Good Bye 2017!

December 31st, 2017 at 07:24 pm

It was a long year that I am glad to be over with. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good. Just lots of stuff. Lots of time-consuming stuff.

However, I am ending on a positive note financially! I calculate my net worth by adding all my cash accounts and debt. I do not watch my 401k enough to follow it yet, so that is excluded. I also do not have any assets as I lease a car and live with my parents. I started the year with a net worth of -$278, and I am ending with only -$693! This is despite lawyer fees for my divorce, unemployment, taking on student loans, and a family loan out (that they have officially paid back!)! I am very proud of myself considering my worst month I was at -$29,684. Woah! Go me!

My 2018 goals are still conflicted. There will be some mix of paying off debt and saving. I just don't know what yet.

In all honesty, I am just too tired to think of goals and am fighting off one hell of a cold that has given my family pneumonia and bronchitis. I am crossing my fingers it doesn't come to that for me. My work time has taken a LARGE hit due to all the sickness, and hopefully, my coworkers will continue to be understanding. As a consultant, it is a hard thing to balance. I am going to have to figure out how to balance work-home life in 2018 as it is not working out as well as I had hoped.
