Quiet Celebration

Just wanted to celebrate a little bit (obviously not around co-workers) but I'm a quarter-millionaire! Just did my monthly update, and I'm over $250k net worth (ex-equity) for the first time!

Just wanted to share the celebration with a community that understands and has been a help in getting here.

Not bad for someone who is only 31!
