My Goals

I am very excited about blogging and all this stuff that I am up to recently. However, as I have financial background, I like to have a specific list with goals and objectives that I would like to archive.

I also want to share with you, what Macarona D and myself are up to those days. It can be that you are curious, or you seek for advise, or maybe you want to share your experience: this page will give you all the info you are hungry for.

Therefore, I proudly present you my goal list. These are all this things I am working on now, and wish to accomplish soon. Some things are ambitious, some stuff can be seen as crazy, but it is good to know what you want, doesn’t matter what it is or what others think about it 🙂

Items that are crossed off are completed, and I will place the date when it has been accomplished.

I will always try to add new things to accomplish, as there is always root for improvement, and somewhere to head to.
