Over the weekend I completed my move to a new place. I'm not going to go into reasons why, but just know that it went well with the help of some amazing friends. I'm about 2 minutes from my previous location, and it's not too bad so far. Personal finance is one of the things I promised myself I'd focus on this year, and this move is definitely going to force my hand as far as making and sticking to a budget goes. That's just scratching the surface of what I want to get a handle on.

Right now, though, I'm waiting to get my first month in the new place complete so I can get an idea of what the bills will look like from month to month. I no longer have fiber internet and I'm back with Xfinity, but it seems their new gateway + my rebuilt machine with WI-FI 6 will be enough such that I won't have to string network cables all over the place. Tomorrow will be the first stream to test that out.

More fun ahead! Stick around.


It's been a while since I've posted, and honestly it's because life has been a series of curveballs lately, and I'm finally getting a chance to come up for air. I'm hoping I can return to a weekly post schedule, but we'll see. Things are going to continue to get interesting in the coming weeks, and it's looking like a move is in my future, so I'm trying to prep for that, too.


At first glance, my handle: 'Xanny' would seem to be a drug reference, slang for Xanax. Most people don't seem to think anything of it, but those that do make a big stink out of it for some reason. It's weird. The name just kinda came to me, and I had zero clue of the slang term that it was. But, I digress.

I've had this name for the past 14 years or so, and with it I've gone through a slew of domain names. It finally occurred to me, though, that I should just get a domain name that matches my other social media (Twitter, mostly. I'm not using Instagram much anymore), and thus justxanny.com was born. All of my other domains, with the exception of the domain I use for my email, will be set to redirect here and allowed to expire. As I work on moving in here at Write.as, I'll work on going through old posts and getting them set up here too.
