First of all, I’m really praying for the siege on Westgate Mall to end soon. My sentiments on this are echoed perfectly by blogger Gathara. Also,this post on divas4tech says exactly what I’m feeling.

Anyway, in the midst of this tumult, I stumbled upon a draft post that I think should be published since this half is almost over. I’m a believer in writing down goals; it creates a commitment to achieve them, it’s like swearing an oath. They are no longer just dreams floating in the air but actual goals to be accomplished.
While still following up on my first half of the year goals, these are what I had decided to add onto my plate.
1. Register a business
It’s high time to go official, don’t you think? At some point, the entrepreneurial side of you realizes the time has reached when it’s no longer adequate to do side hustles as an individual. While employment gives me the experience and start that I need, I am not sure I want to be here till I hit retirement age.
Hit register now!
2. Save 100K for moving abroad
I know what you are asking yourself, since when was 100K (Kshs) enough for moving anywhere, and why would I be going there? More in this in the future.

3. Get car
I feel the necessity to contribute to the city’s traffic jams and carbon monoxide (or is it CO2) emissions. Ok, I kid. I just need to be really mobile right now. Sure, I may end up immobile in rush hour traffic but at least I will be listening to the radio, something that my Samsung S4 misses.
Come to mama.. yes you little red car.
4. Successfully defend my thesis
Unfortunately, I didn’t graduate this year, meaning I have to wait an entire year before graduation again as Strathmore has only one graduation ceremony a year. However, my graduate dissertation is ready and waiting for me to defend it.
5. Save for CISA exam
This will go a long way in enhancing my profession.
When the year ends, I shall have something to look back on and ask myself, what did I achieve?
