The rest of your life is going to be spent getting back up after life has knocked you down again. You might as well just get used to it.

On Meaningless Arbitrary Numbers

Just passed an arbitrary number in my quest to get debt free.

Sometime in the past two weeks, I dropped above -$10,000 in net worth. Considering that I was below -$21,000 in September, I'd say I'm making some progress.

Next month, I should be able to drop above -$10,000 in total debt.

Hey, they're completely arbitrary numbers, and they probably only mean something to me. But, it's progress. I'll take progress.

Even if I'm still only halfway there.
