I filed Federal online for free with H&R Block and State for $25, which was pretty good, although I guess I could have done it with pencil and paper for free. That type of free is only free if you dont value your time at all, because it definitely would have taken me longer to do pen and paper taxes. And Im pretty sure that I would have needed way more time reading directions and all that crap.

Ill be getting a little refund, which, in light of recent events, probably wont go towards anything fun. Im getting more and more concerned with having some kind of cushion, despite (or maybe because of) the financial hardship in which I currently find myself, I intend to build one up. Between that and wanting a motorcycle, I dont have a lot of room for error. Oddly enough, my motorcycle license is the only thing thats not in trouble at the moment.
