Bio not provided
I started with a double major but dropped it so I could work while in college, which in turn got me out of college debt free. Now that I don't use my degree much, I wouldn't go back to school but try to keep learning outside of it.

triple commute time, when it is dark and cold, sounds like hell. What time does the sun rise? In Europe it is getting clear around 8am this time of year, I find it so hard to wake up when it is still dark...

I was mostly motivated by the online calculators saying how much $100 saved would be worth in 45 years. Any $100 was a step toward freedom.

I’ve been looking at the baggage fees more lately, on normal US companies you have an 80lb allowance from Guatemala to Europe and it is worth paying extra if you bring a lot of things with you. They also cut you some slack on the carry on’s size.

I get bored after 6 months haha. My last job I got three raises over the first year for a total of 35% so I stuck to it for another year, then got too bored and it was harder to get big raises so I left.

The less distractions the better. I run everything from my computer but if I was stretched for time, I would probably have two computers, one for work with no social media or movies or anything on it, and one for fun. It is too easy to switch to something more fun otherwise.

I use a mix of kerosene and vegetable oil to give a new shine to furniture. With gas prices so high it isn’t really cheap but it works better than most products and the smell goes away quickly.

In France you get 10 hours per year worked that you can dedicate to any personal training. A friend is learning Portuguese, another one upholstery, and their company is paying for it.

Thank you for the mention. You get winter really soon. I was in Seattle once in June and it was still really cold, with snow in the mountains, I thought I would have a really hard time with such little sun.
My way to deal with being overwhelmed: avoidance. lol. not good at all but you are not superman so tackle one thing and keep moving, before you know it, you'll be done.

We do most things from scratch and the products in Guatemala are prime quality. Now when I go back to Europe I almost never eat meat, is is overpriced and pretty bad taste-wise.

If you work for yourself there are also a lot of deductions, from your internet plan to part of your mortgage or rent if you use your house as your office. Savings can be big.

I have a 16 year old brother so I take him out once in a while and always cringe at the cost of the brand clothing he wants or places he wants to go to. When I was a teen I was always out with my parents, plus the private school and the extra curricular activities and yes, the braces, it must have cost them a fortune!
