Where has the time gone?

I swear it was just yesterday since the last time I posted. But no, it’s been so much longer than that! I think the older we get the quicker time seems to pass us by. Then we look back & wonder where it all went. I’ve always thought I’d have more time – for friends, family, love, education, travel, all the experiences that make life worth living. My greatest fear is that when I leave this world, I will leave no significant mark on it. What have I accomplished? Has my being here on this earth made a difference in anyone’s life? Over the last few years, I’ve been volunteering my time on & off to non-profit charities. But has it really made a difference? Have my few contributions changed the world? I don’t think so.

I’ve become so withdrawn in the year and half. Hardly anything holds my interest for long. I used to love to read and scrapbook. And although I do still read, it’s not nearly as much as I used to.

So I’ve decided to make some changes…

This year I applied & was accepted into a Business Administration program at a community college. I’m only 8 courses away from completing an Associates degree. Then I plan to transfer to a university to finish a Bachelor’s degree in Finance & a possible minor in Accounting.

I can’t just sit & wait around any longer. If I want to change my life & help change the lives of others, I need to act now. I’m not getting any younger (not that I’m all that old), but if I don’t force myself to change now, I may never.

On a final note. If there’s anyone who still checks in on this blog. I’m so sorry for not keep up with it. So many things happened in 2009 and I expect 2010 to just has busy. But I will try harder to keep journaling. It may prove to be the best therapy out there & it’s free!

Have a happy rest of your new year.

Site Update

My site was brought down temporarily for a few links that were displayed. I guess the WordPress Gods don’t like certain types of content. I have rectified the situation and removed the content. Hopefully, everything will be fine now. I’ve also updated my side bar with new “My Savings” and “My Debt” information. My Emergency fund had a set-back sometime ago and I’ve just now managed to get it back over my original $1,000 goal. I’ve also started a Car Insurance/Maintenance fund so I can pay my car insurance all at once, which should give me a small discount, rather than paying it monthly. I also plan to first use my cash back credit card to pay for the insurance, and then pay the card off right away so I can get the rewards.

My debt climbed up higher than it was. Mostly due to the fact that my dogs all needed their updated shots and Heartguard and flea/tick medicine. That stuff is very expensive. I think from now on I will get the medicines over the internet through 1-800-PetMeds or another site like it.

It’s been raining here the last few days. I like rain, but can only stand so much of it. Hopefully this weekend will end up drying out. No big plans for now. Father’s Day is on Sunday. I haven’t gotten my dad anything yet. I’m a bad planner when it comes to Father’s Day. My dad always says he doesn’t want or need anything. But no worries, I will come up with something. I hope all of you have a great weekend. If you’re a dad, Happy Father’s Day in advance!!

New Design

I decided to go with a different design for my blog. The other design was so cute, but my blogs kept getting cut-off on the side, making it hard to read – at least in my opinion. So I thought I’d try this one out for awhile. Feel free to let me know what you think.
