Welcoming 2010

Well, it is 2010. Welcome.

I thought I would write down a couple goals for the next year.

  • Gain 23 Pounds – Really my goal is to eat better and exercise, but that sounds boring. To put it more entertaining and challenging, I want to get to 200 pounds. As of about 20 minutes ago, that means 23 pounds. I actually started this about two months ago and will be hard to reach.
  • Add 126.3158% to Net Worth – This is actually a significant milestone. Buying a car might get in the way of this.
  • Do Not Buy a House – I have gone through two house hunting episodes now. I have decided I do not want to be tied down that much, so I will not be buying a house this year.

That will be enough for today. Any thoughts?

    So, 23 pounds of fat or muscle? I’m guessing you’ll take whatever you can get…

    Since the goal is to eat better and exercise, I am guessing muscle will work better. Then again, I will take either.

    126.3158% is an interesting number to pick.

    Housing prices might bottom out this year, or they might keep sliding until next year, according to the people who are supposed to think about such things.

    And Dustin’s still updating his site even though he’s employed again. Will wonders never cease? Are you still on Drew’s server?

    @James

    The real goal is to hit the milestone behind 126.3158%. I do not really want to publish what that milestone is to the entire world.

    I am not pulling out of the housing market because of cost. Clark County has seen some very nice deals lately – per my research. Rather, I do not want to lock myself in geographically.

    I am going to attempt to post more. Two years ago, my goal was four posts per week. That, obviously, did not work. I am trying two per week instead or eight to 10 per month. We will see how well I do going forward – again.

    No longer on Drew’s server. I migrated mail and hosting all at once few months back. I now have ‘professional’ services helping me for about the same price.
