So Girl Ninja came out and visited me in Europe over the last week. We rented a car for personal use and spent the last 10 days playing tourist whenever I didn’t have to work. We spent time in Bruges, Aachen, Maastricht, and Amsterdam. It was glorious.  On Friday morning, we dropped our rental car […]

Girl Ninja and I have a significant amount of our net worth sitting as cash in a “high yield” savings account. It’s exciting that we are just a few weeks away from hitting our $100,000 savings goal, but it’s also terribly depressing to know this money has earned a paltry 0.8% over the last couple years. […]

I am literally curled up under a blanket right now in the back of my SUV with Girl Ninja (we are camping). It’s 5:33 am and for some reason I’ve been up for 45min. Part of me thinks my lack of sleep is inversely correlated to the excessive amount of mosquito bites I have on […]
