2014 Personal Finance Resolutions Review
I seriously cannot believe that it is the end of 2014 already.  This year seemed like it flew by! To be honest, my personal finance resolutions for 2014 weren’t that exciting, but I will review them to see if I was on target or not.  I spent a lot of money this year traveling and […]
Third-Life Crisis Ramblings
Although Wikipedia does not have an entry for a one-third life crisis, they do have a definition for the quarter life crisis.  As I am now in my 30’s (my heart skips a little even as I type that), I think a more apt description would be a third-life crisis, as I do not anticipate […]

When I sat down to start writing on this topic I began to make my jot notes as I usually do for organization purposes (contrary to what you might think when you view the final product, at one point in my writing process there is some thought given to organization).  When I finished jotting things […]
Halfway Point – 2013 Predictions
After realizing that we had passed the halfway point of 2013 I hesitantly clicked back to the predictions I made six short months ago.  Making predictions in a public forum is always a risky venture (unless of course you’re one of the talking heads on TV – in which case the decibel level you make […]
