It’s already the first of December (wow) and we’re down to only 30 more days of 2013 after today. This year has flown by and it’s been a year of a lot of growth and change. I’ve been progressing on my goals throughout the year and I’m ready to get started on my next list of goals for 2014 (already have a rough draft). I’m definitely excited to start focusing more on paying off my student loans. Though, I have felt that lately I’ve been thinking too much about my student loans. Hopefully it gets better as they get lower. I did pay $325 on my principal. It seems low, but my other bill didn’t get processed until today, so it should be another $200 higher. Oh well, next month will see a bigger decrease.
I made decent progress on my goals in November, but I have a lot of work to do in December if I hope to complete them. I’m also debating if I should have a ‘penalty’ for not finishing them, but I can’t think of anything reasonable. Just not getting them done will be enough.
