Hi, I’m Kamika!
If I had to quickly sum myself up I would say that I’m a financial aid counselor, blogger, and freelance writer. I’m also a wife, daughter, and sister. I’m not a mother yet, but maybe in the future.
I enjoy reading, spending time with my family, and laying on the beach. Binge watching shows on Hulu and Netflix makes me happy as well.
Some people may say that I’m obsessed with finances. Creating a budget and using a spreadsheet is fun to me. I becoming interesting in finances when I added up the amount of student loan debt that my husband and I had accumulated during college. It was more than $120k!
On top of the student loan debt, we now have medical bills. Needless to say, we are on a debt free journey. It may be weird, but I love the feeling of paying bills each month. I know I will enjoy my money more when most of the bills are gone, but for now, I am enjoying the ride.
I work a full-time job as a financial aid counselor, but I don’t plan to do this for the rest of my life. In the future, I plan to teach online classes to help others take control of their finances.
I’m not sure how or when I will begin my teaching journey, but that is my goal. I don’t think I was made for the 9-5 life. The faster I can get out of debt and start my classes, the better.
Fun Facts About Me:
- I played clarinet in a marching band with 450 members for one year.
- I became a member of the color guard for the marching band for three years.
- Secretly, I always wanted to be a dancer and cheerleader, but I never tried out.
- I have never been out of the country, but I plan to travel in the future.
- True crime is so interesting to me and I watch Investigation Discovery every chance that I get.
- I have more duffle bags and backpacks than I care to admit.
I’m not very interesting at all! Enough about me, let’s talk about the blog. I started this blog as a way to vent and track my debt free journey, but the tables have turned.
I have realized that I love to write and help others, so I am focusing on living a balanced life these days. This is now a lifestyle blog that covers a wide variety of topics.
I also realized that there is money to be made from a blog so I plan to figure that out and use the money to pay down debt and move forward with my next endeavor.
