Thanks Obama

January 5th, 2016 at 09:57 pm

I tell you, nothing gets me out of the woodwork like a good political debate on gun control. For those who don't know by now, I'm very pro-gun. Been both a gun owner and a conceal carry licensed carrier for about 20 years now. Yeah....

That said though, I have to tell you, I am really moved by what President Obama is trying to do right now. He's doing what he can to try to keep society free and safe from further violence (perpetrated by firearms). I can respect that. In fact, I hope he succeeds. Seriously. Even though I am very pro-gun, I've always felt there were too many loopholes for shady people to get their hands on legal firearms. As far as I can tell, he's just trying to close some of those loopholes.

For the most part, I really do think President Obama has done a good job in trying to make a difference, and making our nation a better place. Agree or disagree, you can't argue that at least he tries (such as these latest executive actions for example). So uh, thanks Obama. Really!

Finally, I want to emphasize that I am not affiliated with the government or any political parties or factions or lobbies in any way. In fact, I really don't like nor care for politics most of the time.

But this is a personal finance blog, not a politics blog so let me shift gear. HOW ARE YOU GUYS DOING? Well I hope. I am doing quite well here actually. Finally ended up in a new house.

Um, finally bought some furniture for the first time. As always, I kept everything to a minimum I think. Just a sofa and a desk is new really. The rest is still the same.

In fact, I still only have a mattress on the floor, but the new house's closet is a bit too small for me to put even my mattress in there so, if I intend to do that, I may have to do some uh "engineering" in the future. Haha.

My personal finances is still chugging along. In fact, year over year, my net worth is still shooting up, along with my savings. Growth in 2015 is slightly stunted by the furniture and other house-related purchases, but overall, it's still been stellar.

In fact, except in one small area, I have never been happier or at least content in my life. I guess that's the fact that I'm still single. I've met a couple of people here and there, but nothing has stuck so far. That's OK though. I can't say it enough: I'd rather be single than be in a bad relationship.

Uhhhh let's see what else? Honestly, I don't know. That's why I haven't blogged in like forever. I am at a point where everything that I can do anything about is where I would like it to be... all the way down to the exact type of credit cards I would like to own and the exact amount of credit limit I would like to carry. It's crazy to think that my financial house is finally, at long last... in order?! What else am I suppose to do now? Haha.

I confess I haven't been keeping track of this community, but I hope everyone reading this is doing just as well. If there's anything I should know about, please comment. Anyway, here's to a happy new year for you!
