I’ve been working a lot lately. I’ve been working so much that it feels a lot like the fourteen months I spent working an absurd amount of time so I could pay off $48,000 of student loan debt. I’m working that many hours again, except this time, instead of paying off debt, I’m just not... Read more The post Adventures in Unpaid Labor appeared first on Amanda Page. ...

For years, I was in the habit of listing our my monthly expenses, but instead of listing them out once a month, I’d make that list two or three times a day. I’d also list out all the income I anticipated receiving through various streams. I did this a lot, as a way to see... Read more The post I’ve Stopped Making Lists appeared first on Amanda Page. ...

Many mornings, I sit on my sofa, laptop on my lap, dogs squeezed in at my sides, and I search the internet for possible futures. I like to think I’m being strategic, looking for the move that will level up my career. I look at one year MBAs and PhDs in everything from cultural policy...

Many fine and knowledgable personal finance bloggers extoll the virtues of tracking of your net worth. Some do it monthly. Some do it quarterly. But, they do it, and it seems to be an important piece of their financial lives. For the last year, on the fifteenth of every month, I’ve logged into various checking,...

Columbus, Ohio is a comics kind of town. The city is home to a thriving comics art community, as well as a world-class comics art library and several renowned comics art events. Belt Publishing and The Ohio State University Press would very much like to showcase comics art about Columbus and/or by local comic artists...

I’ve been blogging for almost three years now. For the first 14 months, I blogged with real focus and efficiency. I knew my purpose: pay off debt and pursue my dreams. Even after paying the debt, I continued to blog, because I was still pursuing my dreams. In 2.5 years, I did both. I mean,...

If someone told me in December 2014 that this would be my life in August 2017, I would have laughed in their face. In December 2014, I was a struggling adjunct instructor. I was working between three different schools. I was bankrupt, and I still had $48,000 of student loan debt to pay off. I...
