Why did you start blogging?
I have been lurking around reading PF blogs for quite a while now. I was just so tired of my excuses why I havent paid my debt, when everyone else has done quite well writing about their debt payoffs. I figured this will make me feel more accountable about my debt - even though I am still anonymous.
Has it turned out how you expected?
Yes actually! So far, I was able to pay down almost $5k towards my debt. That's quite a lot knowing that I only paid $3800 the previous year.
What has been your favorite blog post you have written so far?
So far its the first post - you can read here. I just feel like thats when I really took this seriously after really looking into my balances
How did you decide on the name of your blog?
Honestly, I could not think of a very witty name for a blog. I have had the nickname Ciel for a while though.

Earliest money memory?
I am sure I had something earlier than this since I did get an allowance when I was a kid, but I really thought I made it when my dad took me to Bank of America to open my first account and became their slave - half kidding! I never really had any issues with them and I have worked in different banks and still kept them as my main bank
I would like to nominate these lovely gals
