one of my main goals as an adult is to be well off enough to take care of my parents when they get older so i can provide them w/ a comfortable lifestyle. i want to give back to them as much as they've given me. i have the most supportive and loving parents any girl could ever ask for. i really need to become more responsible with my money now that i'm actually making a good living. i need to learn how to save and invest. i need to stop shopping and spending my money irresponsibly. now that i hopefully have that shopping itch out of my system, i can finally start saving for something worth while, like a house and retirement. i've been so blessed with an amazing job that i really need to take advantage of the opportunities given to me and not take it for granted.
