Let’s explore this path to financial independence and the emotions that come with the journey.
This year has not gone as I imagined it would but isn’t that life. Honestly if I were given the life I’d imagined 10 years ago, I would have sold myself short. The life I imagined then was a way more basic life than I have today. This doesn’t mean that my life today isContinue reading “Too Much Change”
I recently blogged about going back to work post-FIRE and mentioned consolidating households. I didn’t realize the strong response I’d get about that. I thought I’d get a stronger reaction to going back to work. Because of the response I thought it appropriate to write a little about us moving in with my mother-in-law. FirstContinue reading “House Hacking?”
This year has been a year of change. I have said this many times this year. The changes didn’t stop when I retired either. In fact I am announcing to the FIRE world I went back to work last week after five months of no work. I’ll try my best to explain my reasons. TheContinue reading “I’m Going Back To Work.”
The other day I learned that someone I got sober with several years ago died from an overdose. Though I hadn’t talked to him in years, this came out of the blue and hit me hard. I know the statistic ‘they’ say that nine in ten people won’t stay sober, but damn. It’s made meContinue reading “Simple But Not Easy”

I have been retired for a month now. I can’t believe it! Like I said in my first week of retirement post, I am more relaxed and happier. I have had more time for projects. I have had more quality time with friends. And I have had more time for self-care. The biggest adjustment thisContinue reading “First Month of Retirement”
Imposter Syndrome may be a popular topic or this may be a topic that people don’t want to talk about but I feel that it’s important to discuss the good and the bad while on the journey to financial independence. I don’t always wanna write about how great retirement is because I don’t wanna giveContinue reading “Am I an Imposter?”
Hi and welcome back to Aha FIRE. I quit my job last week on February 1 and today I want to share with you what my experience this first week of retirement has been. Surprisingly to me it didn’t actually go as I expected. What I expected was to be bored and a little depressedContinue reading “First Week of Retirement”
If you couldn’t tell by my recent posts I have been experiencing burn out with my job. In this post I’ll tell you of some of the things that have helped me to cope with it. Some of these things just provided temporary relief while others have become staples in my daily routine. In theContinue reading “The Burn Out Cure”
Knowing when to call it quits begins once you acknowledge you are burned out. An example of this is the burnout I am currently experiencing in my corporate job. I didn’t realize it or even notice it until it was too late and I was spent. Looking back in hindsight could I have done anythingContinue reading “The signs of burnout.”
