Adult Goals: July 2018

July is done and dusted, and I got to pretend to be a 'real adult' that has my life together - beyond my finances. Writing this blog for almost two years may have given the misguided impression that I'm organised, but beyond the dollars in my bank account I still act like a teenager whose just gotten out of home. Hence, this six months of building good habits while building dollars.

Life updates and new goals: Eggs, AI and being a Proper Adult

Life has been wonderfully hectic for the last few of months, and everything has been coming together in July. It's time to set some new goals, and give an update on how life has been.

The best news? I FINALLY signed the paperwork on a new role. Which not only means a payrise, but means a massive career jump and a huge improvement in my day-to-day live.

The Year of Investing - May 2018

So uh.. I may have bought lots of things. And a fair bit of stuff. And I did some manufactured spending to hit credit card minimum spends. And then I bought some more bits and pieces.

I may have disengaged the frugal auto-pilot for a month. Woops.

The Year of Investing - April 2018

Well that was a weird month. If March was a financial trainwreck, then April tried to one-up it was unpleasant life events. Thankfully by the end of the month it all settled down and I still kicked plenty of goals, but what a roller coaster!

How money in the bank got me a Great performance review

A couple of weeks ago I got to sit through the joyous quarterly occasion that is a performance review. Of course, we don't call them that because a positive outlook is everything so we call them Inspiration Sessions!! Well, not quite, but it's a similarly pompous name.

I'm not one of the FIRE bloggers who loves their job and says they'd keep working even with money in the bank. I'm one of those FIRE bloggers who checks their numbers every Monday and sighs before opening the job pages and seeing if something else has come up before eventually getting down to work for the day.

But, despite all this, I still got a Great outcome in my performance review thanks to my FIREy pursuits.
