Good day !

Post by GreenGentleman »

Hey good people, quick introduction who I am.

Did over a decade of education in Biology, during masters participated in a student competetition which made me realize the career options in Biology aren't for me.
Made a switch with a bootcamp to back-end programmer and worked that job for the past 3 years or so.
The job is alright, colleagues are fun, the time invested sucks (at 36h, next year 32h).

The last few years life accelerated, bought a house this year, grown-up job and all that stuff.
Still negative networth from student loans (0% interest so not paying these off in a hurry).
I've been fascinated with FIRE for the past 3 years (fancy that, when I start my real job! Funny coincidence).
Never liked spending (or earning) money, the dream is not thinking about money at all.

Got a moderately sized house.
Looking to have kids in the next year or so.
Decent income.
No car (cycle everywhere)
Moderate food budget, mostly home cooked.
Girlfriend is on board.

There you have it, a quick overview of me in relation to FIRE, looking forward to explore ERE.
I'll likely start my own journal as well, seems nice to have some logs in relation to this adventure.
