Updating My Chart – May-August 2017

By | September 4, 2017

This reminder popped up for me recently: Check your net worth, my darling! Oh. Right. It’s September. Another four months of living and not working and it’s time to write another post updating my progress on this early retirement experiment. This is normally my best shot at evangelizing. Look, it’s working! Truth be told, I… Read More »

My Denver bucket list

By | August 21, 2017

I recently spent five months in the Denver area. I shared with you my Denver bucket list in a previous post. In this post, I’ll tell you how I fared. Whoop! 1. Cross off bucket list item #44 (fall responsibly in love). I did not cross this off. I didn’t come even remotely close to crossing… Read More »

Remember that everyone is a person

By | August 14, 2017

This is my last article on dating for a while because I’m getting a wee bit sick of myself with this topic. My friend Dan made an observation a while back that stuck with me. This was via Gchat, so it’s an exact quote. “I’m so goal-oriented that when my goal was meeting someone, I… Read More »

Book Reviews – August 2017

By | August 7, 2017

It’s book review time! I recommend the last two, but not the first two. Huh, I only read four books this month and two were in the span of two days. That’s not very impressive. What did I do with the rest of my time? The Portable Veblen, A Novel by Elizabeth McKenzie  Quirky girl who… Read More »

Book Reviews – July 2017

By | July 14, 2017

Lady luck and the universe conspired to test my coping skills recently and everything I wrote turned out really negative and complainy, not worthy of littering your inbox. Over the course of two weeks, each and every day brought something new to mope over. My laptop died and I sprained my toe, cutting me off from… Read More »

Book Reviews – June 2017

By | June 21, 2017

Oh man, I just realized I haven’t logged into Goodreads in months. I’m so bad at these social medias. I just spent some time entering in my reviews trying to catch up. It’s not very fun and I don’t know how to make myself care about stuff like this. I want to care because I… Read More »

How to allocate your time while dating

By | June 13, 2017

This is one of those articles that I was rather hesitant to publish. Who the heck am I to give you advice on relationships? The idea is certifiably laughable. But I’m actively working on bucket list item #44 (fall responsibly in love) and I’m a writer and I write about my experience of the world. I’ve been… Read More »
