Ooooh, so close to $1 million net worth... Maybe next month! (Depending on the stock market's mood, mostly).

Well done on paying down the student loans!

Too bad the market didn't cooperate...

Hurray, you (and the markets) did it!

And I like to see those student loans go down; even though the interest rate isn't really high, so it's not a huge burden on your budget anyway. But I like to see it.

Congrats on breakin the $1m. A number of UK Fire bloggers have £1m as their FI target ($1.3m), which you are not far from. The work I guess would be voluntary for you, and you could reassess your life options.

Thanks! Unfortunately here in the US, the government doesn't provide healthcare so our FI numbers are significantly higher. I don't think most people our age would consider retiring with our current net worth.
