Just for the fun of it....

January 21st, 2013 at 02:45 pm

Hey gang. Is this thing on? Hello? Did my password work? I guess so!

So, uh, hey, how's everybody on here? Better than ever I hope.

Not that I expect anyone to remember me, but I remember you guys!

I'm still around, occasionally lurking and reading the blogs, though I admit not daily like I used to. I imagine that I've probably missed quite a bit.

So yeah, if you've got some free time (like me right now), feel free to leave me a comment about how your life is going. Would love to hear all about it!

As for me, I'm still around. Let's see. I'm working. I'm at work, slacking off while blogging. Haha.

I work out now. 4 to 5 days a week. Trying to get a handle on that because apparently, there is quite a bit involved. In particular, diet is a huge component, but it isn't easy to be frugal there. Especially if you also prefer the fresh, organic stuff.

Family is also puttering along. My parents are planning to retire some time this year. They say their finances are ready. I'm a bit skeptical but I have full faith in them.

I am still fumbling with the stock market, but I think I am on the verge of stopping so I can focus on my career more. Until then, Come on, NVDA! The story is great, and your growth potential is promising. Why can't you just go up already?!

Ahem.

So that's what's going on in my life. Overall, I have to admit that I am not as frugal as I used to be. Well, I am still monitoring my money of course, and trying to grow my net worth, but now I'm trying to be less uptight about money? Like, spending it when it matters, such as a healthier diet, minimal workout equipment, and work-related costs.

Oh and video games. Yes, it's horrible. I have a problem. Well, I still buy them when on sale, but I can quit anytime I want! Tomorrow maybe.

There is a part of me that feels kinda bad about not having been around for you guys in all these years. I hope nobody actually feels like, hey, this jerk abandoned us, and now he's back to post? Screw him! Actually, if anyone actually felt that way, I will totally understand, and I do apologize. I owe many of you a lot for helping me get through one of the darkest patch in my life.

How I feel about letting you guys down.

But most likely, I'm betting that most people won't even remember who I am. BA who? Whatever! In which case, my response is, "Good!" That is exactly who I am. Just another guy out there, struggling to stay on track. Life is just way too short and precious to go screw it up now. And that's all that I'm trying to do too. Keep it on track.

Aaaand I have to confess that, although I will always stay loyal to the frugal code, well, my interests currently lie elsewhere, but it does involve working on my career and improving income.

Anyways, it's time to put my snorkel back on and wade back into the sea of life. Before I disappear again, if anyone has any lingering, morbid questions for me or about me, then feel free to ask and I'll try to respond within the next few days.

Again, I hope all of you are doing well and will continue to do better. Thanks again for all your help. I am absent but haven't forgotten. Take care now!

Update: Since enough people have asked about my uh closet experience, I've decided to share a photo of it. Seriously though? That's what I am being remembered as? That crazy closet guy who lives in a closet? Not my many other adventureous exploits, heoric daring-do, or how I've saved all almost 15% by switching to Geico? This? Wow, I don't know what to make of you guys. Haha. Enjoy.
