People call it the Boston accent. It’s not an accent. It’s a whole city of people saying most words wrong. Louis C.K. When we landed in Boston Logan International Airport back in 2015, I was trying to mentally prepare myself for Boston and the weird way they mispronounce every second word, and admittedly at first we did find it kind of jarring, but after about five minutes our reaction to the Bostonian accent morphed from “annoyance” to “hilarious.” Notable examples: Lady walking around parking lot with her husband: “Where’s the caaahhh?” Twenty-year-old at a bar: “I go to Haaahhhvard.” Older […]

Why the FIRE Space is Full of Introverts

FIRECracker is a world-travelling early retiree. She used to live in one of the most expensive cities in Canada, but instead of drowning in debt, she rejected home ownership. What resulted was a 7-figure portfolio, which has allowed her and her husband to retire at 31 and travel the world. Their story has been featured on CBC, the Huffington Post, CNBC, BNN, Business Insider, and Yahoo Finance. To date, it is the most shared story in CBC history and their viral video on CBC's On the Money has garnered 4.5 Million views.

Do you hate phone calls? Does the idea of a party give you hives (even before the pandemic)? Do you equate small talk to being waterboarded? If you answered yes to these questions, you might be an introvert. Even though introverts only make up 33% of the general population, they are the overwhelming majority in the FIRE space. Why? Well, as someone who is both extroverted and introverted (also known as ambivert), I tapped into my introverted side during this lockdown (because what else is there to do?) to find out exactly why the FIRE space is packed with introverts.

Are you ready, America? Tomorrow, voters officially go to the polls and after that, everything in the world’s largest and most important democracy changes. It wasn’t that long ago (thought it FELT like ages) since Trump’s come-from-behind upset victory over Hillary Clinton in 2016 turned the entire world upside down and sparked our national addiction to Twitter and Xanax. The similarities between that election and this one are striking. Like then, every credible poll is predicting not only a Democratic victory, but a landslide. Like then, an established Washington insider with decades of experience is running against a blow-up-the-establishment bomb-throwing […]

With covid-19 wave 2 upon us, I’m going a bit batty. The first wave was already cray cray but the second wave is so much worse. For example, here’s what happened the other day. One of my Chautauqua friends taught me how to properly maximize value out of Uber Eats and in true FIRECracker fashion, I drove that strategy straight into the ground, turning it so competitive, it was no longer fun. At 9:30pm, I realized I had a big, juicy $50 Uber Eats coupon I forgot about, and it was going to expire in precisely 30mins. Most people would […]

God, I haven’t done one of these posts in a while. I really don’t want to do one of these posts. After the exhausing spectacle of 2016 when Republicans, having just seized control of the House of Representatives, the Senate, and the Presidency, tried again and again to make good on their promise to repeal and replace Obamacare, only to be thwarted by the slimmest of margins. Despite having a majority in the Senate, 3 Republicans, Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, and John McCain, surprised everyone by breaking party ranks to vote against the repeal measure. And in 2018 when the […]
