How Has Covid-19 Affected Your FIRE Journey? Part 3

Hello and welcome back to our FIRE series where we find out whether FIRE still works in a bear market by interviewing people in the community who are on different parts of the FIRE journey, Today, I want to introduce you to my friend, Patrick, whom we first met at London screening of Playing with FIRE. He also came to the London Chautauqua soon afterwards, so we’ve had a good amount of time to get to know him.

Today, we have Sandy and Belinda (note: names have been changed for anonymity), a pair of Chautauquans who are on different paths of the […]

All the Ways Travel Screws You Up

The biggest culture shock of my life happened when I was 8 years old. As far as experiences go, moving from the falling down shacks and hole-in-the-ground urinals of rural China to the skyscrapers and flushable toilets of Canada felt as alien to me as moving to the moon.  My brain nearly exploded from all the new discoveries. I touched snow for the first time. I tasted this smelly, bitter, yellow thing called “cheese”. I rode in a car with 4 wheels, no longer needing to be sandwiched between my cousin, my mom, and my aunt, while wobbling over the […]

Reader Case: House Horny in Florida

This morning I woke up and realized it’s been a long time since I did a rent-vs-buy reader case. So I thought I’d dust off the ol’ “Housing” Gmail folder and take one for a spin. I’m weird like that.

My wife and I are being tempted to buy a house (gasp!) due to rising rents and the fact that we have a little baby girl due in July 2020. We feel like we’ve been doing well in our financial situation but have gotten confused […]
