A Look Back At My Goals for 2008

Back in February, I made a post titled 10 Unusual Goals for 2008. The post contained ten things that I wanted to accomplish this year. After looking back at it, I wanted to make some updates and cross some things off.

So here they are:

Blog My Life

This is my favorite goal on the list, and I can honestly say I have succeeded at it.

Be On a Television Show

This isn’t something I really care about anymore, but I did manage to get on a reality television show here in Phoenix.

Act In A Movie

At this point in life, I am not real concerned about acting in a movie. It would be great, but it can wait. Therefore it’s getting crossed off.

Make Boatloads Of Money

In the beginning of the year, I wanted nothing more than to make tons of money. However, I have since realized that money is not what I am after. I even made a list of things that make me happy besides money. Therefore, this goal is gone, poof.

Grow My Hair Back

If you haven’t noticed from my pictures, my hair is officially back!

Travel, Travel, and yes, Travel

This, along with blogging, is my second favorite goal on the list. Luckily, I have had the opportunity to travel a lot in the last few months.  The road trip to California alone was a ton of traveling and I hope to do more in the future.

Go On A Date With A Celebrity

I am not sure why this made the list, but I really have better things to do than date a celebrity. Plus I am already dating someone. Therefore, this is getting crossed off the list as well.

Take More Pictures

Ever since I renewed my Pro Flickr account and started traveling, I have been taking a ton of pictures. Now that I found a way to incorporate them into this site, I have no problems sticking to this goal.

What’s Left To Do?

After crossing off all the goals I accomplished or no longer want to do, it leaves me with a few others. The first two are from the original list:

Give More Back

I wanted to give back to the world, and I still feel this way. Unfortunately, I have not done the best job at doing this. Therefore it is staying on the list.

Work For Myself (In Progress)

One of the things I really wanted to accomplish this year, was working for myself. Unfortunately, I am still working the shitty office job I was then. However, I have managed to freelance with a few companies and helped setup some blogs. So it is a work in progress.

Sell My Car

I have been taking the bus for a long time now and no longer need my car. If your interested in a 2005 Chevy Cobalt SS, check it out on Autotrader.

Be 100% Debt Free

I have managed to get a lot closer to being where I want to be. I have managed to pay off all my credit cards and bills, leaving my vehicle, which I hope to sell, and my student loan. I am 100% positive I can be completely debt free by the end of the year if I continue to work at it.

So there you have it, an update on what I hope to accomplish by the end of 2008.

    Good luck on your new goals. I’m nearly debt-free and feel like a sucker for it now with all the bailouts, I should’ve just gone into massive debt so big that I couldn’t be allowed to fail.


    Seriously, getting out from debt feels damn good and it’s wicked liberating knowing you have one less bill to worry about.
