After living for a good 23 years, this is the first time I see a 5-digit in my net worth :)

Honestly, I’m not sure where this sum stands among my peers because I have friends around my age (or even younger) who have above $50,000 savings already, and I have friends who started working a few months earlier but lives from pay check to pay check with less than $800 of savings. But then again, to be fair, I probably have lesser commitment than them, and everyone lives their lives differently.

I have to admit that I could have achieve this goal earlier if not for the impulsed shopping spree during the GSS, and if I didn’t take a one-month “career break” in August before I started working again in another company. (I think the career break was worth it though :P)…
