2012 Goals: Financial & Personal

Goals, goals, goals! New year = new me right? I don't plan to change much this year since I think I have been on the right track. I really appreciate everyone's comments and support throughout this blog. I have met some amazing people and now read a great mix of blogs. Here's to another successful year for us all!

Now onto some goals....

2012 Financial Goals

1. Max out Roth IRA.
2. $3,000 in Travel Fund.
3. Buy an investment property with 20-25% down.
4. Rent out investment property so monthly rent covers monthly mortgage.
5. Vacation in cash.
6. Open up some sort of interest savings accounts or investment accounts for my little brother & sister.

2012 Personal Goals

1. Get healthy. This means getting back into gym mode, running outside, walking my dog more often, eating healthy, less soda, less fast food, cook at home more, and eat less candy.
2. Get into law school. Whether it's this cycle or next cycle, 2012 will be the year I get this accomplished!
3. Go home as much as possible. I love my family and I hate living 8 hours away, but it's only a 1 hour plane ride away.
4. Go on a vacation with the BF. We've been together for over 6 years now and we haven't really gone on a real vacation. We are very close but whether it's a weekend getaway or a real vacay, I think it would be nice to  go on one for ourselves this year. We both work too much so I think we deserve it. But knowing us, it probably won't happen this year.
5. Read more. I didn't get to read as much this year but I just got back into reading again. I read fiction mostly because I like to get away when I read. This year, I'll be making more trips to the library.

Any other goals you'd like to share?

good luck! I have a lot of goals but ones I can think of off the of my head was to save 2500 for a travel fund as well as 1500 for my e-fund. And since Rambo is going to be buying a house, I'm thinking a house decor fund might come in nicely. :)

You guys need to go on vacation! You deserve it. Me and the BF hardly went on any vacation before last summer (we've been together for almost 6 years), and it was super depressing. Last summer we went on a ton though, and we already have 4 that we are planning for this year.

Vacations are good!

I have thought about buying an investment property but we need to get our house built first. Good luck!

Awesome goals and I completely get the not changing much this year because you feel like you are on the right path. That's how I felt.

It's going to be awesome watching you accomplish these.

Study more. I didn't get to learn as much this season but I just got returning into studying again. I just read stories mostly because I like to get away when I just read. This season, I'll be creating more visits to the collection.

My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on several websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
I have heard great things about blogengine.net.
Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts
into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
