I’m such a yutz! I feel as if I’ve forgotten my best friend’s birthday or I’ve skipped out on a kids first birthday party, both of which you never do by the way. I have been so absorbed in life around me that I completely forgot that I have been blogging for two whole years as of May 23rd. With every year that passes, I grow a bit more comfortable with speaking about my life online to complete strangers (and some of you that are no longer strangers). I’m normally a very reserved, private type of individual and initially when I started out, I was very concerned with what I wrote, how I wrote and who may read it.
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.
How better to express my 2 years of blogging experience than through Charles Dickens A Tale of Two Cities. I really have seen it all and wrote about it all on this blog; my financial foolishness with clothing and travel, my growing wisdom for savings and investing, and the moments of despair when the budget just isn’t working out right. Usually due to my crazy need to buy yet another piece of clothing or another pair of shoes or wait…just that one last purse that I’ve fallen madly in love with. Who needs men when you can have shoes and purses? Okay, maybe that’s taking it a bit too far…I would like to have a love of my life in my life sometime soon again.

2012 Where It All Began – Embrace Life Like a 4-Year-Old
Although I’m still expanding upon my strong mental foundation that I wrote about in 2013, I have come a long way. My dedication has allowed me to pay down debt and accumulate some savings. My net worth is a lot better than it was a year ago.
Net Worth May 2014 $16,872.34
Net Worth May 2013 -$1,647.00
Wow. That just hit me. I have accomplished a lot in the last year. It may not be gazillions of dollars and even though I have accumulated some debt back again here and there, I am still making progress.
