Before I am moving out: Chapter 10

I’m having a financial setback

Hello everyone,

Welcome back to another blog post. As you can read from the title, this is not going to be an exciting post. I guess my financial journey won’t be great all the time.

As you can read from the title I’m currently facing a financial setback because I failed my driving test again. At this point, I don’t know what to feel anymore. Them letting me fail my exam was so not fair.

Anyways, now that I failed my test again I have to continue paying for my lessons. I ran out of the money I had saved for my lessons. So I had to pull money from my moving out fund. In June my emergency fund will be fully funded. So the money that was going to my emergency fund, will be going towards my driving lessons. This means that I will have to put my moving-out fund on hold until I get my driver’s license.

This situation really sucks. I signed up for an apartment. If they decide to give me the apartment, I don’t know what to do. I mean, I have been waiting for so long already. But on the other hand, I don’t want to be stressing about the money for my driving lessons. I don’t want to be in a situation where I have to quit my lessons.

Now that I am experiencing this financial setback, I don’t know if I will reach my €25K networth goal this year. I don’t know if I will be able to save €10K in my moving out fund this year. And I probably will not be able to start saving for the costs of buying a house this year.

I guess this year is really only going to be about my driver’s license and then next year I can focus on moving out.

What I hate about this situation the most is how much it is controlling my life. My life currently revolves around my driving lessons. Now I have to choose my office days based on the days I have my driver’s lessons. If I want to go to the gym, it has to be after my driver’s lessons. I just want my hours back and plan my life like I want to.

Even though I am not happy with my current financial situation. I’m blessed that I am still living at home and I can pull money from my savings. If I lived on my own there was the chance that I would have to quit driving.

I am sharing this with you guys to let you know that it’s ok to have setbacks in your financial journey. To be honest, I actually feel a little bit better now that I have shared this.

This is all I have for today. Thank you for your precious time and until next time!
