What have you been doing with your spare time 523HRR? I would imagine that the 1st year was great and probably quite hard to adjust to after full time work. I'm about to take the plunge in late 2015 (with luck).

Evergreen, I've found ER to be good for the soul. Some volunteering, daily exercise / keeping fit, doing more routine things together with DW, attend all of my son's sports / school events, more connected with friends and family, lingering over meals, a little travel, regular rounds of golf, a widening social circle that did not seem possible while w*rking. Basically, every day is a Saturday. Good luck with the "plunge" next year!

Started working at 13. Worked part-time during the school year and full-time+ during summer breaks until I finished my grad degree at 23. 20 years of continuous employment since with 3 different companies.

Expect to be FIRE-able in 7 years at 50. We'll see if I pull the pin or not.

So, I expect it to be 27 career years and 10 pre-career years.

34 years of full time, 30 with a mega corp. then 3 1/2 years part time working for a contractor I used to hire when working for said mega corp, who then became my customer. Retired from full time at 56. The part time gig was timed to somewhat meet the 59 1/2 age. It also allowed me the spare time to get moved, get a home built, and get moved into it. Now....I do what DW, DS, DD, DSIL ask....which is often going fishing...so I don't complain much.
