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.

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.
November 1st - Still the 1
December 1st - Still 1
Other achievements of note.
School work is in full swing. Went to Mexico on a trip to see modern day tidal flats which was really cool (and cold). And currently wrapping up the semester. Nothing else that I can really think of of note, but I am starting to work on my list for next year which will include all of these for this year since I don't think I will have any of them done in a month.
