I just started taking Personal Finance. It was an elective. That's all I have left. YAY electives! I think I deserve this after taking darned statistics, but really, when it comes down to it, what do I really deserve?
The goal of this class is to create a personal financial plan, but before any of that can be accomplished, goals must be set.
Oh, I love this kind of stuff. It just gets me all excited! Is that weird? Are there other people like this or am I just extremely nerdly in my own special way?
When I was about 14 and went to seminary for the first time, we would have a daily devotional. We, smart alec kids in my class, found a quote book and located the shortest quote we could find. We agreed with each other, out of earshot of our teacher, that that would be our devotional on any day when we weren't prepared or were called on spur of the moment. Little did I know that that quote would haunt me again in my life, and little did I know how much impact this quote would have on me. It was as follows:
|“If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them” (Henry David Thoreau, Walden, 1854).|
