According to a Fox News report, consumer debt is down to $11.4 trillion in the 4th quarter of last year from a peak of $12.5 trillion.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the obvious fact that Thousandaire.com started giving financial tips and tricks just before 4Q 2010.

a trillion american dollars

The internet claims this is a trillion dollars. I always thought it would be bigger.

Coincidence? I think not!

You’re welcome America.

In all seriousness, this is great news and makes me even more confident in a sustainable recovery. I will definitely be purchasing some stock either today or early next week to take advantage of the market pullback from this week.

Now for the personal stuff. I’ve been slacking a bit on the blog this week because I had two Spanish tests this week. I was traveling so much that I hadn’t been to Spanish class in 3 weeks, so I had to make up a test I missed on Tuesday. Then “el professor” told me that we had a test on the next chapter on Thursday. I had two days to teach myself an entire chapter of Spanish, so I didn’t have much time to blog.

In addition to all that stuff, I’m writing parodies and trying to film other videos, but a lot of times I’ll film something and then not like how it turns out, so I don’t post it. On the contrary, I film a fair amount of my daily life but my vlogs haven’t been received very well in the past so I didn’t want to post them.

The solution: I’ve made a new youtube channel for vlogging where I’ll just throw anything I do up there. I won’t put those videos on this site unless they are relevant and/or incredibly funny, but I will post the first one next week and give you guys an opportunity to subscribe.

I’m going to Medieval Times tonight with Tag to eat with our hands and watch a battle of epic proportions. Maybe I’ll get a little footage there for my vlog channel next week.

So that’s what’s going on in my life. I’ll just enjoy my weekend knowing I’m responsible for $1 trillion in debt reduction.
