Half Way

So we are coming up on the half way mark of the year.  So far, so good.  I reviewd the goals that I laid out for the year and I am pretty satified that I am still meeting them.

Goal 1: I’m still exercising and trying to eat healthy.  I’ve lost a few pounds, but not as much as I should.

Goal 2:  Still saving for the car.  Should have a good chunk by the end of the year.  So far my car hasn’t been giving me nearly as much trouble as it did last year.  Less money for repairs, means more for saving.

Goal 3:  I’ve applied to school, but no word on whether or not I am accepted.

Goal 4:  Still saving to boost my emergency fund.

Goal 5:  Definitly buying less stuff and using up what I have, instead of buying unnecessary things.

Goal 6:  Opened a retirement account and I am making automatic payments to it.

Everything looks good so far.  It helps that there are no major setbacks that have derailed me, like last year with the surgery, or the year before when I took a pay cut.  Really what I am beginning to remember is that slow and steady steps are what get you the best and LASTING results. I just have to keep chipping away at the proverbial “rock” and eventually I will get what I want.

On another note, I did create this page to put up my fiction stories.  I haven’t forgotten that original idea and I do intend to put some up.  That was partially why I changed the theme.  I guess I know how I will be spending my Memorial Holiday.
