pay that loan off. As of January of this year I owed $3695.56 on Student loan B. I have paid off $2,140.39 cents so far this year. That only averages $713.46 a month. Arghhh!!
Lastly, still no travel reimbursements yet. I have spent over $900 on travel (For February and March) and I have yet to see a dime back from the firm. This still bothers me. I have a few more trips for April and I doubt I will get paid before May. I also will need a oil change in a few weeks. I need the reimbursements to pay down on my student loans, replacement the money I used from my dental fund, replenish my travel fund and get my oil change on my vehicle.
