At the beginning of 2015 I sat down and created a couple of long term goals for the year. The year before was great. I accomplished every goal I wanted to accomplish, whether it was bucket list related or randomly accomplished by the grace of God. This year I still believe the universe and God are both still with me. With God, the universe, and a lot of hard work and dedication I was able to meet my 2015 goals a lot sooner than expected. My goals were to Increase my credit score, a trip to New York, buy a new used car, Graduate with my Process Technology Degree, Get my first apartment, and get a major surgery.
I knew I wanted to increase my credit score but I didn’t have the knowledge to do so. I asked around and did some research on how to increase my credit. I took the information I learned and put it use, then BAM! my credit score started to increase each month. I thought,”why didn’t I figure this out sooner?”. I didn’t dwell on it long though because I know it is all a part of life, (the learning and growing thing). I increased my credit score by paying my credit card bill every month on time and I paid off my debt that I had with debt collectors. I paid off my debt using the snow ball effect (pay off smaller bills then work my way up to larger ones). Next thing I knew I had ZERO DEBT!! Praise the Lord and thank you baby Jesus!!!
My little sister made me promise to her that we will travel the world together. We've been taking little road trips here and there like to South Padre, San Antonio, and Dallas. But now she was ready for something bigger. She had never been on a plane before and she is very much into fashion. So I thought what better place to go than NEW YORK to see unique fashion and get on plane. That’s right we went to New York. Ive been once before, but to share my sister first time experience on a plane is something ill never forget. She was very nervous and didn’t know what to really expect. ( I thought it was cute). I let her sit by the window lol (I know the importance of sitting by the window because it’s the coolest seat ) . When we got to New York, we had a blast. We walked and walked and walked then walked some more. Lol we walked everywhere! But hey that’s all a part of the New York experience. When I got back from New York, I brought my new used car. 2005 Malibu Chevrolet. I love it!! It needs a little TLC and im happy with offering it.
Just last week I walked across the stage to receive my Process Technology Degree. That moment made all of my sacrifices and hard work worth it. I don’t even have the words to express how I felt to know my family was in the audience watching me walk across that stage. They supported and believed in me. And I am so blessed for both of my parents to see that moment. Education is endless so therefore im not done and I cant wait to start my next journey in education.
I now have only two more goals that I set at the beginning to the year to meet. They are getting my apartment and having my surgery. In a couple more months I will have both. So cheers to Year 2015 its been an awesome journey thus far. AND IM LOVING IT!!
