An awesome way to propose

I don't know who this is, as I just found it over the internet. However, this is very cool, and on top of it all, is not expensive to set up.

Long overdue update

With the end of the year approaching, how are you guys doing?

I am still here, though I must admit this has been the worst financial year I've had... in years.

Nothing catastrophic. Just stupidity on my part. Made a major mistake playing the Netflix stock and lost a bunch of money there. The rest had to do with me trying to improve my diet and fitness, which sadly does cost money, so I don't entirely regret that part.

On the upside, I once again saved up enough to contribute to my Roth IRA by January. However, I am not sure if I can pull that off again for 2014. I guess we will have to see.

Also, I am still gainfully employed and am working on improving income. Still recovering from the recession, this hasn't been an easy task, but it's going.

To end on a more positive note, I have learned things about diet and fitness that I've never known previously in my life. Whey protein, omega-3, quinoa, tempeh, HIIT, pre-hab, leangains, even P90X. These are terms that I didn't understand or even knew existed at the beginning of the year. It gives me a strange kind of hope for next year I guess.

Financially, not a whole lot happened besides seriously denting my net worth. I did finally consolidate and streamline my finances, so that's another upside.
