I do look back and am pretty grateful for all these events, as they wrought both good and exciting changes in our life. My marriage is stronger (even with LDR) and am pretty happy with my career. Most grateful of all for is my steady eddie progress towards #financialgoals (or our Philippine version of it, considering wages and all). I may have spent more than I would like but at risk of being spartanesque I have, chosen to spend well in the right places (mostly travel, food and gaming). The travel piece was for both work and family, hitting places such as NYC and again yes Malaysia with the family. The food spend was.....well, food. The gaming hobby expenses were mostly on purchase of a Nintendo switch and a gaming laptop plus the requisite accessories. If I failed to mention this before, my wife and I are bigtime geek gamers. Another time for that story to tell.
Lastly, I will paste my NW update below but note that this falls slightly behind my goal on liquid assets as I had spent more cash than I had anticipated. But yes, I will be painfully honest in my update as this is a PF blog.
