So 2009 has finally gone, what an interesting year it was; property boom, economy crisis, refugee problems, bushfire and etc. I dont think 2009 was a great year to be honest, it wasn't that great for me either.
I think the most interesting that happened to me was I purchased a home and land package and the construction is going to begin in a few weeks time and my house will be completed in around August/September. I know I have said this many times on my blog, but I am BROKE... and 'BROKER' after the boxing day sale and Matt's birthday. Sigh... I really should remind myself to stop spending and start saving for all the furniture needed for my house when it is ready.
I realised I didnt make any new year's resolutions last year and I did feel a bit empty after knowing that, I felt like I havent achieved anything? Then I realised I did plan to buy an investment property in 12-18 months in Aug 2008. I guess I achieved something then?
I want to set some goals for myself in 2010 but I am afraid that I may not achieve them. No harm listing them down I guess :p
- Lose another 5kg (seems like this is forever in my todo list for the new year haha)
- Furnish and move into MY house
- Help my parents to migrate to Perth so I dont have to fly to Malaysia every year
- Fight for a pay rise
- Declutter and stop buying unnecessary stuff!
- Have 5k in emergency fund by Dec 2010
- Manage to sew a dress all by myself!
well, I guess thats enough for now. I think the 5k in emergency fund a bit unrealistic seeing that I will need to spend a lot of money in the new house, putting security screen & door, skirting board, alarm system, retic, land scaping.
Anyway, happy new year!
