Apparently didn’t make it a goal, but should have…namely my bedroom painting “epic” is finally over! I started painting my master bedroom in October, and only finished this month, finally. Lots of personal reasons behind it, but glad to finally have the project done. I learned never start a project […]
Big financial goals and the biggest of the house tasks are now done! Also knocked off a few smaller ones and made some nice progress on others. A good, if expensive, start to the year. I’m experimenting with using Habitica, a gamification app, to help me track some of my goals along with […]
It’s that time again, time to set my goals for the year. I prefer goals to “resolutions” as goals, done right, are actually specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and time-based (i.e. SMART). I’m also trying to improve upon last year’s number of failures with regards to my evaluations of what “achievable” […]

Final two financial goals taken care of, very little progress otherwise.
October has been, without a doubt, one of the hardest months of my life, and one I have still not recovered from. Most of my goals and plans were completely derailed, with just a few exceptions for busy work and mindless stuff that have helped me get through these last […]
One of my goals for this year was to get through some of my console video game back log. Since July, I’ve been working my way through my second game Genji: Days of the Blade, the 2006 PlayStation 3 sequel to Genji: Dawn of the Samurai which came out on […]
This weekend, while on a mini-vacation with my sweetie, I got my first chance to ever touch, handle, and shoot an actual gun. Wee!
One more big financial goal done with student loans finally past the next big milestone 🙂 Also cancelled/postponed a few goals around the roof in lieu of tarping the leaking areas and stopping the water getting in, hopefully buying me another year or two before I have to deal with replacing […]
