Hi seem like I’ve been MIA for awhile, a lot have happen. I did had a whole year of 2015 that I didn’t post anything and I started to repost my net worth again in March 2016. I was suppose to stay oversea and go with another company in this post HERE, but that didn’t work out to good. So in 2015 I went back home in the states and worked for a couple month from March 2015 - to October 2015. I decided to return back to Afghanistan in October 2015 to make more money and build up my retirement/dividend portfolio. My contract is getting ready to be up in October 2016 and I have accepted a job offer in United Kingdom and will be working their in October 2016.
Since I still have a part of me wanting to travel this seem like it’s a good opportunities for me to get paid and travel. Things are looking up so far, although I will not get paid as much like in Afghanistan it’s still a decent amount. I will have the freedom to travel/explore new places and I’m very excited to having a life again. Also I would like to continue my blogging and hopefully I can eventually get good enough where I can also monetize it. I’m also looking at taking photography class and buying a decent camera to take pictures with when I get to the UK and start traveling.
My financial status/goals for 2016 is really good since I’m back oversea now. I was able to max out my 401k, IRA, and continue investing in index/stocks. In fall 2015 I purchase a house in Virginia and was intended on living their until I received an opportunity to back oversea again. I decided to take it and end up renting out my house. I now have 3 rental house, I’m hoping to purchase another house probably end of 2016 or beginning of 2017. I also bought a car thinking I was going to stay in the states for awhile, that was a big mistake. I thought about selling it, but right now it’s just sitting their at my brother house collecting dust. Well at least he does drive it sometimes to keep it from just sitting their all the time. So I have a car note that I will need to pay off.
Have any of you made any big changes recently?
