The neighborhood you live in is hugely important regardless of the city in which you live. It influences nearly every aspect of your day-to-day life.

If you read enough about people’s experiences living in big cities, you’ll come across plenty of stories about how people decided to leave them. Many times, these “why I left [insert big city here]” stories include a pivotal moment when the protagonist reached a breaking point. They’ll talk about the cab that splashed them on... ...

I love running by the river as the sun is rising on a beautiful New York morning. I see the water rushing by with endless, unmatched strength. I see the imposing bridges spanning the water, examples of human imagination and will. I see architectural marvels rising dramatically on its shores, each one taller than the... ...

We find ourselves in troubled economic times. The UK might already be in a recession. Germany’s GDP just contracted for the first time in the last ten years.

I’ve been pursuing financial independence in one form or another for seven years. During that time, I’ve been the beneficiary of excellent career luck and a historic bull market.

A couple of years ago, I thought about switching my primary banking to Fidelity. The switch would make it easier to transfer money from checking into my investment accounts, which meant I was likely to invest more.

What did you snag on Prime Day this year? I didn’t pick up anything this time, though I have in the past. Part of the reason I didn’t buy anything is that I don’t have Amazon Prime anymore. As I near the end of my 20s, I find that I own everything I need to... ...

I turn 29 today. 29 isn’t a particularly remarkable birthday and not one about which people typically make a big deal. But this year, I wanted to take a moment to take stock what I’ve learned so far. What follows are thoughts, admonitions, and wisdom that I’ve accumulated over the course of my life. My... ...

My social life has always felt a little bit fragmented. Like most people, I have a lot of interests and hobbies. Like some people, I’ve lived in several different places over the past few years. Those stops led me to accumulate a lot of relationships with people that don’t overlap with one another. There are... ...

What does your normal day look like? Here’s mine: I wake up, do my morning routine, head to the office, work for a while, take a walk, finish up work, walk home, and make myself dinner. After dinner I read until it’s time to go to sleep. The normal day I just described includes: Strenuous... ...
