I have a problem of focus, drive, and determination. I’m like a steam engine… I’m filled up, ready to go head on into the distance. I find a hobby or creative outlet and the steam builds and builds and builds… I may or may not finish that outlet or project and it’s like I have no more coal.
I need some coal. Coal for Christmas please!
Let me begin this by saying, I am not rich but I am also not poor. I obviously have frivolous spending if I’m writing on my own laptop, posting to my own domain name that is paid hosted. Secondly, a new addition to my life (son, Ben) has made me far more introspective than I have ever been before… to the detriment of my personal relationship with Stephanie. I’m becoming more focused on me, my family, and our future. My 20-something spending habits are beginning to change.
Turning to documentaries on rich families and how they got there… I wonder how to do it. I mean… really, how to really do it. It’s primarily through capital gains (50%+ income). Investing. I think I’ll redouble my efforts and tell my 20-something spending habits to enjoy buying well researched stocks.
$5,800 invested to date… lets see what happens? I don’t expect nor want to be filthy rich but I am aiming to make a discernable change in my lifestyle.
Today was a very important day for Stephanie and I… the day of showers. At around12:30pm today we parted ways and headed to our respective parties. Women on one side, men on the other. Games and candy and gifts at one party… at the other Beer, wings, beer, and beer.
The gifts were well received and well needed, this tradition has us just a bit better prepared for the little bundle of joy and for that we are thankful. The other party… well, no real gifts…just friendship, beer, and beer friendship. Really all a guy needs. In less than one month I will officially be a father and be welcomed into that “exclusive club”. Should be interesting!
I’ve started this website over more time than I care to admin. With high hopes and low motivation – I let it fall. I’ve purchased handfuls of domain names with high hopes as well… same result. I’m now 30 and I’m about to have my first child with my amazing girlfriend Stephanie. I don’t know much at this point except that I’m starting to look at live anew. I’m 30 and I still haven’t found my passion. When will it come?
Stephanie and I completed our Childbirth Education class! The time is coming!!!
