On Do 1 Thing Baby Just Do 1 Thing

@greyeminence It definitely made me wonder what the one thing was going to be.

On Let’s Throw Some Money at Our Problems: June 2014 Check-in

@Cup of T Asia! My first stop is Hong Kong for just a week, then I'm flying to Hanoi and plan to spend a month in Vietnam. After that, we'll see. It's an open-ended trip so it will be over when I run out of money and/or come home crying for my mommy.

On Snacks On a Budget: Everything You Need to Know About Popcorn

I love movie theatre fake butter sludge and I will not apologize for it. Except to my stomach lining. Sorry, stomach lining!

On Does Worrying About Money Make You Better at Money?

If we want to reference the "Are you a Bert?" muppet post from the other day, I am a Telly Monster. Worrying is my M.O. I think in ways, being a little more carefree is beneficial (especially for one's sense of well-being), but my inner Telly has taught me to be a good saver because you never know what could happen.

On A Father-Daughter Duo Answers Your Questions: Should We Use Our Money to See the World Now, Or Save for the Future?

I'm not planning on having kids but I know my circumstances may change in any number of ways in the future. I want to travel long-term (and I will be later this summer!) so my way of getting to that was starting an emergency savings account with a specific goal. Once I reached it, I opened up a separate account for travel. Some of that account is allocated for "resettlement" funds when I return. It's nice to know I won't be totally broke when I get back. When I do get back and (hopefully) find a new job, I plan to start contributing more to the original emergency account.

On Being the Bert

I'm definitely of a Bert and also a Telly. Remember Telly? He's the anxious monster. I need to embrace my inner Ernie and Grover a little more.

On On the Scourge of 'Office Speak'

I laughed when I saw "circle back" in there. My coworkers and I mock anyone among us who takes that out of the office and into happy hour.
