Gongey’s BlogDescribing the Indescribable World of The Gongey

All things Gongey

A Gongey is a special being. Having been created in the fiery furnaces of hell...wait...let me start over.
Back when collars were huge and pants were in the shape of bells I was born. The year was 1977. After 10 long months of gestation I was ready to join the world and make my contribution.
This blog is a record of my life. Good, bad and generally mundane!

We are 3 days into 2012 and I don’t notice anything different.  🙁  In this webisode of Gongey.com I am going to list all the things I would like changed this year.  Throughout the year I will re-visit this list to see how things are going.

2012-Things I want changed or want to do:

  • Ability to concentrate on important tasks longer than 5 minutes, preferably for hours at a time!
  • Start a decent marketing campaign for Natural Edge
  • Obama OUT OF OFFICE!
  • SOPA better not pass!
  • NDAA better be repealed!
  • 6 months of emergency funds in savings
  • Get out of debt this year
  • Purchase a dual-sport bike
  • Get the Belvedere running(engine is almost complete!)
  • Wood flooring in living room and hallway
  • Re-model master bathroom
  • Lose weight – even if it’s getting somewhat close to my early 20’s body
  • Get a couple of websites going that bring in a good amount of residual income
  • Spend more time with family
  • Spend more time outdoors

**Edit: As noted by my niece; it does seem ludicrous that I mention getting out of debt, then immediately talk about buying stuff.  I always forget to explain that when I talk about buying stuff(big ticket items) it means buying them with cash.  Unless it’s an absolute emergency I don’t pay for stuff with credit.

That seems like a reasonable list of changes for 2012.

What are some changes you would like to see?  Have you already started on your own list?

    My favorite part of your list is where you say, “get out of debt.” then after that you list like 5 big purchases you want to make! Haha. Having a good chunk of savings is always me and Andrews goal. I think its way smart to have something like that. The change I want to make this year is: Have better grades than I did last year.

    Yes I edited the post to better clarify my big purchases.
    I forget that most of America associates buying stuff to mean putting it on credit. When I talk about buying stuff it always means with cash.

    If you don’t have cash then you don’t buy it.

    I know, I think its because of you and that philosophy of yours that I am better off than… well…my other sibling. You have good advice.
