I have one more year to be financially independent by the time I am forty. Not that it is a goal set in stone or anything, it's just a convenient marker of time. My goal was actually to be financially secure enough to change careers, not to retire. So my next step should be to figure out what job I want to do next.
It was a beautiful day outside today but I was stuck in my office again. Next year I should take a vacation day for my birthday. It will be on a Friday so that will make a nice 3 day weekend. I'm already looking forward to it (assuming I am still working there). I bought donuts this morning. There was only one other person there who eats donuts so there were a few left over. For lunch we walked to Carl's Jr. and they bought me a chicken sandwich. I can't really say anything else happened today. Having a birthday in the middle of the work week isn't too exciting.
The best part of the day was being able to check my bank account because it is payday and I am another $1100 richer. That was a very nice present indeed.
