Welcome. Discuss your money (or lack thereof) here. So I just checked my tax return thing. I will be receiving like $3300 back on my taxes in June. Was not expecting that much. Pretty sweet. Last week I had a chat with my boss and the HR guy about how unsatisfied I am with my salary. It is well below average and I have been working for them for over a year and I know I perform well. They increased it by $2500 a year. Still not enough, but they said they can't do more because of budget. But they will send me to some courses to develop my skills. Shit, I could have argued my case for those anyway. Oh well. I'll apply to some other places and see if I can get some more leverage. Talked to the house loan lady yesterday. She was not as optimistic as I had hoped about the apartment I want to buy. But we'll see.
