I love going to the dentist to have my dental cleaning. One of the benefits of becoming an adult, having a job, and having medical insurance is being able to take care of my smile. When I started my first corporate job at the age of 22, I immediately looked into getting braces. My parents were never able to afford ...

I grew up in a low income household. My parents immigrated to this country and worked blue collar jobs. I am the oldest child. I have a sibling who is seven years younger than me. I have always been a very aware kid. At six, I knew we were poor. While most kids prayed for toys, I prayed for my ...

It’s really hard to ignore everything going down in Washington, D.C. I don’t usually discuss politics because the subject is very personal and a very taboo subject in the U.S. But…I just can’t believe what’s happening. Here comes a rant. In light of everything happening today: Flynn, the tax bill, Trump’s tweets, I just can’t be quiet. I identify myself as a ...

Here’s the big reveal: we’re under contract to build a new house. It’s a development house, thus, not a custom build. Sigh…please don’t judge… Not sure if reason went out the window the past month or we’re finally upgrading our lifestyle just a bit more. The last time we had a huge upgrade in lifestyle was over 5 years ago ...

In terms of solidifying our path to independence, the next five years will be crucial. I realize this journey is a marathon, not a sprint. There are times when I wish the needle would just move faster. This type of mentality just means I’m wishing my life away. I’m trying my best to encourage us to focus on the present ...

On Monday, I walked in to the office and gave my manager my two weeks’ notice. It was the shortest conversation ever. Me: “Just wanted to inform you my last day will be October 13th.” Manager: “Where are you going to work?” Me: “I’m leaving to pursue other opportunities.” Manager: “Are you leaving the city?” Me: “I’m leaving the company.” ...

On Monday, I will walk into the office and give my two weeks notice. Oh, also, I will tell my manager I will need to take 5 days off to use up all my vacation. My company does not pay full for vacation, so I’m going to take the vacation instead. I’m both excited and anxious. I will go into ...

This blog has always been about sharing the ups and downs of someone trying to manage all aspects of life: money, career, personal. I always admire the people who have made it: Mr. Money Mustache, Root of Good, Retire by 40, and Mr. 1500 are just a few of the bloggers who inspire me. I started following them when I ...

My 2018’s resolutions will have to include publishing more posts. I have been MIA the past couple of months…well maybe more than a year to be honest. Once you stop writing, it’s hard to start writing again. It feels a bit weird starting to share again. But honestly, it’s very much like running. Once I finish running, I feel great. ...

Just finished a pretty rough week. Well, actually most weeks have been pretty rough lately. Today being Friday though, my mood did improve. I smiled, I laughed….I did a great job of faking it today!!! Payday is 10 days away! I wanted to write a quick post to warn people. Corporate america is very cut throat. It’s all about numbers. ...
