December, 2016 - 4%

I plan to update my journal soon. I first crossed 4% last month, but then I paid property taxes/insurance and went back over. This time feels more solid, since all my known bills are paid and I have rent coming in shortly. I used to think this moment would be like a birth, but now it feels more fluid and arbitrary.

projected 2016: <6%
2016: 7%, 72%
projected 2017: 6%, 69%

Again, bittersweet that I've predicted 6% three times now! The misclick this time comes from an increase in spending. I moved in w/ the GF after 2 years in the van. So I have increased my spending by an apparent amount via mostly rent. In the long run, if we consider finances to be joined, it's saving money, I suppose :/ Just need to convince the GF to share the van with me while she lives an otherwise normal life? Get her own van?

Of course ignoring the GF and any future spendings for starting a family, I could be right around 4% WR (also assuming ACA). I've also got a few tricks up my sleeve I'm hiding from my spreadsheets too..
