2023 Goals


I haven't really sat down to make any goals for 2023.  I know it's August, but I figure it's never too late. 

1. Contribute $15,000 to retirement with the goal of having $145,000 by the end of the year.  As it stands today I have approximately $138,000.  I do no yet qualify for my firm's 401k plan. 

2. Pay the mortgage down into the $140,000s. 

3. Donate $1500 to charity.   

4. Increase savings to $57,500. 

Do you have any goals for 2023?  Please share in the comments.

Update on Job Application


I did not get the non-litigation position that I applied for a few months ago. I just found out on Thursday.  It was not unexpected and was definitely a long shot from the beginning.  There a few more non-litigation positions that I will apply for, hopefully, tomorrow.  I just want to stay in the same salary range, $140k to $160k.  My job is entirely too stressful, and it affects my mental health.  I have tried anti-anxiety and antidepressants and they do not seem to help very much. I'll keep pushing along and find the right fit for me.
