“Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life”

Welcome to life after the daily grind

I live in the rat race, my days are filled with email, politics and pointless meetings. I often think about what makes for a fulfilling life while questioning society’s expectations. This blog documents my thoughts as I plan an escape to live a life less ordinary. It’s partly FIRE (Financial Independence Retire Early) and partly me writing about anything I find interesting. If you enjoy what I write, sign up for my email or drop by once a month to see what’s new.
