I have been Married to the same wonderful woman for just over 13 years. We have 2 pretty awesome kids (one girl, and one boy).
I currently work as a locomotive engineer. It is not a terrible job; good pay and good benefits, the challenge that I have with my job is that I am on call 24/7/365. They don't care if it a holiday or my kiddos' birthdays, I have to go to work. Sometimes they even feel that they have the right to refuse to let me take compensated days off.
I have made my first $1. I had someone sign-up and prove that they are an actual human. Now I am going for 3 figures :)
My goals are:
1) To get my bills paid off
2) Get some of the money that my kids will need for college set-up
3) Have a financial fallback
4) When I have a solid footing and steady income... Fire my boss
