Re: how old are you?

29...hoping to possibly reach FIRE while I'm 30 if my current major project comes in like I expect (and I get the bonus that I deserve)...should know in June, and will likely spend the next 6 months afterwards simply playing the waiting game to get what's coming to me before I send out my resume and change careers...

Start stretching! "Stretching Scientifically" and Jolie Bookspan's articles (scroll about halfway down the page).

800 mg of ibuprofen helps the process along, of course...

I forget who said it, but the quote "Sitting in front of the tv eating ice cream never made me feel bad, either immediately or the next day".

Re: how old are you?

Just turned 42 a month ago , and I'm just runn'in up the score until I feel the diminishing returns of a regular job. Will probably FIRE at 45.
