A Me Update

I haven’t done one of these posts lately and since I’ve been a bit lax in posting last week I figured it would make sense for me to give an update to my readers. Over the past couple weeks things at work have gotten really busy and some big new projects have landed. Since it’s my job to make sure they’re planned out and resourced I’ve in turn been busy myself. This is going to be the way that it is for the next couple months most likely but the good thing is that its good for the company and I believe I’m going to receive some additional compensation for this.

Other than that because I’ve been so busy at work I haven’t had the opportunity to spend nearly as much money as I normally do on food and going out which means that I’m saving some money (or at least paying down the debt a bit). If I manage to keep this up for the few months before the wedding I think I’ll be in pretty good shape once it comes around. Though I did spend a $100 on a pair of shoes yesterday, I know, extremely expensive but I’ve been having such a hard time finding a decent pair of shoes for a reasonable price that it was simply time to buy a pair. The good thing is I did buy these at one of the cheaper stores; its too bad Payless Shoes around us have been useless when it comes to men’s shoes.

I’ve been busy lately which means I’m going to be taking a slightly different approach to writing for the site, I’m going to take an hour or two when I get home tonight to write a few posts to get a bit ahead of myself so I don’t miss posting days. Not the most glamorous approach but otherwise these posts might end up nothing more than ideas on paper.

Wish me luck with all of this extra work!

  1. Hi Matt,

    I came across your site today and read your goals and other stuff. I must say that the idea is good and its human tendency to achieve something if they have a target and I am glad that you have set yourself a target.

    I am also in a situation very similar to yours.
    I am 26 years old. I have a 12000 car loan for my 2007 civic and have 14000 in savings. My salary is 80000 but does not include any other perks as I work as a Java programming consultant.

    I hope to learn from your experience and your postings. Wishing you reach your goals sooner.
