2015 Goal Review

 I made 10 goals at the beginning of 2015.  I did a  status update on June 5, 2015 and Octotber 4, 2015. Below are the final results

1. Pay off $10,000 on my student loans.

PASS- - I paid off $20,317 on my student loans!

 2. Pay off the smaller student loan completely.

PASS- the loan was paid off in April of 2015!

3. Cash flow the dental work I have left.

4. Be a better friend to my friends.
PASSISH I was definitely there for a good friend of mine when her mother passed away this year.

5. Read at least 24 books
FAIL- I ONLY READ 18 BOOKS! I don't know what happened.  

6. Give more (time and money).
FAIL!!- I did not give much time or money to any charitable organizations. 

7. Lose weight = 30lbs. OMG!! Weight loss to date--3lbs. Sigh.

 8. Find a new job.

9. Be more positive!

10. Increase online savings account to $3,500.


  1. Please please leave that toxic firm and find a new job. I'm a paralegal and I can't even begin to imagine how it must be for you there. Why have you not reported the poor work performance of your boss' assistant? It is completely unacceptable. The people that pay her salary should be aware of all the time that she is missing and her lack of productivity. It really seems like she has something on him almost to a level of blackmail. Also, it sounds like your boss has major issues either mentally or possibly substance or alcohol abuse related. His behavior and actions seems extremely erratic. Granted I can't know this first hand but from the way you describe him... Clearly the partners at the firm are doing nothing to fix this problem. You seem like such a hard worker and deserve so much better. Could you possibly rent out your house if you find a job in a different part of Florida? I'd hate to see someone as dedicated as you sound to allow this job to burn you out and lose your passion. You deserve much better. Don't be afraid to apply for jobs and don't worry about the fact that you got a raise recently to deter you. The firm is not showing you that they care about any of your reasonable concerns and you owe no loyalty in return. Have faith in yourself. You can do it!

    1. I think that you must have worked for a crazy boss before, because you have hit the nail on the head! My boss does have mental health issues and he talks about them frequently (As well as his therapy sessions and medications)! I plan to find a new job, but I just need to time things right. I have the opportunity coming up for some professional growth and I want to snag that before I make any moves. I also feel obligated to give the partner in the Central/South Florida office a chance to put her corrective action in place and let it work- so I'm trying to hang in there. The partners know about the absentee problem- they just don't care to fix it.
