Where's the FZ been?
Friends, strangers, and everyone in-between -- I'm very sorry for my lapse in communication. I hope you haven't been worried.
The truth is, I started the Frugal Zoomer with 3 very empty months in quarantine in rural Vermont without a job or a purpose or an ability to socialize. Those were some productive months!
As you can see, I lost some momentum (okay, a lot of momentum... Zero posts over six weeks is not a great track record).
Here's a few things that have been keeping me busy.
1) Starting a new job.
2) Moving to Boston.
3) Learning how to cook.
4) Actually managing my finances and implementing every detail of what I've written about and researched.
5) Learning how to balance numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4 with down-time.
I consider all of those bullet points to be at least partial successes. I moved, I work, I've cooked at least 3 distinct meals, and I have set up my finances the way I describe on this here site.
I've learned SO much and I can't wait to share it with you. My financial life has been irreversibly changed by each of the points mentioned above. I have a paycheck! I am independent and pay my own bills! I buy my own food and then prepare it! I have automated as much of this messy process of bill-paying, saving, investing, spending, and debt-paying as possible!
Too many exclamation points, I know. But these changes have put me on the path to financial freedom and I'm pretty excited about it, if you couldn't tell.
My consistency in blogging has been lacking, out of stress / exhaustion / laziness. I promise to never leave you for 6 weeks again and to come back with more relevant, informative, funny material.
