Re: How to live in the moment?

why does Olaz want to live in the moment? brute subscribes to the idea that humans feel a certain why for reasons, even if they're consciously unaware of the reasons. maybe Olaz feels uncertain about his future, somewhat anxious, and therefore has a hard time stopping the planning and focusing on th...

at what point in his career is James_0011, and how long does he plan on continuing the career?
brute recommends moving to a HCOL area if in the first 1/3 of the (anticipated) career for sure, to a LCOL in the last 1/3, and in between it's a bit of a toss up.

that feel when they price their chocolate in kilograms..
even $35/kg is cheaper than quality chocolate is here. brute regularly pays $4+ for a bar (100g) of 90% Lindt.
he does not know how Lindt compares to "good" or "excellent" Swiss chocolate.
