How FIRE Changes Your Perception of Time

Back in 2014, the year before I quit my job to travel the world, there was only one picture on my phone I’d taken that whole year, and this was it: This was a bacon latte I had at a board game café in Toronto, on a rare weekend where I wasn’t working overtime or writing my first novel, finally spending time with friends. It wasn’t the best latte I’d ever had, but as far as interesting things happening in my life, this strange, confusing concoction (meat and coffee, together at last!) was it. Life was a blur back then, […]

Our 2021 Portfolio

What a year 2021 has been. A new US president. An attempted coup in Washington. The development of a miraculously effective vaccine in record time and the start of the largest global inoculation campaign in history, only to be derailed by a new super infectious variant just as the end of the pandemic looked to be in sight. To say it was all a bit head-spinning would be a massive understatement. Let’s take a look at how all this news has affected our investments.

Reflections on 2021

Today’s post will be our last of 2021, and as we all endure yet another pandemic holiday season, with a new variant threatening to put us back into lockdowns and potentially roll back all the progress and sacrifice we’ve made over the last 2 miserable years, it’s easy to get all gloomy and doomy whenever we turn on the TV or read the news. So I thought I would take this opportunity to remind everyone of some of the good things that happened in 2021 as it draws to a close. We Will Beat Omicron First of all, let’s talk […]

Reader Case: Teachers Dreaming of FIRE

Singing: “Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful, and since we’ve no place to go, time for a reader case, a reader case yo!” Hi Kristy and Bryce, I would like to first thank you for taking the “unbeaten path” and sharing your journey and knowledge with the world! We seem to have a lot in common 🙂 I also went to the University of Waterloo – but in the Arts and graduated with a degree in German History and Language. My husband and I both became teachers after the loss of our children’s fitness business and have spent […]
