Burning Desire For FIRE

Financial-Independence-Retire-Early(er). Achieved the first two letters of FIRE, now onto the rest!

It’s the little things…

All 3 trouble-makers are absent on the same day.

Sometimes it’s the little things that turn an ordinary day into a good one.

Normally, I practically have to carry a whip and a chair into my year 8 class to keep them quiet and able to learn. But today? Three boys were away.

I was able to read ‘The Outsiders’ to the class without a single interruption.

I love my job today!

Anyone have any other ‘little things’ that make an ordinary working day seem special?


  1. Had one of those moments on Tuesday! My department has an assigned Customer Service Representative for a vendor we work with regularly, and I’ve struggled with our CSR for 3+ years with their consistent incompetence. Found out our CSR was reassigned, and we got a new one. I was so happy, I flossed (the dance, not my teeth) in front of my boss, and I’m 34.

  2. A day when the computer doesn’t play up could be a good day.
