Do You Have the Right Personality for FIRE (Part 2)?
Friend: “Why do I have to take this test? It’s so dumb.” Me: “Just do it. You know you want to.” Friend: “NO! I refuse! I REFUSE! ” Me: *Waits 24 hours. Cell phone pings* Friend: “Okay fine. I took your stupid test. Here’s what I got…” If you’re a horrible friend like me and love wasting other people’s time, you’ll get why I was so happy to get 568 Revolutionaries to fill out the quiz I wrote about last week .

“Why would I need a travel budget? I’ll just end up going over anyway. And besides, money isn’t the most important thing! Happiness is!” *starts flitting about the room like a butterfly* Comments like this from my friends used to drive me nuts! Here I am laying down a concrete, easy-to-follow plan for them to get rich but all they want to do is talk about their disgusting feelings until I want to puke all over them. And then one of our valiant Revolutionaries Eugene sent us to this “16 personalities” personality test in a comment. Now normally, I ignore these things […]

OK hello everyone and hope you’ve had a fantastic New Year’s Eve.
