Ethical Dilemma, Part 2 and Updates.

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. 


  1. It definitely sounds like you to move on. Wow! You may have to go over your bosses head to get your reimbursements. That is really sad how this has all gone down.

    Good job on floating the travel expenses and paying down th loan so quickly!

    1. Unfortunately, there's no one to really go to to speed up the reimbursement process. He is the senior partner, I can bug the bookkeeper- but she's worse than he is about paying reimbursements.
