Is it too early for me to purchase my first home?

September 29, 2010

Time to help a reader out! Been getting a lot of similar questions like this lately, so figured I’d pass this along in case any of you are thinking about it too :)  And to be quite honest, I think I’m wayyyyy too jaded with home ownership right now to give a non-biased opinion! Haha… So when you’re done reading, maybe you can chime in […]

Remember when gas was like $5/gallon?

September 28, 2010

And everyone was freaking out and saying it was the death of SUVs and get ready for $10/gallon?  Hahahahaha…. Oh man, our society is so crazy sometimes.  I haven’t heard a peep about our dependency on oil in over 2 years now. (Watch, next week it explodes in my face and we’re back at $60 fill-ups again!) But I will say that it’s good to […]

Kiva – The Rock Stars of Microfinancing!

September 23, 2010

I’m officially a Kiva member! It took me only about 2 years since first hearing about ‘em, but I’m now lending and feeling damn good about it. If you recall from Twitter, I had met a partner of Kiva on my plane ride out to Poland and was enthralled before he could finish his 3rd sentence :)  This guy lived and breathed helping people!  In […]

“Easy For Me to Say”

September 22, 2010

Every now and then I get told my advice is “easy for me to say” cuz I have a lot of money saved up. Well of course it’s easy for me to say – I’m the one living through it all! :)  It doesn’t mean you’re gonna have the same results as me, or that you’ll even like what I’m saying, but it’s still what […]

I probably shouldn’t be blogging about this, but F it. It’s my blog and I can cry if I want to. All our benefits are going away!!! It seems our 4 year run of fun has finally come to a close and we’ll be acting like a real business now… I can’t say it’s all that surprising, but I also don’t have to like it […]
