Ding Ding Ding Ding... I win! My Discover bill includes my FICO score and today's bill shows that it had gone up. Google shows that scores range from 300 to 850. My score is now 850!!
I feel like I finally made the honor roll. My school grades were always just above 'get the fuck out of here and go find a life of crime'. My SAT scores were ok but this... this feels better than all.
Is there a MENSA group for 850s????
Back in the olden days, I was horrible with money. I was always in debt and not that good at paying back. My paycheck paid the minimum on credit cards. And, I once abandoned a mortgage altogether. So this little victory is sweet sweet sweet.
Also nice, because I paid for my windows shades and took advantage of a couple of specials, I got $76 in cash back. I have it set up to use that $$ on Amazon. I had $60 worth of stuff in my Amazon cart. I hit 'buy' and the bill was $0.
So, so far, this day has been an excellent one.
Also this morning, I read an informal shortish autobiography. I think I'm going to write up one of those about me. I think I'm going to do it maybe 4 or 5 bits in this journal connected by tags... Maybe. Or write it offline and then save it in one big entry chunk. Maybe.
But first I need to get out of this bed and get dressed and get my day going. The pool opens at 11 and I'll be there for my swim. The rest of the day is so far unscripted.
