QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE — THE LOST ART OF KEEPING A SECRET

It’s just a damn good song. (And even if the beginning video still looks very suggestive)

AWOLNATION — SAIL

I heard this on a BMW commercial and I am in love with the beat..

M.I.A. — BAD GIRLS

I am kind of obsessed with this song’s melody and beats. I heard it on ‘The Mindy Project’ (which I think I like so far).

I can’t believe she is 37. She looks 22!!! Like Gwen Stefani who is also beautiful.

The other song I like of hers is GALANG. The rest of her music is a miss for me, however.

NORAH JONES — Happy Pills

This is very different from what she’s used to producing — soft, soothing melodies. I really like the melody of this one.


New TV shows I am liking:

  • The Mindy Project — Mindy Kaling is quite funny
  • Elementary — Love me a mystery show, especially a Sherlock Holmes version
I also watched Guys with Kids and found it stupid. That kind of comedy is not my thing, it needs to be on the level of Frasier or Seinfeld where it’s witty rather than in-your-face. Or maybe it was just badly written.

I found this super cool illuminated globe chandelier? It’s a piece of art by Benoit Vieubled entitled: “Monde à l’endroit, Monde à l’envers”, which translates to “World inside out” in English.

Sometimes I watch home and garden shows and I dream about all the things I’d do if I owned a house.

….then I snap back to reality because I am a commitment-phobe for buying any kind of home or furnishings where I’d be TIED down to any city, and I keep in mind that I’d prefer the more nomadic lifestyle I chose.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using TheBudgetingTool.com. I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

      I’ve watched and re-watched both seasons!! I can’t wait for season 3. Cumberbatch is an EXCELLENT actor. Top notch.

    Haha, Wealth of Nations with a bunch of Fiction books? That’s classic and not-so-subtle!

    I’m a big fan of bookcase staircases. If (ahem, when) I finish my attic I bet I put one in.

      It’s far more interesting than seeing the same old beige stuff everywhere. Like out of a catalog.

    I love the globes and the staircase and the cupboardy bed thing, maybe the bed best just because it makes me think: oooh, secret hiding place! But I don’t think I’d have the skill/patience to make it and I don’t think I’d be willing to pay the amount of money I imagine would cost to buy …. it would have to be a project to do with a friend (very talented friend at that!) 🙂
