Thought I’d take a few moment to reflect back on the year 2007.

There has been ups and downs like my grandma passing away and staying in a really crappy apartment for 8 months but I’ve accomplished two things. One was getting the job transfer from DC to CA to work as a webmaster for Google. Definitely one of my proud moments in life. Second one was paying all the debts I have including the car, credit cards, and student loan. I’m 100% debt-free. From now on, I’m not gonna put myself in a debt. I’m going to pay any new/used car in full and plan to buy a used road bike from Craigslist and use it to commute to work. Except for the possible mortgage loan in the future, of course.

Last year, I mentioned that my goal is to blog everyday . While it didn’t quite happen like that, I’ve made a lot of progress with my blog and been finding topics that serve both myself and you. I’m definitely going to blog even more this next year and bring useful, interesting information to us.

In 2008, I’m gonna try to focus more on getting things done. It’s been a big weakness of mine and I want to work out more often and consistently and be in a better shape. Maybe I’ll compete in a triathlon later on. I want to do a lot of snowboarding this season. Another goal is to go out more, meet new different people and build my resources.

With that said, 2008 is going to be a great year!

    Sounds like you had an eventful year. The Google transfer is definitely a big step in your career (congrats on that, BTW), and I’m glad to hear that you’re paying closer attention to your finances. It’s ridiculous how many people allow that to fall down their priority stacks. It’s a poor choice/decision that almost always comes back to haunt you.

    Thanks, Chris. Yeah, looks like every year is going to be eventful, ha. People need to be educated more about personal finance and investments. You still work for Microsoft, right?

    Yeah, I’m still at Microsoft.
