Today is my 30th birthday.
Instead of focusing on the past, as I've done far too often, I'm going to focus on the future.
In the next few months, I expect that Ace and I will be living on our own again, and will stay that way. We've found apartments we like, they are reasonably priced, and they come with a washer and drier in the apartment (something that seems rare for apartments).
In the next year, I expect that Ace and I will get a second car and will fix our current car's electric and heater problems.
In the next year, I expect that Ace and I will probably be getting ready for a baby (because I am an optimist).
In the next year, I expect Ace and I will start paying off our debts. Even if we aren't fully out of debt in a year, we'll be in a much better position than we are now.
In the next few months, I expect a new laptop and a new one for Ace too. We've needed them for at least the last year.
So, there you go. Those are my expectations for the next year.
