9 Months in
1. Finish the first draft of my fiction novel.

September 1st - Still nothing, I hope to start once my new laptop arrives and I am a little more organized with school.
October 1st - Still nothing. Have laptop, just need time now.
2. Drop my weight to 167lbs.
Start of 2009 - I started the year at ~185
February 1st - ~180

April 1st - 172.2
May 1st - 172.2 (somehow again)
June 1st - 171.0 (Finally something)
July 1st - 172.2 (I bet the scale likes me at this)
August 1st - 171.2 (Yea, back down a little)
September 1st - 172.8 (and back up, apparently doing only aerobics does not help you lose weight. Unfortunately I am doing a triathlon in 2 weeks so that is the main focus of my training.
October 1st - 172.2
3. Pay off all my credit cards.
Start of 2009 - I started the year with 5 credit cards with balances and one relative we owed money to.
February 1st - Payed back the relative. Still 5 cards with balances.
March 1st - Payed off 1 card. 4 cards with balances.
April 1st - Payed off another card. Currently 3 cards with balances.
May 1st - Payed off one more. Down to 2 cards with balances. 1 with 0% APR until 2011 though so that one may be waiting a while.
June 1st - Still 2 cards to pay off
July 1st - Still 2 cards to pay off
August 1st - Still 2 cards to pay off
September 1st - Still 2
October 1st - Actually down to 1 now. Payed off the one card, and now the last card has a 0% APR until 2011, so this will probably not be payed off this year. But otherwise I mostly achieved this goal.
Other achievements of note.
School is full steam ahead. I still feel like I am always behind but 2 classes end in the middle of October so hopefully I will get a better grasp on the situation after that. But otherwise I seem to still be a float. Finally got my new laptop so I can actually update a little more often now which I have been slowly doing. There are a bunch of updates that I have been wanting to compose so expect to see them sometime in the future.
I completed my first real triathlon a couple of weeks ago and I will have a more indepth post on that soon as well. Other than that nothing really, reading lots for school but almost nothing for fun.
