The Great American Roadtrip, part II


So, it’s been a year. A YEAR!!! Since we posted last, and yes last time we were in Europe. Wow! what a year it’s been. I wanted to give a little bit of an update, and by little bit, I mean the first edition of catching everyone up to what we’ve been up to and what’s changed. So, after we…

Hello, It’s me.


I was wondering if after all these *months* you’d like to meet. Hello. Can you hear me? Actually, I should ask, do you remember me? I know it’s been a hot minute since I posted last. Let’s just say that life got in the way. Now, I have a million and one ideas of things that I want to post…

3 Thoughts from 3 Months


I just looked back on our last published post… it was in the beginning of August. So, for that I apologize. That being said, I wanted to fill you in on things that have happened in the mean time. It’s been quite a change. We’re finally getting to sit, to unwind and to actually write on the blog. We’re in…

Expectations and Reality


Last time, we let everyone know our plans. We’re packing up… We’re moving. We don’t know where, we don’t really know when we are going to settle down. And if you remember, at the end of the last post, I mentioned I was going to be giving my notice. This was something that I had definitely been contemplating for a…

Turning the Page


As I sit here, sweating after helping the multitude of strangers load our furniture and belongings into their car and drive away, I can’t help but think: Are we doing the right thing? Wait, let’s rewind a bit. It’s been almost 2 months since we’ve posted last. That’s quite a bit of time to take a break considering for the…

I Love Books!!


We talked recently about the power of being a contrarian. The idea is that you need to be able to break any theories you have in order to strengthen them. You need to find the limits, you need to find the errors in your thinking. But, what if there was a way that you could find these errors, yet do…

You’re Average, So Am I


Average is an interesting term. The truest definition is: Average: a level (as of intelligence) typical of a group, class, or series https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/average That’s it, it means typical. But oddly that term has come to imply bad, or not good enough. Why would you just want to be Average?? Average is awful. I’m sitting here writing this in a coffee…

Finding Good Prices on Flights


We in the waffle kingdom like to do a bit of traveling. In the last 18 months, we’ve been to Cambodia, South Africa, Cuba, and India along with several other places domestically. And while, yes, you can travel based on travel reward points, and yes, we have acquired shit ton of the past two/three years. Sometimes it just makes sense…

The Power of the Contrarian


I was at a meet up recently, and I got into a discussion with someone sitting across the table in the brewery. He made the claim that, “I need to buy a house because that is the best way to get rich.” Now, if you’ve been around here for a while, you know my thoughts on real estate, at least…

On Being Flexible and Stoic


The great twentieth century philosopher Mike Tyson once said “Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the face.” The story behind that quote is fantastic. He was being interviewed about an upcoming fight, and the reporters where asking how he was going to handle all these plans that had been publicized by his opponent. His response was perfect,…
