Looking at 12 months fluctuations – they do look incredible. Somebody who put $1 in March last year would gain at least 40% today…
Its funny how appetite grows with the change in circumstances. Being by myself and having a place to live I most likely be happy to live on $1K a month. I still work but mood and view on life would be completely different. I would be financially independent now. However, in the world where I am now even $50K a year will not be enough. So will keep pushing until I can.
On the personal front the last two months have been the happiest time on recent memory.
