2022 Goals: Progress Check

The last quarter ended up with a lot of failures because the bathroom cost more than planned and I had to run up some debt on it, and with this final quarter of my life being a lot of bad crap happening, things went fell by the wayside.  But not beating myself up on it… just gotta pivot for 2023, as my life undergoes unexpected changes.


These are goals revolving around anything related to my personal finances.

  1. No new credit card debtFAILED as I had to float some of the house stuff to be sure I had enough cash on hand to make the builder payments
  2. Calm my tits on Twitch giving to no more than $100 a month in bits/subs/tips/donations, plus 2 6 mth subscriptions – FAILED I am apparently incapable of self-control in this regard…
  3. Drainage loan balance to $3,500 or less
