Re: Montreal Meetup - September 15

Or we can do the meeting in Ottawa. I gotta a friend in the area. Or you organize two meetings Colibri :p For July, pick a date and I'll try not to put my vacation days on it. A wednesday evening would be a wise choice :P but then it might be hard for people who live outside the city to meet. How ma...

Re: Lydz's journal

So what's up since last time? I was indeed dreaded to go back to my former job so I decided to take a leap and apply on a professional position where I'd have a steady schedule (my former position's schedule was always unpredictable from month to month with shifts starting at different times) and wh...

Re: Montreal Meetup - September 15

So let's say, Colibri you said you were gonna be in the city this summer? Why don't we plan according to those dates since no one has suggested any dates yet?

Re: Lydz's journal

What you wrote really inspires me Eureka. We're working on the baby plan but it's taking more time than expected... That's when you realize that you cannot always control life. ------- Some updates: Update on personal life: I'm taking a university course. I'm back on a quality control/assurance posi...

Re: Lydz's journal

Nice Eureka! I have so many things I'd like to accomplish such as living all around the world. I'm thinking that the best thing would be to travel with the baby while I'll be on paid maternity leave (that I'll prolong unpaid). But if the baby plan doesn't work I'm still setting a time limit for that...

Re: Lydz's journal

I wanted to come back on my expenses for moving out into an apartment. I mention I didn't have furnitures else than what I had in my bedroom. Actually that was not true. Over the last year, I knew I'd be moving out on my own. So I did what a good member of this community would do and I prepared it. ...

Re: Lydz's journal

Thanks guys for your advice. In the end, I decided not to take the job. The last interview with the president of the office was highly arrogant. Some might say he wanted to destabilize me in order to have a better margin to negotiate, but I took it as an unnecessary attack and didn't feel really goo...

Re: Lydz's journal

Hey Augustus, thanks for your advice. Well as far as commuting I would need to buy a car because the workplace is not accessible by public transport. I'll have to travel up to 30% of my time in the country to meet up with customers which might have an affect on my relationship with DH. I didn't see ...

Re: Lydz's journal

So a headhunter came to me 2 months ago and offered me an opportunity in the private biomedical sector. The job is no more about working with my tiny friends but has a good business and marketing side. I'm not sure if that job fit my values at all. However it pays almost double my actual salary whic...

Re: Guidelines to sleep deeply and restfully and wake naturally?

Try breathing techniques before sleeping. I started doing this in the summer and ever since I wake up naturally. My bf says that my breathing has changed while I sleep, it's deeper, longer. So try the following: - Lie on your back without pillow - Expel all air from lungs - Breathe in for 10 seconds...

Re: Lydz's journal

A little update is necessary I guess! So after living 5 years and a half with 5 other roommates, I decided to leave the place and downsize to 3 roommates last February. My rent is now between 315 and 400$ per month, utilities included. I got a bit sick of people moving in and out, having to explain ...

Lydz's journal

Hello all :) As many people do, I've been lurking on this forum for a couple of years now but I feel I needed to have some feedback on how I was doing towards FI. So I'm a female in my late-20s. I work full-time in a hospital with an annual gross income of 48K (net income would be about 33K). I was ...

Nice! I've been vermicomposting for a few years now but I was usually giving away those little wigglers to people. Do you sell the worms in a bin, ready to use?

<t>Otherwise... I'd say that finding a studio to rent for 500$ might be hard but can be possible if you're willing to live outside downtown area including Plateau/Mile-End, NDG, and around Jean-Talon Market. Otherwise I'm pretty sure you can easily find something for that price, + or - 50$.<br/> I g...

<r>Hi spoonman! Summer sublets in good neighbourhood can be found for that price. Last summer I rented a whole apartment with a huge bedroom/living room apart from the kitchen and 2 balconies for 500$ rent/electricity/internet all included and furnished from a couple who work outside the city every ...
