Net Worth Update: August 2010

August has been hot, hot, hot! Weather wise, certainly, but I also made it worse by making a (work-related) trip to Miami in the middle! Let’s see if my finances  had a similar toasty trend:

Change: $2,070 or +6.77 %

August 2010 Net Worth GraphIndeed, it was a good month! However, it also represents my last month of steady employment. (My employer moved out of state and I remain in Virginia.) The money I made in all those nice upward-sloping months on this graph needs to last me through my job search. Which means that September will almost certainly be a “down” month, as little income comes in, and I still pay bills including my student loans, car insurance, etc..

Still, I’m quite optimistic – although September will be a “down” month on the graph, it’s not a surprise and it’s something I planned for. Just like when I graduated and knew I’d have to draw on my Getting Established fund for a while.

Everyone think good thoughts for me while I do interviews for new jobs! 🙂

    Very interesting chart. I’m scared to chart my net worth! Hopefully things will turn around soon.

    I’m pretty sure if I did a chart like this a few years ago. It would be under the x axis. Haha.

    Stumbled on your blog this afternoon – very good information. Are you sure you’re not a professional? If my company had funds, I’d hire you – good luck with your interviews!
