On Friday, I took some initiative and I got rid of all that stuff I said I would. I can't believe it. I followed through on some hard stuff just like I said I would. I'm already sad about Spotify. It breaks my heart, but I will survive. Hopefully.
I'm home in Salt Lake for drill and I decided to take advantage of the "free" time that I have. I also started reading this book about retirement and the best way to save money for when I'm old and social security isn't a thing. It's a pretty dang boring book, but I'm learning a lot and I'm pretty sure it'll change my future. So that's pretty cool.
That's not all I'm reading though. It's not the focus of January, but I've made it a personal goal for 2015 to read more books. I put it down on my 2014 list, but I didn't really follow through. My year ended up being filled with the Military, a cross country road trip, and yet another big move to Las Vegas...so the book thing only happened via audio book during my road trips. I "read" a whopping total of 3 books last year. I used to love reading. I used to read a book every single day...
This year, I decided that the only way to get myself to read a bunch of books was to make a list of books I want to read. I've been inspired by Bonnie, so of course, I stole a couple books off her list that I haven't read and I definitely should have.

And....I suppose I should start with these. I'm working hard to make my life more enriched with the written word. I could really benefit from some time away from Netflix and into the reading. Any suggestions? I could use em!
