Going Dark

The blog has been quiet for a while. I had some posts planned, but I got distracted. Distracted by real estate.

I realized that one of my main criticisms with the FIRE movement was the so-called "scarcity mindset" of it. It's very much a movement where I feel as though if you walked by an old penny on the ground in a parking lot, the would tell you you're crazy if you don't stop and pick it up because it's tax-free money!!! *eye roll*

I'm very tired of being broke from my 7 years of graduate education and two years of residency. I was feeling pulled more towards an "abundance" mindset. Now I'm not all hippy-dippy-woo-woo, like I don't sit around and meditate on the abundance of the universe or anything, but basically, I want to take some risks and make some money, and keep going to Starbucks. That's me and YMMV.

So yeah, I've gotten real distracted by real estate lately. You must understand that when I get fixated on something, I'm like a rabid pitbull with a lamb shank in my mouth. I DO NOT LET IT GO. In the past month, I've went from 0 properties to three duplexes under contract and scheduled to close in the next month. My reading and podcast listening and attendance at local real estate, landlording, and investment groups have went through the roof. I'm all in.

Right now I'm through the most time-intensive parts (the looking, offering, insuring, inspecting, etc.) and am just kind of waiting to see what the bank and whoever else needs from me to close these suckers, so here I am doing another blog post.

Hopefully there will be more blog posts to come soon, although I have big plans to pick up another 1-2 multi-family homes by the end of the year if things go well.
