I got a sweet MacBook Pro with some of my eBay earnings. I'm also squared up with some money I owed the bicycle shop. The laptop is a few years old, and thus was a reasonably priced acquisition. ($533).
Don't worry about The Van-Land Savings Plan: I'm still fully on track with that, and I can pay rent, too.
I'll take this opportunity to underscore how this seems to be a happy time in my life, and I am excited about all the new developments and possibilities.
