Happy to have discovered this forum, and would contemplate starting a journal here one day, but as a brief intro, I am: a UK undergad student in my early 20s, still not sure what to do after I graduate; rather regretting studying humanities which I have decent grades in but not much interest in. (Missing the sciences to be honest, but couldn't think what to specialise in when it came to choosing a degree, and felt like an impostor since I was terrible at practical exams). On the plus side, I have been able to take a year out to work and study abroad so am currently doing that, which also gives me some time to think about the future before I graduate.
I am super frugal, which makes me wonder if early retirement could one day work for me, since I don't want to end up stuck in an office, but then again maybe I could just take the route of not choosing a job that is too heavily office-based in the first place... so the next step is just to keep defining more clearly my lifestyle, career and financial goals.
Some random asides just for fun:
- I discovered MMM's blog after finding ERE so am a fan of that too. I am starting to wonder, however, where the women personal finance bloggers are at though, and would be curious to find some good ones (yes, I am female).
- I almost went for a more obvious 'supertramp' related username, but guessed in a space like this there would probably be one or two supertramps around already. 'Into the Wild' is one of my favourite books. It was the first book I ever bought for myself in fact (love books but I'm a library fan), and something stops me every time I try to get rid of it. I think I am a supertramp at heart.
- I'm currently fascinated by boats, vans and tiny houses.
