Life has been pretty great lately. I’m too happy to wrap my mind around a whiny post today.
I’m amazed that I’ve almost reached the $1,000,000 mark. I pinch myself daily.
For my first 25 years of life, money was a huge struggle. We weren’t poor growing up, but we weren’t far from it. Sometimes, life was a bit miserable as my family made poor financial decisions (“We bought a timeshare!!!”).
I turned the tide in my war with money 15 year ago when I graduated college. I finished up college with $60,000 in debt, but going from making $4.25/hour in the college computer lab to a job where I was well compensated as a programmer was amazing. Still, I never thought I’d have anything close to what I do now. It is strange. Deep down inside, I still feel like that struggling college kid eating almost nothing but spaghetti because it was cheap.
But I digress.
Last weekend, I went to the MMM meetup with a group of friends (shout out to L from Longmont and B and L from Loveland). I love being around this type of crowd. I’m an introvert, but I have a hard time shutting up in a group of MMM aficionados. It was wonderful to meet with E from Denver, D and S from Boulder and E from Fort Collins. I look forward to spending time with all of you in the very near future.
Over Labor Day weekend, we went camping near Glenwood Springs, Colorado. The weather was perfect, the conversation was good and the beer was cold. Trifecta!
Don’t worry Rant Fans, Mrs. 1500 and I are working on something extra whiney for next week!
