Watching… Bedlam Basketball. I couldn’t let back-to-back BEelam wins pass without a mention here. It was a stressful game but my Cowboys pulled out a win over the Sooners! They are on a streak, hopefully it continues into March.
Listening to… Andrew Hallam on Afford Anything podcast. I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I’ve been listening to Afford Anything. While I was doing some yard work over the weekend, I listened to several episodes. The two-parter (here and here) with Andrew Hallam was very informative, so much so that I broke my spending fast rule and bought his book. If you are interested in investing, I highly recommend these episodes as a beginner/refresher course.
Reading… Millionaire Teacher. Andrew Hallam was a teacher that began investing when he was 19. By following simple investing rules (and with a lot of help from compounding interest), he had a million dollar portfolio by the time he was 38. He lays out his simple research backed methods in this book. This book, a long with other research has me reassessing my portfolio.
Wallking… my 10,000 steps. I am so glad the weather has been so nice. I’m finally able to get back to my 10,000 step goal. I feel so much better when I meet it.
Loving… TP-Link Range Extender. This also broke the spending fast, but it’s going to save me money in the long run. Late last year, I upgraded my DSL to U-Verse internet. I have been running out of data on my mobile phone for the last few months and finally pieced together that it was because my iPhone was constantly disconnecting from the new modem/router. When I saw these range extenders on sale at Amazon the other day I wondered if I could use it to keep that from happening. I set it up with a different Network name and connected my iPhone to it. It hasn’t disconnected since.
