Looking for a better new year

I can’t wait till this year is done and over with! I’ve made it through the year, taking care of little things and managing to keep food on the table, but it has not been a year of prosperity by any means. Next year has got to be better!
I need to start saving some money and getting more investments going. So far I have been investing in education, learning everything from php and css to massage therapy. An investment in education is one of the best, but I need to start earning more money, papa needs a new pair of shoes!
