I’m a 20-something college graduate trying to make my way in the world. I eat enthusiastically, read voraciously, budget inconsistently, love stubbornly, tango apasionadamente, and blog frequently. I love Virginia Woolf, Grandmama’s ring and my “tween” car (age 12), even when it gives me trouble.

My goal is to save as much as I can (prepare for the future) while enjoying life (carpe diem!), because the days may be long, but life is short. My mottos? “Personal finance shouldn’t make me miserable” and “experience, not stuff.” My loftier goal is to “achieve financial independence." And of course, I think personal finance is sexy. I don’t carry a balance on my credit card. I enjoy dining out, shopping, Argentine tango and traveling (and other little luxuries) -– all of which takes $$$. Even though my finances are OK, sometimes I wonder how am I going to save enough to fund my retirement.

As I try to build a solid financial foundation, I’m also “navigating the quarterlife,” which is a fancy way of saying I’m trying to figure out all the things (career, love, identity, purpose, etc.) that 20-somethings try to figure out. In short, I have my work cut out for me.
