As a flight attendant, there are no two things more important than your base and your seniority.  The base becomes your home and your seniority gives you access to the best trips and vacation weeks possible.  For a few years now, my seniority in Chicago has been stagnant due to the droves of flight attendants … Continue reading Spreading the FIRE ...

Today on the plane I opened a chocolate and was greeted with this message: This could mean anything, right?  Depending on where you are in your life, “Make the first move” could be aimed at your love life, a project at work, or something else completely.  It could mean that it is the time to … Continue reading Make The First Move ...

Some would argue that we have everything we need in our own backyard and, for those some, that may be true.  If you have had the great honor of meeting your mate, having a child, and/or retiring in a home you love with a community you are involved in, you very well may have won … Continue reading Why I Travel Despite It Delaying FI ...

May came and May went and I survived. For those of you following along, you are very much aware of my addiction to spreadsheets and tracking.  It is a nerdy hat that I wear well and take much pride in.  The hat, however, started to stretch out from overuse and was slowly slipping further and … Continue reading Knowledge Gained From A Month Of Financial Celibacy ...

Ugh…don’t you just hate these 1 year blogiversary things??  I’m with you!!  I have only read a few (and one in particular) that hit the nail on the head but those are such a rarity.  Overall, I am not huge on self congratulating indulgences, however, for historical purposes of my own interest (it’s all about me, … Continue reading 365 Days… ...

Life is funny. Sometimes the most fabulous times collide with the hardest of moments…I believe the word appropriated for such times is “bittersweet”.  This weekend was a perfect example. As many of you know, my Nana has been sick for the past few weeks and passed away this Sunday while I was out of town. … Continue reading Unfuck Yourself… A Non $$ Lesson From Camp Mustache ...
