4 Tough Lessons I Learned About Money During My First Year Out of College​

Dear Poll: What Was Your Biggest Worry in 2007?

Having a mortgage to pay, managing your career, caring for your family, and staying healthy is a lot to juggle with only 24 hours in a day and seven days in a week. No matter how hard you try, it's impossible to master every aspect of your life. Since we all have stress in our lives, tell me, what was your biggest worry in 2007?

money has always been a worry, but getting a new job has been much more stressful. I know that with a new job the money problem will soon be answered!

School and the whole college admissions process! This one should be self-explanatory... I'm psyched about 2008!

Study! Everything else on that list is positively peachy for me, but my Masters degree gives me hell. I'm now on summer break from study and working a full time job in my field, as well as two other part time jobs, and I'm still no where near as stressed as I am during semester! In fact, I'm relaxed and happy. Bring on graduation! :)

i picked other - my bf had a serious work accident (run over by a huge truck he was working on) and was off work for 3 months requiring pretty serious nursing. it was pretty stressful and i was really worried he would not get back to his old self, but pleased to say he is MUCH better now, although not 100%. must be the great nurse he had (me).

my health was definately put on the back burner this year because money was extremely tight 8/12 months.

A combo of all:NO Man, Poor undergrad, some Health Issues, I think work and money go hand in hand.

Family is always the biggest worry, its also always what makes my whole year suck. My family is a complete mess. Closely followed by my nonexistent love life and my ability to attract douchebags.

I had quite a bit. It's been a terrible year. In March, I suffered my first really bad breakup. In August, I ended my year as a full-time AmeriCorps volunteer and had to find job. I'm currently still living the life of awesome temp. In October, my dad was in the hospital for a week. Because of AmeriCorps/needing a job, money has been tight. I've had to start repaying student loans, which isn't fun. There have been lots of fun times this year, too.

work. trying to find my ideal job or still discovering what i want to do iwth my life has been difficult in trying decide whether to go back to school. not having a sense of direction in my life is frustrating. i feel stuck in a rut and not ambitious enough to get things moving but i hope 2008 will be better for all of u & myself included.
