The FI life is weird. The more I delve into all of this, the weirder things seem. What do I mean by that? Each blogger has their own take on things. Some follow Mr. Money Moustache’s rules to the letter, others are doing their own thing. Some have decided the ex-pat life is for them,Continue reading “The FI Word Is Weird”
For those of you that don’t know, house hacking is buying a home and getting enough roommates to live with you and pay enough rent so you no longer have to contribute. It’s basically living for free. While I love the concept, I very much do not like the idea of sharing my home withContinue reading “House Hacking”
We have officially made it to another year. So far, I haven’t gotten COVID, which is a damn miracle at this point. Omicron is rearing its ugly head, but that’s okay, I have an excellent immune system (which is seriously the only reason I haven’t gotten it yet). I have been thinking about this blogContinue reading “It’s a new year.”
Just now, after opening my first ever Questrade account, I checked to see if it had been approved or not. I was expecting an email but for some reason, one didn’t come. Sure enough, it had been approved. On Thursday, I thought I’d take a look at the only retirement account that I knew existedContinue reading “More good news”
The other day, I received an email from my renter’s insurance provider. It told me that my policy was due for renewal, and that they’d made some changes to the coverage. The changes they’d made increased the monthly premium by a good $35. I wasn’t interested in that, and besides, I had some coverage IContinue reading “Good news”

I thought it was interesting enough to investigate, so I did a deep dive on both YouTube and in the blogosphere. On one of the many YTContinue reading “F.I.R.E.”
As I begin this journey, I have been thinking a lot about switching to an electric vehicle. My current 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Luxury is an insane gas sucker. I am so disappointed in myself that I trusted my sales guy to give me a good deal. The more research I do on it,Continue reading “EV Vehicles and Rebates”

Sometimes you don’t know that it’s fear that’s holding you back. Sometimes you are acutely aware of it. For instance, I neverContinue reading “Fear”
Day 1 of no more McDonald’s coffee: I spent the entire morning from the moment I woke up until I was 10 minutes before leaving the house to decide that I want some form of financial independence more than I want a McDonald’s coffee. I took my home made coffee to work, drank it, andContinue reading “Breaking up with addiction”
I love comfort. That simple statement carries a lot of weight, because it basically defines my life thus far. In what way, you might ask? Well, look at that shot above. I have struggled since I was 12 years old (puberty) to sleep properly. I know now that it was likely undiagnosed anxiety. My motherContinue reading “Comfort and Habits”
