First Week of Having a Salary

My first paycheck, which consisted of one week’s salary, was direct-deposited into our checking account. Thankfully, my withholdings were corrected, and only 20% was taken out.

I netted $1570.76.

It’s still a little amazing to me how much I make. For the past several years, when I was in school, I knew how much I would be earning post-graduation, but it’s just so different to actually see that money.

We’re still set to close on our home in a few short weeks, so all of our money is going to that. Soon, though, we’ll have to start deciding what to do with all of our new income.
