  • Wedding: November 2014

This year my only NY resolution is to be more understanding and less judgemental towards other people and their situations. I was kind of a catty bitch this year.

My New Years Resolution:

1)  To relax more.  I am going to trust in the process of life.  SO and I have discussed marriage and it’s going to happen, but ‘when’ is hard to determine because it’s important for SO to finish school first and I support him in that. 

2)  To SAVE more.  This was my New Year’s resolution last year, and I went from NO savings to having two savings accounts and refinancing my auto.  I’d like to increase both savings accounts this year. 

And that’s it!  Happy New Year!

I don’t like to call them New Years Resolutions because I feel like those were made to be broken. 😛  Instead I have just some personal goals for 2014:

1.) Pay off my car (I know it’ll happen by October by the latest if I just make standard payments)
2.) Pay off my student loans (this one’s going to be a BIG challenge, but I’m going into the year with less than 1/3 of it left)
3.) Get my own place downtown (should happen if I’m good with saving money)
4.) Keep up with using my budget spreadsheet
5.) Find a new job downtown
6.) Dive head-first into my weight-training program
7.) Eat better
8.) Do a better job of sticking to my lunch pact (bringing lunch Mon-Thurs and only eating out on Fri)
9.) Spend less & save more (this builds on my fulfilling this year’s goal of starting a TFSA, RSP, savings fund, and maxing out my employer contribution-matching program)

So lots of money-related goals. 😛  But it’s a means to an end.  I don’t want to bring any debt into my marriage and I want to save money for our wedding…or at least a platinum wedding band for my SO.
