Recession, strikes and whatever the hell it was that was going on at No 10 last year. It looks like the ’70s are back, innit? #vivalabrexit, #toldyouso
How’s the progress?
The overall progress to financial independence stands at 67%. The only reason it’s up from last year is because of savings, while my so-called investment strategy lost me 8% of my total net worth. How do I feel about that? Completely and utterly indifferent.
No, I can’t explain it either. Especially since, in 2018, when my net worth was much smaller, a negative 6% rate of return felt like the end of the world, and I cried like a little bitch. And when I was done crying, I ranted and raved and blogged about it like a medium-sized bitch… And now — nothing.
I keep looking at the number representing the amount of money I lost in 2022 and asking myself — anything? But no, nothing. Just. Don’t. Givashit. Does this mean I’ve become emotionally constipated? Am I dead inside? These are the questions that keep me up at night these days, rather than my dismal investment performance. It appears HoSimpson is broken. Oh well.

Yes, it does sound like you may be dead inside, slowly rotting from the inside out, welcome to the club.
At least I’m in good company 😉
My alternative take is that you found love… 😉
(And trust me I’m a cynic so I don’t say that easily!)
