Re: Niemand's Journal

In stark contrast to weed growth, I'm happy with the way the edibles are going. Financials Since this journal is now about a year old, i...

Re: May update

I'm up 5kg since I started lifting and it turns out 5kg on someone very skinny is noticeable since people start to comment. I salute you, sir! 5 kg of muscle on a skinny frame and on a vegan diet is no small feat. Like your journal title aptly states: “mode: hard” . I really admire your level of co...

Stopping by to say I really enjoy your journal. You’re posting photos of many places I’m familiar with . . . I feel obliged to say that I always post the pics of the good times, but that usually is 1.5 days out of the two weeks trip :lol: The rest is a hellish mix of jet lag, an average of 10 flight...

Re: DutchGirl's journal

Quitting at 200k and supplementing with 2-5k pa sounds like a good option. Maybe you could scale up your side income? Or do something fun that brings in a little money as well. Or something not fun but well-paid that doesn’t take too much time and has lots of flexibility. Myself, I tried out freelan...

Re: An American Millennial

The world is war ... That’s all true and disappointing to realise how the real world works and how the old rules from school don’t apply here anymore. Let’s mourn about that. And then let’s move on. I think you’re doing well Viktor K. And so do you THF. Although it may not always feel that way.

I like how you optimise your current accumulation situation. What is your end game though? Will you move back to your rural property eventually? With Feb 2021 you’re a couple of months ahead of my own timeline. I like your idea on hitching a ride with a not-for-profit like the Red Cross. The experie...

Good to hear that you’re getting help from a psychiatrist. All the best with your lifestyle business ideas, just be realistic with the probabilities, it’s a winner takes all game, not easy to crack. On the other hand: what’s there to lose? And +1 on having someone to share your path with. What were ...

Listen to everything Edith said. You said you’re depressed. Like in depression-depression? Have you seen a professional? Have you got a diagnosis?

Re: Method to minamize yard work

- Use screening/fencing to block your garden from the public/neighbours’ eye, giving you the option to be lazy without the city coming after you. - If you must have grass, have a variety that grows very slowly like a tall fescue grass and you won’t have to do much mowing. - Have only hardy plants su...

Yes, external conditions relevant, but they are only one component, not the solution and not sufficient on their own for contentment.

As you are contemplating your future life, I hope you will avoid the mistake to believe that there could be some external condition that will make you happy/content.
