Financially Independent, Retired Early(ish) at 57.

I’m visiting Principal FI today!

I’m sure we can all identify with Principal FI – it must be awful to think you’re going to get a day off and then you don’t.

Anyway, please jump across and read the interview I did for him on his ‘Educators on FI/RE’ series. (Sounds like something the kids might do to stay warm if the school was snowed in!!!)

This is an interview that, when it came out, I read and thought, ‘Yeah, I’m really happy with this one.’ I’d like to thank him for allowing me to share with his readers.

    Thanks so much for doing the interview. Your story is always inspiring and you’ve got a great writing “voice.” It’s almost like you teach writing for a living!

    I never miss one of your posts, so I’m honored to be able to host one.

    I loved reading that interview. Particularly the part where you were reflecting on women in history and how despite all your struggles you were so privileged compared to them. And I definitely am conscious of that too! It’s such a boon that women are able to work and earn income, are able to own property, and *don’t need a man to be financially secure* anymore! Being able to choose to be single is a real privilege of the 21st century. Though that said, at 28 I’m still undecided about singledom and keep dipping back into the dating game. But at other times, men just seem like too much effort, for too little potential reward!
