On July 14, 2009 I published a post titled Homeowner: check with the following excerpt of my goals list as at that date.
As you can see the goals back then was to finsih grad school and to pay off my mortgage in 8 years. For those of you that followed this blog you should have already gotten wind that I have finished my post graduate degree with much tribulation but what is new is that I have payed off my mortgage. By my calculations I have saved quite a few pennies in interest payments by liquidating a 25 year loan in less than 4 years.
- Go back to Disney world.
- Get post graduate degree.
- Become propertied by 26.
- ... etc.
Well this is one life goal I am glad to cross off the list and I have now replaced it with the goal of shaving 17 years off my mortgage term to finish paying back my loan in 8 years. This of course is under the assumption that all things remain equal, yes I aim high.
As I sit here typing this update I have been trying to figure out what next? I need to give this more thought but this is the updated list
Go back to DisneyWorld Get post graduate degree Buy house by 26 Pay off mortgage by 2017(did it by 2012!)
- Go skydiving
- Buy a boat
- Buy a house
- Do a 2+ minute freedive
