    I haven't had to tap into mine yet so very happy about that.
    However, since I had a late start, I have had to ensure I save more out of my post tax dollars as I am not so sure that my 401(k) will have enough when I hit the age at which I hope to retire.
    Once I clear up some dead weight, it'll be easier to put some $$$ in there. It's a big reason why I calmed down on the enthusiast lifestyle.

    More stuff for the fish tank. These things are money pits, really.
    Finally finished. Added one new fish and two live plants. I should go up a tank size to add three more and some snails as bottom feeders, but I don't want to deal with the extra work right now.

    Money pits.

    Need to go fry this shrimp. Using wheat flour and Red Stripe for the batter. If it's not a trainwreck, I'll post pictures.

    I understand this with the calm down. I also feel like I'm done for a while. Starting this around the time of a recent increase like I have now, I'm not sure how it will look like for me.

    Since I'll like to also hit another financial goal (home ownership) next year or 2021 , something's gotta give.

    I surely dislike forgetting stuff I go out shopping to get specifically. SMH.

    I saw some nice summer homes this week that really has me thinking. I want to own the land the house is built on instead for my primary asset.

    I was always land ownership, not home ownership.

    Better to pay land tax and and build your home than pay a mortgage.

    Ordered a third set of tools to repair the Gear Sport. Let's hope the third time is the charm. Otherwise, I'll return these too.

    I've seen some people swap the battery and had a wireless charging coil issue too. With how the screws on mine look, I don't think it'll survive multiple openings.

    If it goes to hell in a hand basket, I'll wait and get a 42mm Galaxy watch. The 46mm turned me off for three reasons:

    1) Two toned grey silver as the only color option
    2) Overpriced
    3) Not a fan of the frontier design.

    The 42mm black makes the frontier design a bit more muted, thus tolerable for me.

    I really like the S3 classic. Really like it paired to the Mate 20 Pro.

    The idea of building your own home is as romantic as it is depressing. I’ve been in some form of construction directly or as an administrator for well over 30 years and I’ve been down that road. The fact you’re never truly “filled up” with your phone of choice lets me know your dream home built to your “specs” may also leave you unfulfilled. Bring in a wife or significant other and the exercise quickly turns to s**t.

    Not trying to knock the wind out of your sails but like The Bard famously wrote - to thine own self be true. My next dream home is a Winnebago with no rear view mirrors and a tank full of diesel.

    Your honesty has always been appreciated.

    I'm simpler for homes than I am for phones though. I'm fully aware that too custom a home isn't going to be something worth passing on to children. I'd likely just build something more generic that can be added on as needed. I just want something that's comfortable for me - nice kitchen is important so I can really see if I'm competent with fire or not.

    There's not thing romantic for me about home ownership. I get to hear my coworkers who own a home for a while and who just bought one talk about their experiences all the time. The romanticism is the land ownership.

    In terms of an actual home, I was always a beach front condo type guy anyways. But with all this climate change, I looked at the beach front properties I saw this week and shook my head as I was a bit unnerved at the idea of owning one in these times.

    No one knows what the future holds, as it's not like living in the back woods on some sprawling acreage is better.

    All I can share is "I know what it looks like and can tell you when I see it".

    Ah. My dad made the switch today officially.
    Had to use Nine to get his contacts working correctly (he's an outlook user) but T-mobile couldn't transfer his text messages.

    Thankfully I found this: https://medium.com/@leonardocezarych...d-daf53440d485

    Thank goodness for this guy.

    That app is such a lifesaver for me. I already sent my dad the digital gift card to get continued functionality in 2 weeks. I'm hoping that it will appear by morning. If I knew that my dad was going to do this today, I would have just picked up a card from the grocery store. Nine is for contacts and calendar and Outlook is for the actual emails.

    As for apps, I added a News app for him, which is Microsoft News since that was his news source on his Windows Phone.

    Beachfront? Too much maintenance. Even the slightest nick or scratch on a finish turns to rust in days. But the views.....

    Why not write a blog post about the different options of what type of area/home appeals to you and weigh up the different options.

    Maybe add in what difficulties you think you may encounter as part of your buying land and building your own house.

    Just thought.

    Lived breach front. Can verify that salt spray is the most corrosive stuff on the planet. We're taking oceanic of course.

    When you're driving through what you think is mist and it turns out to be salt spray and your see how far it goes inland you realise that however nice ocean front is it's a maintenance nightmare.

    I think I'm going to be a bit more serious with my blogs. At some point I'll just do the subscriptions for all three sites. The one I have posted here will be the most frequent. The food and photo ones will be a bit less frequent.

    It's part of a few shifts I need to quietly make.
