Stocktake: Q4 2022

What’s new?

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.
