Fired up for FIRE? Too lame?
I've had a journey of becoming more financially aware. Finishing up an engineering masters and realizing all salary increase was disposable made me realize how important managing finances is and would be.
Started the journey with Financial Peace University. Moved to the Bogleheads forum where I learned a ton about investing. My journey is now coming here.
I want to be FI. Right now, I have quite a few months living expenses on hand (emergency fund + house downpayment savings). This lets me enjoy my current job a lot. Because I don't need it short-term. I'm not FI by any means but for a year or so I am
This sense of freedom is unbelievably awesome even as a 25 year old, can't imagine what it's like to actually be FIRE
No target date or anything. Currently my net worth increases by well over 2x my expenses each month from all my savings vehicles (HSA, 401k, Roth IRA, cash house savings). Might change if I meet a girl? My recent dream has been buying and outfitting a van to live in to help escape American consumerism. These are probably incompatible, hah.
Thanks for the forum, looking forward to being around
