Progress to Financial Independence- May 2018

Spring is here in Eastern NC and the weather has been wonderful lately. Whitney and I haven't published many posts this past month, and much of that is due to us having busy weekends (combined with being lazy :D). In the evenings during the week we have been making sure to get all of our … Continue reading Progress to Financial Independence- May 2018

Progress to Financial Independence- April 2018

April was a busy month for Whitney and me. We had a lot going on with dieting, trip planning, and working. We started the month with a wonderful Easter dinner with some friends that we made in the area. It can be difficult being away from family for holidays but making friends in the travel … Continue reading Progress to Financial Independence- April 2018

Progress to Financial Independence- March 2018

End of Q1 We're already at the end of the Q1 for 2018 and time seems to really be flying by lately. I think part of the reason for that is the fact that we have been working quite a bit on planning our upcoming international trip and also working on the blog in the … Continue reading Progress to Financial Independence- March 2018

Progress to Financial Independence- February 2018

February may be the shortest month of the year, but this February was eventful. Whitney and I found out that our current contracts would be extended until the end of June, which is perfect for us since we won't have to look for new jobs before our big trip in July. The one stipulation for extending … Continue reading Progress to Financial Independence- February 2018

Progress to Financial Independence- January 2018

January was a busy month on the blog as you guys probably already know. I published 10 new articles on this site in January and the blog got the most views and new followers in one month since inception. I did several podcast interviews in December and January and most of them were published in … Continue reading Progress to Financial Independence- January 2018

Progress to Financial Independence- December 2017

For this month, let's start off with my finances, after all that's probably the reason you clicked on this post in the first place. December resulted in another 1% increase in the S&P 500 which capped off 2017 with a total gain of almost 20%! That's the largest yearly gain since 2013. The bull market … Continue reading Progress to Financial Independence- December 2017

Progress to Financial Independence- November 2017

In November, Whitney and I weren't quite as busy and spent more time focusing on working out, dieting and relaxing. We both had a couple weigh ins we needed to meet for our HealthyWage challenges, and Whitney decided to do a three day fast, both for health benefits and to meet her weigh in goal. … Continue reading Progress to Financial Independence- November 2017

Progress to Financial Independence- October 2017

Everything changed for us since last month. We were planning to take the entire month of December off to spend time at home and then head to Arizona in January, but we had a very good offer pop up out of nowhere a few weeks ago. Now instead of taking the whole month of December … Continue reading Progress to Financial Independence- October 2017

Progress to Financial Independence- September 2017

I'm very late in posting my update this month with no real good excuse, but I'll throw some out anyway: I've been spending 5 days per week in the gym for the last two months trying to get back in shape. On average I'm spending about 2 hours there in the evenings after work between … Continue reading Progress to Financial Independence- September 2017

Progress to Financial Independence- August 2017

Summer is coming to an end and the days are getting shorter. Although the weather this time of year is great (chilly nights/mornings and warm afternoons), I always get a little depressed when it starts getting dark before 8 PM again. We are still on our contract in western NC, and this area is amazing. … Continue reading Progress to Financial Independence- August 2017
