Something new...

So I finally got a blog to mark the unimportant and borderline boring aspects of my life. I really hope this doesn't get too boring, though right now my life isn't too exciting. I work as a teacher of eighteen month olds at a Christian academy. It's a lot of hard work but the kids are pretty awesome. I have a few goals that I want to accomplish before this new year comes...which is coming up so fast. I can't believe it's already August 23rd! I am happy that summer is finally coming to a close. It's been way too hot these couple months. Anyway, a few things I'd like to happen before 2010...
  • Get out of debt...only 1471.86 to go from 4503.76. Incredible.
  • Not miss a day of work. Not that I will after 2010 ;).
  • Start exercising and eating healthier.
  • Along those lines...eliminating soda and fast food.
  • Continue to work on practicing my religion and tithing. I've been slacking.
I'm sure there's more but I don't want the list to be too overwhelming. It's amazing to see how much I owe on the credit cards. Granted it's been a year, but I think it's crazy I've been able to pay 3032.90 while being in and out of work while doing so. I want to be out of debt before December. I'm going to be frugal with Christmas presents this year. I need to start saving for emergencies and investing in my future.
