Credit Scores and Climate Change

I came across this article about a week ago, and thought it was worth looking at a little more deeply, as from the first sentence on it makes a lot of interesting assumptions. Add into the mix politics and controversial contemporary issues, and what’s not to love? To what extent does financial savvy reflect political prognostication capabilities? And what does the sophistication of a given...

What All Millennials Wish Millennials Would Stop Writing About Millennials

[stag_icon icon=”chevron-circle-down” url=”” size=”50px” new_window=”no”] This is probably a critical flaw in my character for which I will no doubt be a long while in Purgatory, but I get no end of delight in fisking poorly reasoned articles. That delight is exponentially increased in direct proportion to the level of obliviousness exhibited in the...

How To Pay Off a House

Just a couple weeks ago Megan and I had the great delight of reaching one of our loftiest goals: completely paying off our house. It was a long 2.5 years, but now that it’s behind us it’s one of those things that feels even more worth it in retrospect. And we never have to make another mortgage payment ever again, which is definitely a bonus! I’ve been thinking a lot about our journey to debt...

The Best Worst Case Scenario: Part 5

[stag_icon icon=”chevron-circle-down” url=”” size=”50px” new_window=”no”] I’ve written many times before about some of the dangers and traps associated with the use of credit cards.

How To Motivate a Creative

If you have a bunch of creatives in the room, getting them to do what you want can be a bit like herding cats, except they (the creatives) may be even more obstinate and willful, if that’s even possible. Fortunately, you probably won’t have to buy kitty litter. Motivating creatives can be tricky, because creatives are often motivated by different things than other positions. But learning what...

Set to Default

For some reason I end up writing about debt far more frequently than my expertise should allow, but the beauty of having a blog is that no one can stop me. A rather silly article written by a man who should know better has been making the usual circuit, this time lauding the decision to willingly default on student loans. I say that the man should know better partially because he has surely lived...

The Enemy of the Good

For whatever reason I have devoted more digital ink than is probably warranted to the subject of debts great and small, avoiding them and paying them off, etc., etc. I must confess to have given few figs to all things financial for most of my life, no doubt accompanied at times by the sweet bliss of ignorance. I have been fortunate to not have made too many major financial blunders, now more...

It’s A Trap!

One of the of hidden places on the internets to find hilarious things is any kind of tech forum. The level of amusement is directly proportional to the level of fanboy-dom present, which makes any sort of Apple-related news site a veritable treasure trove of instant entertainment. This particular species of jocularity is generally marked by poor syntax barely masking ignorance, and once the...

Gotta Give ‘Em Credit

I don’t normally make a habit of clicking on the obnoxious ads at the bottom of articles. I actually try and make sure to never visit any ad that is contextualized via either Facebook or the ever ubiquitous tentacles of The Google. However, today I couldn’t help but click through to what I assumed would be something ridiculous, an ad for an article entitled Top 3 Reasons to Get A New Credit Card...
