2018 was full of some big changes. I did not hit all of the goals I wanted to hit, but that is alright with me, as there was a big change in focus.
The Biggest change of this year because I decided to leave my job and pursue a new venture for me. I have enrolled in Open Cloud Academy and will be pursuing some certificates for System Administration.
Here are my goals from 2018 and how I did in then.
Big Goal: Save Money
This I achieved. I did not save as much money as I would like, but I did save something. I also paid down some debts which
To do this, I Ubered. A Lot. I also set up a waterfall savings plan. The first week I transferred a dollar, then 2, all the way up to 52 dollars. Created quite a little savings account.
Big Goal: Get Outside
This was an easy goal to accomplish. I started the year with a hike at Enchanted Rock. I wanted to hike more but I let the year get away from me.
I did however get to start running again and ran along the San Antonio River on numerous occasions. I feel like that counts as part of the get outside plan.
On the few cons I traveled to. I made it a point to walk places. Especially in Pensacola and Biloxi where I got to walk along the coast line.
Small Goal: Blog More
This started strong. Then fell apart. Then I got back into it at the end of the year.
Small Goal: Make Games
I made another game? Is it good? I don’t know. I like it.
I really just enjoyed making it. And am thinking about another.
Small Goal: Learn More
I did learn a ton in 2018. I completed several different Udemy courses and those have helped put me on the path I am on now.
Where I went in 2018
I didn’t travel as much in 2018. But I did go to two brand new to me places. And that was pretty amazing.
- Enchanted Rock
- New Orleans
I am not doing nearly as much traveling in 2019. I have nothing planned on the horizon outside of a con in Laredo.
I feel an adventure is coming tho.
