Ok Here's the Situation

Things are happening in my favor and it really feels good. My thinking cap is on and it is time to make the most out of things. Just finished my last class. I may get a B; don't know how I feel about that.

Currently, I have $9,096.76 to my possession and I again, I don't know how to feel. This is the most money I have had at one time. Ok, there, I put it on paper. Really been trying to figure out a few things. Supposed to purchase three homes this month, but person selling had some other things happen. Hopefully, I will close in March maybe April. The eviction was crazy. The people that were living there were selling drugs and dogs out of the house. And there was this mean living in the backyard in a camper. I cancelled the eviction because the house was empty. Maybe I should have kept it. The house is messed up on the inside very dingy. Now I am getting the house situated. There are a few things that need to be done in the house. I don't want to spend too much cash to fix the entire thing. What about $2,500? Since the house is empty I am paying the mortgage. Maybe I can get it rented out until I get everything up and running. That means that I will have to purchase a refrigerator, beds, furniture, and more. Everything is moving and I must be ready to receive all of the positive favor. Remember, when I close on the houses I will have a down payment, closing costs, and other additional fees $2,000.

In order to do what I want to do, it's going to take plenty of patience and focus. I think I said focus before because that is truly what I need.

Rewrite of things to come:
All things in bold have been completed.

Plug ins
Paint house inside and out
Redo floors
Make sure everything is working
Floor heater fixed
Central heat and air secured working
Back window secured

Complete Policies and Procedures
Get measurements of house

Breadth KAM I
Application KAM I
Breadth KAM II
Depth KAM II
Application KAM III
2 Residencies

Also, almost finished with school. Slowly coming close. All it will take is dedication and focus. I have to write. This is what is left: 3 KAMs, 2 residencies, & 1 dissertation. I don't have years to finish the dissertation. It has taken me long enough with the leave of abscence. I have played around long enough. The time for everything will be 2011. Make it pop is what I say.

Life is What You Make It

To be honest, this like all other posts may or may not make sense, but I just felt that I needed to write something. I have been working hard to make sure that I have things in order. For instance, my finances hence this blog, Liam is in order, and my personal life. At this specific moment, I understand that I am trying to make some changes for the better. Sometimes, I am scattered and mentally I can't focus on what is important. Currently, I can see the forest for the trees and I am not focusing on the bull. I am not getting any younger and know that at some point I have to make things work for me and my family. Financially, I am blessed and proud of where I have been, where I am, and where I am going. Truly, my signficant other has helped much with this. Thank you, you know who you are. I don't have a car note and that helps much too. As far as Liam is concerned I am getting at least one thing fixed a month. He is 12 years old and needs some maintenance, I can afford to spend a few hundred dollars on him once a month since he is paid for. No longer will I put his issues off. The needs some minor repairs, things that I should have gotten fixed a long time ago, since I did mess them up I should fix them.

Wow how time flies, I didn't realize that I have had this blog since 2008. My how time flies. It needs to be revamped. I guess I will sit down and sort out how I want it to look. I really need a new header. I want it to reflect how fabalous I am. Looking back over the years, I have made some serious financial mistakes, but now I know what to do to make it better.

There are many things that are about to occur in my life. One, we are changing schools (my middle school is merging with another and we have to move out of the building at the end of the year). Purchasing 3 houses at the end of the month, one which is an empty shell. Applying for my passport so that I can travel outside of the country. I am working toward making serious power moves. I don't want to work for ever, I don't want to have to work until I am in my 6os, I don't want to be like that. This is why I am making the necessary moves at this moment.

I think about myself from time to time and in my mind I am lazy and really don't want to do much. This may be true, but overall, this is not true. I am a go getter. It may take me some time to actually put it into play, but I will make it happen. Another thing, I haven't gone through an interview process in 9 years. I don't think I want to go through that ever again in my life. If I have too I will. What I see for myself is teaching online and being able to stay it home and do the things that I enjoy. I am truly blessed. Ten properties by 40. I know I can make it work. Just learn from the mistakes of others and everything else will fall in place.

I know that I can do all things possible.
