I decided to take stock (heh) of all my different bank accounts recently and see if I could clean things up a bit. Spoiler alert: no I couldn’t. But it made for a fun post. Tl’dr here, you’re welcome. Further details below. 🇨🇦 Canada 🇨🇦 TD Bank One of the Big 5. My parents use… Read The post All my bank accounts and what I do with each one appeared ...

Happy new year dear reader! May 2020 be the best year for all of us yet. Spendings tend to go a little a lot out of control around the Holidays and I’m no exception. Let’s see how I fared this holiday season. Spending Report: $2542.78 Top 3 expenses for December in descending order: Tuition ($1155CAD,… Read The post Finance review: December 2019 appeared first on o n e c u ...

There was a two week period in November during which I woke up at 2-3 am every night without fail feeling anxious. My heartbeat slowly spread until it took over my entire body. In the cool darkness of my bedroom, I wondered if I would be stuck this way forever. People experience anxiety in different… Read The post Garden variety anxiety appeared first on o n e c u p ...

Spending Report: 590.83 The single most costly thing this month was renewing my VPN subscription for roughly $120CAD. I briefly debated not having it as the school wifi came with VPN, but it has come in handy to have two before. I bought more clothes these 4 months than all of last year combined. That… Read The post The month in review: November 2019 appeared first on o n e ...

Spending Report: 674.79 Here’s what it looks like without the savings rate. There’s an increase of roughly $30 from August which seems inconsequential, but I fear a slippery slope situation where I keep on letting things slide and then suddenly I’m only saving $1000 every month (!!!). Yes, yes, boohoo, worried about saving only 85%… Read The post The month in review: October 2019 appeared first on o n e ...

Forgive the late-ness of this post, it’s taking me a while longer than expected to settle into a new routine. I’ve been occupied for much of September so a warning that there will be no spending report for September because life happens the way life wants it to. Spending Report: 1793.32 (634.02) Here’s what it… Read The post The month in review: August 2019 appeared first on o n e ...

Spendings report: $1, 033 July is my vacation month, I didn’t work and had a month to cram in as much socialising as I can before heading back to China August 1st. I’m quite impressed that I didn’t go overboard and blow like $2,000 in one go. About $200 worth of purchases were made with… Read The post The month in review: July 2019 appeared first on o n e ...

I went to Vietnam 4 months ago and finally came around to writing this. I still haven’t unpacked all my feelings about the trip but figured it’s overdue and whatever I’ve got is good enough. If you like big cities, then this is the place to go for your next adventure. HCMC is vibrant, full… Read The post Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam appeared first on o n e c ...

Slowly but surely working towards my goal of $50k by the end of this year 🙂 I’m going to bundle these updates together with the Month in Review posts since I’m already putting my spending report there. It’s not terribly exciting to see a dry summary of my net worth every month (sorry if you’re… Read The post Net Worth Update: May 2019 appeared first on o n e c ...

It’s been 9 months since I came to China and went on a low-news diet. It was very involuntary at first, I assure you – I made the wrong choice of VPN providers. But it all worked out because it’s been very good for my mental health and productivity. I have no idea what’s going… Read The post 9 Months Low-News Diet appeared first on o n e c u ...
