Goals in Life

I really don't strive for much in my life. I guess that's kind of a bad thing. I mean, there are things I want to do, but nothing is really an absolute must. I like to just see what happens and what I may or may not be able to do.

With that said... I want to buy a house. And I want to do it before I'm 30.

That's my goal. I'm about 4 months shy of my 28th birthday and I'm really not very close to buying anything... but I figure after 2 years I'll have a couple of major things paid off or very close and my credit should be fairly decent by then. It's not dreadful now, but it's not anywhere near where I'd like it to be to get a good rate on a house.

So from now until my 30th, the actions that go along with this goal mostly include limiting spending and paying off credit cards. I had made some progress in this area previously, but have slid back into more debt as I've bought more things I didn't absolutely need. It's hard for me... I like nice things I guess. I just have to have more self control in that area.

Hopefully I can make enough progress in the next 2 years to pay down debt and even save a bit of a down payment. Hopefully...
