Track my finances for a year
Mint

I used mint.com, both the website and the mobile app (for cash expenses). Once a week I went to the website and categorized all my expenses. Most of them were auto-categorized, I just had to clean up the errors. It learns from your choices too, so as the weeks went on, it got quicker.

I use the debit/credit cards for almost everything, but for the rare cash expense, I input it using mint’s mobile app. Sort of a pain, but I only had to do that once every couple weeks



Write a graphic novel in November for NanoGraphicMo (read all 17 entries…)
Almost done

I’m still working on this even though it’s not NanoGraphicMo any longer.

I’ve been posting completed pages here:

NanoGraphicMo 2011

Decided that instead of trying again, I’d just pick up where I left off at the end of last November. It was easier than I thought it would be to get back into the story, though drawing the characters is hard. I guess when you don’t draw for a year you go back to square 1.

I think I’m up to 22 pages. I’m determined to finish it this year because I don’t want to wait until November 2012 :)
