Well, I’m back from my NYC trip and I’m just getting back into the swing of things. It is always great to go on vacation, but also at the same time, always hard to assimilate back into everyday life. I only wish I could be on vacation 100% of the time and travel non-stop. There is something about traveling that just brings excitement into life, which is one of the reasons I love it so much.
One day in the future I anticipate traveling will become a bigger part of my life, but in the meantime – I have to work hard to live. Which, in reality isn’t so terrible as I enjoy work and don’t anticipate ever retiring.
Frankly, it’s just not in my nature to retire. For me, work is fun and entertaining. I enjoy the accomplishment work provides and can see myself doing something well into my 80s.
Well, not only is it already February, but it is also time for another list of great reads. I’m guessing you’re familiar with many of these bloggers, but there are also a few new ones in the list that I have never featured before.
As always, I’m impressed by the level of talent within the personal finance arena. There are a lot of great PF websites out there. Be sure to take time exploring some of these articles. Your wallet will thank you for it.
