So far

I have to say things have been lining up pretty well as far as my "to do" list is concerned and I have managed to cross out quite a number of things from my list.

I sold all the furniture in my apartment and moved out. I tend to be a minimalist so clearing out my apartment was pretty easy. I was very lucky to find another place that suited me perfectly! this family was renting out their fully furnished basement that was self contained; it has its own bathroom, kitchen, living room and a separate bedroom. The sweetest part of the deal is, my rental expenses are half of what I was paying at my old apartment, sweet!

I finally got rid of my glasses and contact lenses thanks to laser vision correction. I did not qualify for Lasik so the other alternative was PRK. The healing process is longer than Lasik but in the end I have no regrets about the procedure, I can finally see without glasses or contact lenses. Gone are the days of waking up and scrambling around for my glasses, squinting in the shower, worrying about running out of contact lenses solution while traveling and many other hustles of having poor vision. I am just glad that during my travels, my vision will be the least of my worries:)

Sure felt good donating my glasses, yay!!!!!
I bought a new camera that has some pretty cool features, I know it's not all fancy but a point and shoot camera is all I can handle in terms of photography....................for now anyway.

For health insurance I have narrowed down my options to the following three (I will make my final decision later):
Travel Guard

I managed to boost my savings thanks to cutting back on my living expenses and staying debt free. You can never have enough money so I will continue to aggressively save until the last minute, my goal is to not only have enough money to travel for a year but to also have a safety net to fall back on after my year of travel is up.

I took Spanish classes which really expanded my vocabulary plus I also practice online using duolingo and other cool youtube videos that I have found. Spanish is not an easy language in my opinion, the verbs can be so confusing! but I am determined to learn.

I still have a few things left on my "to do" list which keeps changing but I am happy at my progress thus far:)
