  • 2016 Goals and related thoughts

    Another personal post. Ignore if you like, just best to do this stuff publicly since it’s more likely to happen then. I wasn’t in a hurry to get to this after the year started for a few reasons. The main one is that things go a little crazy around all the holidays, and it takes […]

  • 2015 In Review

    It seems like I don’t post these exactly on the new year. I had planned to work on this earlier, but things got in the way, as it goes. Also, I just realized I haven’t posted since my last goals post at the beginning of 2015. Planning to do better this year. Proper warning: This […]

  • 2015 Goals, etc

    It took me longer to get to this than I was expecting. I had some goals written up just a week or so after the last post. It just took me a while to get around to writing up this post. Fair warning to anybody reading this: This type of post is mostly for me […]

  • 2014 In Review

    These posts are probably a little late. I can understand why David Seah does this stuff on Groundhog day. Gives more time to deal with holidays and such. Also, this stuff is mostly for me, so unless you’re curious and a little voyeuristic, you can pass on this one. Anyways, here it goes. Some Thoughts 2014 […]

  • Goals Mini-Update: Feb 8, 2014

    So I’ve decided to do mini-updates weekly (or so), to make me actually do some weekly analysis. This first one is going to be incredibly short, and probably uninteresting for anyone. Sorry about that. Weight: Stalled, but I’ve started using MyFitnessPal to have a better idea of exactly what I’m eating and see if stuff […]

  • New Year’s (or so) Post – 2014 Goals

    Hey everyone, So, as it turns out, I haven’t been using this blog very much. Sorry 🙁 Also, this is a relatively personal post and may contain grammatical errors (I’m tired). Oh man, 2013. Probably the strangest year for me so far. I spun my wheels for a long time trying to make money doing […]

  • The Beginnings of Minimalism

    I am not a minimalist. I’m no hoarder, but I’m certainly not a minimalist. The minimalist’s lifestyle is something I’ve always been tangentially interested in. I look at people who have all of their desktops and counters perfectly clean and beautiful, who spend their days in thought and consideration and I’m a little jealous. I’m […]

  • Reflecting on a Year Without Goals

    It’s been a while since I wrote anything on this blog. I’m feel bad about that, and it’s a food example of my last year. Warning: This is a meandering, unedited post. I started this last year with the expectation of getting quite a bit done since I’d have more free time. I also tried to follow […]

  • Quick Update on the October Challenge – November Challenge Announced

    Hey Internet. Looks like extreme food budgeting during a month were I have to move may have been a bad idea. I couldn’t use my kitchen to any real extent for about two weeks, and as I’m sure you all know, pre-prepared and frozen food while they don’t have to be expensive, aren’t super cheap. […]

  • October Challenge Update – Day 9

    I’m almost a third of the way through my October Challenge, and I’ve so far been fairly successful. Here are the basic numbers: Amount spent: $25.82 Budget so far: $29.03 Difference: -$3.21 Difference in Days: –0.995 The difference in days is assuming that each day is worth $100/31 days, which is about $3.2258 per day.
