Friday Roundup: Savings, Summer, and Your Money

by Kristina on August 17, 2012 · 5 comments

Good Morning Dinks and Happy Friday. Congratulations to DC @ Young Adult Money who is our book giveaway winner.   DC contact us by email and we will mail out your book asap.  Be sure to keep reading Dinks Finance over the next few weeks for some other great product giveaways from friends that we met at BlogHer.

I had a very busy week and I am glad to say that I have absolutely no plans this weekend, except to sleep a lot and to go and see the new movie in the Borne series.  This week I had to give an oral presentation in my Industry Standard Editing Practices class and I also had to complete my employee evaluation since the third fiscal quarter finished at the end of July.

I am not sure if I mentioned this before but I returned to school to study Journalism.  It has been almost five years since I last went to school and let me tell you that college life has a whole new meaning now that I am in my thirties.  I absolutely enjoy studying Journalism but working full time and studying is a lot more difficult the second time around.  However I am sure that it will all be worth it in the end.

What are your plans this weekend?

I hope you all enjoy your two days off, I know that I will.  Enjoy these great posts from around the web:

Hey Christina,

I was wondering if you’ve spent any time looking at Joshua Kennon’s stuff on wealth building?

You might find it of interest…

Thanks for mentioning Adaptu!

Yeah!!! Thanks for putting on the giveaway. Just sent an email to the main DINKS email mentioned on the comments page.

I’m impressed you are going back to school. You just talked about how you have a third job on Sundays (in addition to your full-time job and blogging)…I don’t know how you do it.

Best of luck on the presentation.

Wow, back to school in thirties? I don’t know how you can do it. Ugh, I’m just doing much of the same this weekend, sleep, clean, do some grocery shopping. Sad indeed.

@ James – No I haven’t but I will check it out! Thanks for the link.

@DC – Congrats on winning the book. Send us an email and we will mail it out asap.

@Jenna – Are we going to be seeing you at FinCon?

@Veronica – It is such a different experience this time around. I am only doing it because I want to change careers and become a full time writer/author. However my busy schedule leaves very little time for studying.
