Master Plan 2017 Edition

Truth be told, not much has changed from last year's goals.
Last year, I finally managed to finish paying off my car which allowed me to finally travel again. I want to do a lot more of that this year as well as go to more concerts. I want to focus on experiences rather than material possessions.
I want to continue building on the healthy habits I created last year.
Some things haven't changed in a while more than goals, they are habits.
  • Write more
  • Be more active
  • Read more
  • Eat more veggies
I still need to figure out the whole house purchase situation. House prices have skyrocketed again and that has put a serious hold on that goal.
But in the being an adult realm, I still need to open the IRA and start investing.

Finally, since I now have a computer, it might be the time (FINALLY) to start the podcast!

Farewell 2016

Let's start at the beginning: Good Riddance 2016!
There isn't really much that is good to say about 2016. It was mostly a bad year. It seems like nothing really materialized as far as goals and expectations.
I managed to have breakfast about 98% of the year and that is a huge accomplishment for someone who used to pride herself on not needing to eat breakfast.
I decided it was time to go back to the gym even if it was at the end of the year and then boom! I get the worst flu ever and the gym stops. I hope I am back to healthy quickly so I can get back on that.
I traveled again! It was such a thrill! I had definitely missed those days of wondering around a new city and eating new foods. I missed that moment of just enjoying the view and being thankful.

I definitely should have worked harder. I thought I was, but clearly I wasn't. I hope to have learned a lesson from that and make next year the year where I actually get things done. 

Farewell 2016! Here is to 2017 being the year where I finally live for the moments that can't be put into words.
