so i teach credit to my clients. credit scores, credit reports, what it all means. yet i’m not very connected to it because i don’t really understand it. i can just read off of a powerpoint.
but today, my new credit card came in the mail AND along came another letter about my credit. they ran a credit report to see if i could open up that credit card. and at the bottom of that one-pager listed my credit score.
i actually have credit! i have a credit score and googling it shows that i have a “very good” credit score. how surprising. who would have thunk it. i’ve had my first credit card since 2008. 5 years later and bam. my supervisor told me the other day that “there is no reason why you can’t get a house at 26.” well i can think of one -___- but any who, what a neat revelation.
