So I just got done with FinCon19 and in lieu of me writing a review post, here’s my ridiculously long-delayed July spending post. Hey, I may be super behind the times, but at least I’m not quitting my blog like so many other people seem to be recently! Two words sum up the month: vacation … Continue reading "July 2019: vacation. And moving" The post July 2019: vacation. And moving appeared ...

One of my goals for the year is to do something that’s out of the ordinary for me. I recently did the thing and I’ve been dropping broad hints about it: Here’s a peek into a very significant lifestyle change I recently made pic.twitter.com/MPf1ygtSL2 — Erin | Reaching for FI (@reachingforfi) August 15, 2019 Spoiler … Continue reading "New apartment, new… me?"

In lieu of making New Year’s resolutions, this year I decided to set 19 goals for the year of 2019. And it’s July August, which means it’s time past time to check in to see how I did during Q2. (Remember what I said about being realistic about how I won’t work on posts during … Continue reading "19 for 2019: Q2 update" The post 19 for 2019: Q2 update appeared ...

One day I’ll learn to actually finish drafting posts before I go on vacation because it’s just not gonna happen while I’m gone, even if they’re 90% done. And then it’s super not gonna happen while I’m moving soooooo… hi, hello! It’s been a while! One day I will live in a fully-functional, unpacked apartment! … Continue reading "June 2019: lots of hiking and a flat tire" The post June 2019: ...

As I hinted in my last post, it’s been a season of existential crisis. I wrote about it two years ago—the summer is always a fun couple of months where I endlessly agonize over what I’m doing with my life and/or at the very least what I’m doing still paying as much rent as I … Continue reading "I’m moving!"

This time with a working link in the email because I’m not publishing it by mistake! May was…a month that happened. It was a largely stressful month—every year about this time I have a fun existential crisis about what am I doing with my life, am I moving or staying here, am I moving out … Continue reading "May 2019: I went shopping.

Posting this (barely) still in May still counts as on time! It’s been a busy month, what can I say. Anyway, April started off with a bang with 19 days of work straight: I worked both Saturday and Sunday shifts the first two weekends of the month. It was fucking exhausting. Granted, that resulted in … Continue reading "April 2019: big job changes (but no new jobs)" The post April 2019: ...

In lieu of making New Year’s resolutions, this year I decided to set 19 goals for the year of 2019. Given that it’s somehow (HOW) already May, it’s past time for me to see if I’m on track to complete them all. The goals: Money 1. Max out Roth IRA contributions for 2019 Status: indeterminate/needs … Continue reading "19 for 2019: Q1 update" The post 19 for 2019: Q1 update appeared ...

Honestly with how busy I’ve been and how infrequently I’ve been posting lately, it kinda seems like it’s just now very on-brand for me to write posts long after I decided I was going to. So why not a Europe trip recap that’s a month late? It’s an excuse to post a bunch of pictures … Continue reading "Amsterdam, Paris, and Brussels, oh my!"

March was a whirlwind of a month, and the beginning of it was approximately 6357654357 years ago. Wanna know how I know that? Because the month started off with AYCE sushi (a #DCmoneynerds tradition) (also, YUM) the last time Military Dollar was in town. And that was actual ages ago. What else has happened in … Continue reading "March 2019: holy income, Batman!" The post March 2019: holy income, Batman! appeared ...
