Brave New World

Brave New World

Foreword: I was planning my return from the recent blogging hiatus for a while. I outlined a couple of posts just did not finish them. It seems I am pretty bad at planning and careful implementation. There is too much to write about and time is too scarce. The last six months were a roller coaster in almost all areas of my life. I will report about these shortly but I fear that if I don’t get back to writing…

Financial Independence Europe Podcast Appearance

Financial Independence Europe Podcast Appearance

Hello again, everyone. These are busy times in this corner of the interwebz. Today I can happily inform you that a couple of weeks ago I was invited to Europes’ best Financial Independence podcast. It is a great honor, especially that this is the only podcast which I am following ever since the beginning. Needless to say, I was super anxious as this was my first occasion speaking “publicly” in English. I was lucky as Araminta is very professional, super…

When necessities become luxuries

When necessities become luxuries

When someone mentions the word “luxury” the first things which come into mind are a holiday villa, a Lamborghini, a big pool with a bar serving fancy cocktails, champagne, and caviar. Simple things like tap water, central heating or common cars would probably not appear on that list. Despite these things became common only in the last century we are taking them as granted without a second thought. Then something happens and we are facing an unpleasant reminder that these…

Coders of Finance – VitalDollar

Coders of Finance – VitalDollar

Welcome back geeky FIRE seekers. The Coders of Finance series returns for 2019 and we kick off the year with Marc from VitalDollar.com. I just realized browsing the previous episodes that despite we are all coders how different our paths, visions, mindsets, and skillsets are. Marc just raises this diversity further. His way of running his business is truly inspiring and his achievements aren’t small wins in my opinion. So, Marc please take it over. Tell us about yourself! My name…

Does having three kids worth a free house?

Does having three kids worth a free house?

Yes, dear reader, you have read it right. That’s my question. As many of you know, despite I live in Serbia I am a Hungarian guy and count Hungary as my homeland too. Thus, every sometimes, when I cheat on my low information diet I follow the news over there. Last week the Hungarian prime minister revealed a radical family support package as part of their action plan to prevent the demographic decrease. I am not really involved in politics and…

Financial Freedom Book Review

Financial Freedom Book Review

I cannot resist kicking off this post and this year with a quote. “So many books, so little time.” ― Frank Zappa This little quote sums up pretty much my recent years. I love reading books but I have to admit that in the past two years I consumed written content mostly in form of blog posts. I am not a fan of new years resolutions so the decision that in 2019 I want to read more actual books is more…

Wrapping up the year with gratitude

Wrapping up the year with gratitude

Howdy fellas! Long time no see. As anyone can tell, this second half of the year wasn’t my most productive period in terms of blogging and otherwise. Don’t get me wrong, I am not apologizing and have no regrets. Many times I exchanged “blogging time” for simply hanging out with my wife or playing late with my daughters. Life is about priorities and we all have the same scarce resource of time which we decide where to invest. After all,…

Coders of Finance – { in·deed·a·bly }

Coders of Finance – { in·deed·a·bly }

Welcome back geeky FIRE seekers. A long time has passed since the last episode of this series. Some folks even asked me if it is over. The truth is that this series takes place in a special corner of my heart and I don’t really plan on killing it before I stop blogging, so please calm down. Today I brought you another fellow European and London based blogger who shied away so far from talking about the topic of programming in…
