Going into 3rd month of FIRE life
Woo, time flies! I am starting the 3rd month of my FIRE life. Do I miss work? Nope. Do I miss my colleagues? Definitely not. Do I miss the peak hour traffic? Nope. Well, I do miss having a fixed income and complimentary health care that's for sure.
Quite a few people asked me how is it like to be jobless? How am i adjusting to life? Frankly speaking how much adjustment do you need to not work? I didn't need much adjustment, I was made to not work. LOL. It's like fish in water.
For the first month of my FIRE life, I basically spent most of the time working out and also hiking around Singapore with a friend who was having his final month of study break. Just when I thought things will start to slow down going into August, I was informed that I got an exam slot for the RES course on 20th of Aug. So ended up studying for 2 weeks going into the Exam severely under prepared. Sadly, don't think I will pass. Hopefully I get at least 1 paper out of the way.
Then finally the exam is done and my boy decided to fall sick and was unable to go to school for the past 10 days or so, coupled with school closures. Now, here I am, already in my 3rd month.
I also started an IG account. I feel very old in that platform. All the early 20s, late teens already talking about FIRE and all. Very discipline! When I was that, all I was thinking about was to go clubbing, to zouk mambo jambo, mdm wong and newsroom bar. Yes, I am that old. That street has been totally revamped.
I am falling behind in terms of my work out. It's supposed to be an everyday thing. Did not happen.
Well, such is life. Things can deviate from plan and it all depends on how we maneuver around and make the best of it.
Here's to a slower 3rd month.
