I like pretty things


So I haven't been keeping up with the markets and finance stuff lately. Partly it is because the wedding took over my life. And my gazillion hobbies. And also I think because I don't have an online community of people to check in with every day. I think financial independence is an important thing. There are many people who have done it, but it takes time, commitment, and remembering not to live like a wage slave. Yeah, you get a good salary from your corporate job, but then you spend it all on a new car, a mortgage, vacations. And somehow you only save 5% of it.

Anyone of you wanna be my investment/market/finance/money talking friend?

I guess I should research some online investment communities. Hrm.

I wonder if it's possible to retire on 100k.
