Just about a month ago, I had the opportunity to meet Scott Trench and Mindy Jensen at Camp FI Southeast. This was great for one because they’re awesome, friendly people, but also because it was a nice opportunity to pick their (expert) brains a little bit about the real estate world. I’ve never owned real estate (always […]

At first, I wasn’t even going to write a post about this because I didn’t want to contribute to the noise, but I… can’t… take it anymore! It’s time to get a little rant-y. So, let’s do this. In the last couple weeks the stock market has dropped fairly rapidly. The S&P 500 was at […]

For some reason I always find myself wanting to start off articles or speeches with a disclaimer, so here’s a quick one, since I can’t help myself: This is an article I’ve meant to write for a while, but have mainly held off because most of my readers are already familiar with the topic. Nevertheless, […]

This year I decided that I was tired of just passively absorbing information from the various Financial Independence (FI) blogs and podcasts on the internet and that I wanted to actually get involved. I’d reached a point in my path to FI where most things were on auto-pilot and I felt like by getting more […]

This experiment started on December 1st and lasted for the whole month, through New Year’s Eve. I gave it the (arguably, fairly terrible) name of “Make TV Watching Hard.” The plan was simple: move my TV down into the basement so it would be harder to watch and I could avoid binge-watching. I’d then be […]

I forget where I first heard the phrase, but I’ve become enamored with the idea of dollar bills as “Little Green Employees”. You see, there are a few different things you can do with every dollar that you earn: Spend It– instead of a piece of colored paper (or more likely some numbers in a […]

In the Personal Finance community, a term that gets tossed around sometimes is Geo-Arbitrage: the idea that you can relocate to places with lower costs of living to make your money stretch farther when paying for the things you need on a day-to-day basis. This comes from the finance term, Arbitrage, which is essentially taking […]

On November 4th, I began a 30 day Meditation Experiment. What follows is a day-by-day account of how it went. If you just want the summary, skip down to the bottom. Daily Experience Day 1: I found a random 10 minute long guided meditation video on YouTube and gave it a try. I don’t know […]

You may remember that in 2015, some dictionary made headlines by declaring “binge-watch” to be their word of the year. Now, if you’re like me you probably take issue with a hyphenated word being given such a high honor in the first place, but let’s move past that… Binge-watching has become a part of our […]

Pretty much as long as I can remember I’ve been big into the fantasy genre (starting, of course, with Tolkien) and role playing games (RPGs). They were both excellent forms of escapism for a shy kid that loved the ideas of magic and fighting monsters. So, when the game “Fable” was released in 2004, and […]
