September 23, 2018 -Goals Update Part 1 - Get a job

I started drafting this post in June as it was half way through the year and thought it was a good time to do a goal update now it is September and I haven't posted this yet so what was I doing? Working on my goals of course. Should I put the blog on my goal list next year, so I work on it? I have made significant progress on all of the goals from my January 9, 2018 post. You can read  it here  http://www.livingvancouverloca.com/2018/01/2017-year-in-review-and-2018-goals.html  I had three major goals for this year.  January 9, 2018 - Goals for 2018 Summary 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. Ho
