Part 3 -Big Life updates

My mom passed away on October 16, 2022. She had pancreatic cancer so I was prepared for this but it still hard. My dad also passed away from cancer so I was already familiar with the process of what happens after a parent passes this time is different because my mom and I did everything together before. My mom and I were each other’s bubble during the pandemic and we were each other’s social life for a long time. It is a tough adjustment now living in a different city where I don’t know many people without the person that I spent most of my free time with. My moms last words to me were be strong you are strong I will hold on to that. My mom also wrote a goodbye letter to my brother and me. I’m not sure if my brother has read it yet but I want to say if you are going to write a goodbye letter don’t wait until you are heavily medicated and in lots of pain to do it or just don’t do it. I’m holding on to the actual memories I had with my mom the letter has been given to my brother to do wh

2017 Year in Review and 2018 Goals

2017 was a year of change for me but I feel like 2018 is going to have bigger changes.

I joined Instagram @livingvancouverloca and post pictures like this

I visited the United States a few times even though Donald Trump became president. I went to Tulalip and stayed in the beautiful resort 

 I took this plane and Visited Las Vegas a week after the mass shooting there.

I only had a few small contest wins this year a Tim Hortons gift card, some Starbucks, tickets to the home show, and tickets to the Nestle Toll House cafe Vancouver Grand Opening. Total value of the wins less than $100



I got some great freebies to review  from social nature cashew nut ice cream, coffee, salt, chips, vegan pizza, vegan gluten free bread and more. Total value of freebies to review around $75.

I bought and Instant Pot and learned I could make popcorn in it.




 

Goals 2017

In 2017 I quit my job with a company that I had a very long-term relationship with then I learned
web development. Then I learned I wasn't good at web development and ended the year jobless but not broke yet. Financially it wasn't the best decision but mental and health wise it was the best decision I could possibly make.

I had three major goals for 2017

1.Get Healthier - Mentally I made a lot of progress, physically its a constant battle but I am working on it. This continues to be a goal for 2018.

2. Win a Trip - No luck with this one but I did get a free trip for two to Las Vegas. I used save-on points for the flights and my favourite hotel in Las Vegas South Point comped the room and food. I will consider this goal accomplished.

3. Earn $1000 from the internet. Goal accomplished ended the year with $1040.00. See the previous posts for more info.

I managed to accomplish goal number 3 because I worked at it every day and I wrote it here on the blog so I am going to try and apply the theory to 2018 goals and hopefully I will accomplish these goals.

Goals for 2018 

1. Get a job, I pretty much took a year long holiday from working and now it is time to get back into the working world.

2.  Get healthier physically which means losing weight considering I put on 15 pounds last year alone losing that 15 pounds would be a great start.

3. Earn $1375 from the internet this is ideal as it goes along with the 52 week savings challenge that I am doing. For more info see the previous posts.

Hope you enjoyed this blog and will have a wonderful 2018. Follow @livingvancouverloca on Instagram, twitter, and Facebook.
