After my last post went live I got this text from a friend… And yesterday morning I received this DM from Mrs.1500… What??!! On Wednesday afternoon I finished a 3 day trip with a harried 11 hour day that started in Albany NY at 4:30am.  After 3 flights I landed in Chicago, rushed to my … Continue reading In Case You Missed It, I Am Financially Independent. ...

A couple months ago I was interviewed for a feature on Marketwatch and a few days ago a woman emailed me to follow up with some questions. I had no idea what was coming (I should really start asking for those questions in advance) but I figured the usual mainstream FIRE related mumbo jumbo like … Continue reading Intentionally Left Blank ...

It was a screenshot from a tweet she sent out last year… Already??!!  I remember like it was yesterday… and I wish to God I could forget the song!!

Clickbait?  Maybe… Ok, just kidding.  That is me trying to dumpster dive at Aldi…my technique could use some improvement.

Too long a title?  It’s my blog, so deal.  😉 When you take several months off between posts, it seems every post you write has a catch-up theme.  I’ll keep it brief, but this one is no different… After my road trip ended in February, I began a stage of floating.  I floated from one … Continue reading Fuck It FI aka When You Change Direction On The Path to ...
