2013 Goals Review


Happy New Year!  2014 is going really well between seeing “The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug” and catching up with friends and family today.  I also beat Final Fantasy III the other day, just in time to have a seventh game for my video game goal.  Hope everyone elses is off to a great start too!  Since today is the first day of 2014, I decided to go ahead and do my review of 2013 goals and post my 2014 goals officially.   I’ve combined my progress on my December progress with my 2013 to give a good overview of how I fared on my goals.  I think I did pretty well this year and look forward to tackling my new list.

12-Student Loans

I began aggressively paying them off in November and since then have paid over$1300 in principal. I’m pretty proud of myself there, especially since I paid off $705.98 in December alone. When you’re on a modest teaching salary, that’s awesome! At this rate, I have a 5 year off payoff date! 2014 will be my year to make it shorter!


Off my 12 goals, I managed to meet seven of the goals I set. The ones I didn’t meet WERE close.  In 2014, I did reflect on the ones I didn’t meet and modified it based on my results and progress. I hope to cross off everything in 2014 and create a reward of some kind if I meet EVERY goal.
