My name is Brian, and I am a numberaholic. I know, that’s not a real word, but I have to admit it, I love numbers. I have a spreadsheet that shows my current debt and projects it out till the end of my mortgage. Granted this debt only includes my mortgage and my student loan, but I have a spreadsheet showing a conservative worst case for paying off my loans. Really, those two bills are my only debt since mt credit card is paid off every month. Every time I make an extra payment, I shift all of the numbers to correct for this. Now, this would not be a big deal, except along with this spreadsheet are also a ton of graphs and even a debt ratio. I went all out with this debt spreadsheet, and I think about it all the time.
My love of numbers also crosses over to my blog site. I can’t help but watching the numbers on the blog, watching the amount of people who read the blog, watching the totals for the days, weeks, and months. I get all excited when I get new highs and I am disappointed about my lows. I look into what I posted on those highs and wonder if I can replicate them. I can’t help it; I need to watch these numbers,. I have to check more than once and hour.
Even when it comes to my gaming hobby, I track numbers. I track my win/loss/tie record, I track my record against my friends, my league, and I even track my record by my armies. I have created graphs for this, yet, but I do see it happening.
I follow all numbers that I can think of in my life. I look for patterns, averages, and meanings behind all of these numbers.
Again, Hello, my name is Brian, and I am a numberaholic.
