Apologies for not posting new chapters last week! I had some unexpected things come up. First I had to travel for work, so I was busy night and day.

The exact circumstances are foggy now, since it happened so long ago, but I’ll give you

Four Years of Debt Freedom

Warren, you had one job!

Greetings from La La Land (or is it Moonlight?)! :) I couldn’t resist.

It feels like it’s been forever since I updated my blog! Thank you to everyone who emailed me or left kind words in the comments. It really helped lift my spirits since my last depressing post. I figured that even though I’m still struggling with life here in the city of angels, I have (continue reading here)
