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 ...

Australia isn’t a radically different place from the US, but there were some notable differences and similarities I observed while spending two weeks there. Public Transportation Brisbane and the surrounding area easily had the best public transportation system I’ve ever seen. There was an endless stream of buses going in and out of the city, with an easy to use payment system, and relatively low fares. They have a separate “busway” next ...

A few days ago I got home from Australia, ending a two week period in which I spent as much money as I usually do in two months. I’d be lying if I didn’t admit spending that much hurt a bit. I’d also be lying if I didn’t admit that it was an incredible experience. The people I met, places I visited, and memories I made will stick with me for ...

The vocabulary word of the day is gamification. For my fellow millennial friends, I’m talking about Snapchat streaks. For anybody who doesn’t know what Snapchat streaks are, gamification is the use of game characteristics (point scoring, competition, etc) to incentivize an action. The power of gamification is unquestionable. If you have sent someone a Snapchat every day for the last 147 days, despite not having anything to tell them you’re going ...

The world is not fair. So much in our lives hinges on two things, where we were born and who gave birth to us. In both cases we have no say in the matter. The hand you’re dealt is the hand with which you must play the game. I understand that I was dealt about as good of a hand as anyone could hope for. I was born in a first ...

“You deserve way better than someone who treats you like that!” a supportive best friend says after a rough breakup. Respectfully, I disagree. We are not deserving of anything. When you come into the world, the world owes you nothing. You are not entitled to a car, a roof over your head, or a job once you graduate. You aren’t entitled to a relationship with someone who treats you the same way ...
