I’ve been having a bit of success recently selling my t-shirts on Amazon, so I decided it was time to do something with this income. And that something is sock it away for a rainy day - or more accurately, retirement.
Recently my brother was telling me about a deal he received on financing a new truck. He had gone to the dealer to browse and possibly buy, and after a bit of negotiation with the salesperson, agreed to a price of $20,000* at 0% interest for 60 months. However, the dealer was unable to actually approve him for 0% interest, so my brother shrugged his shoulders and proceeded to walk.
Earlier this year a couple of police officers were accused of raping someone they had in their custody. The police countered that they had not raped anyone, but rather the sex had been consensual. Critics rightly pointed out that police shouldn’t be having sex on the job with anyone - especially someone in their custody since they cannot consent - and raised the question How was this legal for the police to do in the first place?
July has come and gone and I have finally - FINALLY - finished my master’s degree. I’m done with classes. I’ve yet to receive that piece of paper saying I’m done in the mail, but all that’s left is waiting. No more responsibility. That means I have more time for reading (and video games, and writing, and my wife and son - but of course not in that order!)
