Re: Whats your new years resolution? for 2014

[ Edited ]

Good thread!


No new apps in 2014


1 HP at mid year to get Discover CL high enough for serious home repair project


Get Discover APR reduced from 11.24 to 9.99


Reduce from seven cards to five


The middle two aren't totally in my control of course, but I can try.


Oh yeah, get all three scores over 760 and keep them there and growing.

For finances:


- Payoff debt

- Double my available credit (currently very low compared to income)

- Build a substantial savings buffer

- Scores above 720 in preparation for a 2015 house purchase


For everything else:


- Release my first personal iPhone app to the App Store (I'm an enterprise app developer, so all my work is internal, proprietary, and secret). 

- Lose 80 pounds, or whatever is possible. I've dropped 12 in January already. Now it will slow down and I'll have to kick up working out. 

- Learn Russian (took a semester in college, want to pick it back up).



In the garden til 8/31/14
