Ok so remember that rather large (to me) sum that I gifted to this friend of mine? So I been feeling the pressure on that lately.
That money was originally saved up to go to my Roth IRA that I like to max contribute at the beginning of every year. Clearly that isn't going to happen this year.
However, that money also doubles as my short term emergency savings buffer I guess. The rest are currently "locked up" in some short term trading positions that I don't want to sell unless it absolutely can't be helped.
I am still OK though, since my credit card can pick up the slack, although I don't like the idea of not being able to pay off my credit cards immediately.
However, I think I can get a grip on all this soon.
On the bright side, this friend in question does seem to be a bit cheerier so that's good.
