Although I blog anonymously, I still try and put a little personality in to each blog post. If you’ve been following me for a while you probably know I have terrible grammar, I overuse the term “douche bag”, I have no financial credentials, and I’m 50% awesome and 50% awkward. In an attempt to further my blogging relationship with you all, I’m gonna use today’s blog post to share a little more about myself (consider this the blogging equivalent of reaching “second base”).
I’m a firm believer in setting and reaching personal goals. Sometimes my goals are serious (ie saving at least 15% of income for retirement), but I also like to set some fun goals. One such fun goal was to do a back flip. I know, it’s a pretty random goal and you might be wondering where did this desire came from? Well I had a friend that could do a backflip and I thought “Hey that’s freakin’ awesome, I want to do that.” Plus, I knew doing a backflip wasn’t going to be easy, and I always like a challenge.
What good is a goal, if you don’t have to work to achieve it? Well I’m proud to say after a couple of intense backflipping sessions (with a spotter of course) the time came for me to clip my wings and fly, and fly this ninja did. I can now do a backflip. Yesterday, during another epic sunset, I got a little bored and was able to use the 10sec timer feature on my camera to snap this sweet little picture below….
Some of my other “not so serious” life goals include: buying a wiener dog and naming him Mr. Bojangles, getting shot (but not dying), and trying to avoid going bald. I feel like I have a pretty good idea what most of your personal finance goals are, so why don’t we lighten things up and share some silly goals? Do you want to own a kangaroo? Maybe you want to jump out of an airplane? Whatever your crazy awesome goals are, please take some time to share ‘em with me, ’cause I want to know!
p.s. don’t get confused by the first picture….Mama Ninja is not a stripper….at least I don’t think she is????
