Here’s the big reveal: we’re under contract to build a new house. It’s a development house, thus, not a custom build. Sigh…please don’t judge… Not sure if reason went out the window the past month or we’re finally upgrading our lifestyle just a bit more. The last time we had a huge upgrade in lifestyle was over 5 years ago ...

In terms of solidifying our path to independence, the next five years will be crucial. I realize this journey is a marathon, not a sprint. There are times when I wish the needle would just move faster. This type of mentality just means I’m wishing my life away. I’m trying my best to encourage us to focus on the present while keeping the future in mind. This is hard for ...

On Monday, I walked in to the office and gave my manager my two weeks’ notice. It was the shortest conversation ever. Me: “Just wanted to inform you my last day will October 13th.” Manager: “Where are you going to work?” Me: “I’m leaving to pursue other opportunities.” Manager: “Are you leaving the city.” Me: “I’m leaving the company.” Manager: “Well, best wishes.” Then, I got up, mentioned something about using the rest of my vacation, and ...

On Monday, I will walk into the office and give my two weeks notice. Oh, also, I will tell my manager I will need to take 5 days off to use up all my vacation. My company does not pay full for vacation, so I’m going to take the vacation instead. I’m both excited and anxious. I will go into more detail of why I decided to resign after a little ...

This blog has always been about sharing the ups and downs of someone trying to manage all aspects of life: money, career, personal. I always admire the people who have made it: Mr. Money Mustache, Root of Good, Retire by 40, and Mr. 1500 are just a few of the bloggers who inspire me. I started following them when I was 21, working on my master’s degree, and living paycheck to ...

My 2018’s resolutions will have to include publishing more posts. I have been MIA the past couple of months…well maybe more than a year to be honest. Once you stop writing, it’s hard to start writing again. It feels a bit weird starting to share again. But honestly, it’s very much like running. Once I finish running, I feel great. Writing is therapeutic. About a year ago, we relocated to the ...

Just finished a pretty rough week. Well, actually most weeks have been pretty rough lately. Today being Friday though, my mood did improve. I smiled, I laughed….I did a great job of faking it today!!! Payday is 10 days away! I wanted to write a quick post to warn people. Corporate america is very cut throat. It’s all about numbers. We just started our new budget season. Sales are down, which means ...

It’s July 2017. In May 2017, I was promoted and moved to a new team. More money, more stress. Remember how I said we were thinking about buying a house? Scratch that. The last couple months have made me realize I can’t keep doing this until I’m 65. And my husband has wanted to retire since forever ago. The whole climbing the corporate ladder is also not looking enticing at all. In a moment ...

I’m super busy. Work, gym, home, sleep. These days are all blurring together. Pardon any grammar mistakes, I wrote the following post very quickly.  I don’t know what it is about this week, but it’s been quite challenging to focus on work. I just want to be doing something else completely different. My husband just started a new job and he feels the same way. He is a lot more vocal ...

When we relocated for my job this summer, we had to find a new place to live pretty quickly.Having only been in the city for twenty four hours during my final interview, the search for a place was a bit overwhelming. Since we were packing up our house, saying our goodbyes, dealing with family, and work, we had no time to go and search for a new place. Most people ...
