Sitting around a campfire one summer on a family camping trip, my aunt told the story of a philosophy professor she encountered in college. This professor would have lengthy debates with his students over the concept that, “If you know The Good, you’ll do The Good.” The students would argue that they knew that going to a party, getting drunk, and staying up late instead of studying wasn’t “The Good” but ...

Smart phones are undeniably life-changing. The first iPhone will probably go down in history as one of the defining inventions of the early 21st century. Can you imagine going back to even  2002 and showing someone who had a giant box for a computer that a little touch-screen in your pocket could do everything their box CPU could do and faster? And now smart phones have become more than just a ...

As many of you know, my bike was stolen last weekend. Besides my laptop it was my most valuable physical possession. I bought it in 2015 for $650. While it is frustrating to have someone steal a valuable item that was my main mode of transportation, I am full of gratitude for the two years of service my bike provided me. Since I didn’t have to own a car over the last ...

The obvious factors that affect your take-home pay for a job are 1. how much are you getting paid? and 2. how much is taken out for taxes? But you’re not getting paid your after-tax wage per hour. It’s only per hour you are working, and doesn’t take into account commute time, lunch time, or what you have to spend on transportation, clothes, or food that you otherwise wouldn’t have spent ...

Fear not if you haven’t bought me a birthday present, I don’t want you to give me anything. What I want is for you to open a Roth IRA if you don’t have one yet (check out this post to learn how to go about it, and I can help you out too!) OR if you already have a retirement account, put an extra amount in there. Maybe $20, maybe $100, ...

When I was in high school and all my friends started getting cell phones, I promptly argued to my parents that I should have one too. They told me that I could get a phone whenever I wanted to, but I had to pay for it. So I rocked a pay-as-you-go flip phone for a couple years when I was 15 or 16. Then I got an iPod touch, and ...

Imagine you are at a restaurant.* A bow-tie clad waiter approaches your table and hands you a menu. You open it, and are surprised to find that there is no food to order. Rather, this menu is filled with paths your life can follow. You can choose to be whatever you want, do whatever you want, go wherever you want. This may sound like a dream, but it’s more reality than ...

Money is neither good or bad. It is a tool, and can be used for positive or negative things, just as a hammer could be used to build a home or could be used as a deadly weapon. Unfortunately, we hear a lot about the tool of money being harnessed in negative ways, often in the pursuit of more money and power. Big tobacco companies paid researchers and scientists to claim ...

Being home for my little sister’s graduation party took me back to my own transition from high school to college. I accomplished quite a bit freshman year, but here’s what I wish I would have done on top of those accomplishments. 1. Get a job (preferably on campus) I worked a few jobs in high school and had a decent amount of savings going into my first year of college. I burned ...
