Happy…almost fall? I’m not ready to see summer go, even in LA!! Finances Let’s get to it, shall we? My net worth dropped $6,675 this month. This month I’m NOT counting the money I have earmarked in a separate account for taxes. It doesn’t seem right. Either way, it still would have dropped over last month. (Bleep) is […] ...

I’ll bet you’re wondering what I’m meaning by that title. It’s actually a line from the 80s film, Risky Business with Tom Cruise, but in my case, it applies to what I did this past weekend. Here is what I wrote while I was there… I’m typing this on a Sunday morning in Big Bear […] ...

I would be remiss if I first didn’t bring up the multiple mass shootings in a week, but I don’t want to get too deep into it, otherwise I might go on an angry rant, and anger…at least not channeled in the right way, does nothing. I’m focusing a lot of my attention on which […] ...

This post contains f-bombs…several of them. 🙂 I think in most areas of our lives, there isn’t a real finish line (well, until you die). Sorry for being morbid. If you just lost 20 pounds, you can’t simply go back to your old ways of eating or not exercising unless you want to gain the […] ...

Hello Hello! I feel like I’ve been away so long…oh wait, I have. I pretty much skipped my June Rewind post, so I thought I’d just give you an update on the happenings in my life. Pepe For those who follow me on Facebook, I came this close to saying good-bye to my fur baby […] ...

Hey all! I wrote a guest post on VolleyCamp Hermosa. Check it out!  You’ve probably seen this before on social media: Someone posts an article about breaking the world’s record for being the youngest person to travel to every country, or how a couple retired at 30, or some other kind of success or achievement, […] ...

This is a post that has been brewing for quite some time. I wanted to feel ready—although when you’re dealing with the touchy subject of anxiety, does one ever feel ready? But, Angela from Tread Lightly, Retire Early, wrote this great post about how she fights anxiety with running—something I do too with running and other […] ...

Happy Summer everyone! Well except here at the beach, where May and June are typically overcast. It doesn’t matter…as long as I’m at the beach! Let’s get to the May rewind, shall we? May Money This month my net worth dropped a whopping $10,443. Oh goody! Much of that was stuff I couldn’t control (the […] ...

This is something I’ve been thinking a lot about lately. At the end of June, it will be a full year since I left my full-time job. Do I miss it? Barely. What I don’t miss is too lengthy to name, especially at that particular company, but I have to admit, I miss a steady, […] ...

Here’s a description of the snowball method of paying off debt. Create a list of your obligations ranked lowest to highest balance. Make minimum payments on all of them except the lowest one. Pay as much as you can on that one each month until it is paid in full. Add all of that money […] ...
