OT on FIRE


Wandering the Path to Financial Independence as an Occupational Therapist   The longer I wander down the path to financial independence, the more I find people from various different professions.  Many of which are in tech or software development, accounting or finance, or are lawyers, doctors, or physicians. I’ve even found a bunch of physical therapists who are pursuing FI.

Adventures in Anony-Blogging


We’ve Been Outed   As you could tell from Mr. Wow’s latest post, we are wandering again.  Because of this, today’s post will be a short, but fun one.  It all happened a few months back.   Tales of Being an Anonymous Blogger   Like many others in this blogosphere, the Mr and I have chosen to remain anonymous.  While…

We find that this happens especially with songs.  We’ll hear a lyric and automatically assume that…

From Renting to ‘Rents and Back (Part 2)


In my last post I set the stage for how Mr.Wow and I decided to move back in with my parents. Today I’m going to hash out how it went and what the take-aways were.  I think it is also time for a change from Mr. Wow’s dense and lengthy informative small business series to something (hopefully) a little more amusing. …

From Renting to ‘Rents


Two years ago, Mr. Wow and I did something crazy!  Something neither one of us ever thought we would do, especially within our adult and married life. We were in an interesting spot in life.  A few big changes had already occurred and we were looking to make a few more. During and after college, we had both lived with…
