Housing Dilemma

Now that I have permanently moved to my new city, it’s time to start looking for a multi-family rental property to buy! I am determined to succeed this time after I failed to buy a property in my old city earlier in 2016. I love only paying $400 in rent to live in my friend’s … Read more…

Life After FI

I harbor a secret addiction to Broadway musicals. I mean, the entire reason I’m going to London in October is to see the Harry Potter play in West End.

I started my new position at work 2 weeks ago, and a conversation I’ve had with many different people usually goes like this: “How long have you been working here? What did you do in your last position? How long are you here with us? What do you want to do when you’re done with … Read more…
