RE: Things You Accomplished in 2014
2014 was pretty much only a successful year financially for me, and even that could've been better. In pretty much every other area in my life I regressed. I'm not sure how to feel about this, as my biggest problem area in 2013 was my financial situation, as well as not having a job.

Good:
I saved up around $30,000 CDN. I have student loans, but the payments are small, so this is a pretty good war chest.
I have a few people at my current job who I think would give me a good reference if I needed one for another job.
I began to make a real effort to come out of my shell socially. I tend to keep to myself but that's changing little by little.

Bad:
I didn't really advance my career as far as skills go, and didn't get promoted.
I've gotten into really bad physical shape. I weigh 230 lbs; last September I was 210lbs. And I lost muscle.
My sleeping patterns have gotten really bad, and I'm beginning to get bags under my eyes.

The biggest thing stopping me from improving my life faster is my work situation. I work a shit job at a bank, in an area where pay is low, and promotions are hard, developing new skills is hard, and the raises are tiny. I work 40 hours there, but everyday I commute 1.5 hours there and back, so really on weekdays 11 hours of my day minimum is dedicated to work.

I want to set my self up to be able to make money on better terms than now. I feel really replaceable at work, and I don't develop any skills while there. I want to learn something like copywriting and/or web development, and get back to going to the gym 5-6 days a week like I used to, but I just need to find a way to get the time on weekdays.

The first part of the year my focus will be on figuring that out.
