    Late to the thread... happy belated birthday, OP. A few thoughts...

    Like everyone said, be sure you are investing in your retirement. Try to cultivate an interest in investing as a hobby. I am around 50 and my friends who had investing as a hobby 20 years ago are basically able to retire any time they want. 20 years ago I spent money on pinball machines instead of investing... Guess who isn't able to retire yet. But if you can't find the interest to make it a serious hobby, *at least* do autopilot retirement investing. Max out that 401k and dump money into index funds too... whatever you do, make a plan and stick to it.

    Something I recently discovered that I really, really wish I had been doing... writing journals. My memory for stuff that I have experienced is not very good. I can't remember jack about vacations I have been on, pinball repairs I have done, people I have known, people I have married even, LOL. I really wish I had written it down as it happened.

    You didn't forget about that $500.00 that you were sending me did you?

    A pinball forum is a terrible place to ask for advice on life. That's worth knowing and extrapolating.

    Yeah, but how often can you use extrapolating, otherwise.

    Forums are the haven of big words.

    one important lesson: never stay with a woman who doesn't appreciate you or what you offer. accept the truth, and split up. I learned the hard way

    I don't know, a lot of successful people 1/2 ass retired and with enough money to buy lots and lots of expensive toys. They can't be doing it all wrong.

    unless they're assholes, i don't care how well you're doing, if your just an asshole, then......you know, just go away
