#361 Dentists and Taxes

As the end draws near, I’m preparing myself for a big life change. Part of that involves using what health benefits I have while I can. A little while ago I went to the dentist. What I didn’t mention was that I told him one of my teeth was feeling sensitive and painful. He said […]

#355 Apply for a Job

The day after I quit my job, I got an email from my former boss. It was about a job opening at a certain awesome late night host’s TV show. The job sounded like a perfect fit to me to be honest. I kind of sighed and put it out of my mind. I was […]

#339 Apply to a Modeling Agency

I was talking to a couple of friends who work in fashion. I was talking about how I was quitting and thinking about ways to make some extra money. One of the girls said I would make a good fit model. I never thought I’d make a good any kind of model. But I had […]

#332 Make a Monthly Budget

People think I’m good with money. I am for the most part. But I’m the first to admit that when I was younger, I rebounded pretty heavily from my stingy parent’s upbringing. My parents are cheap. But they have an excuse. They’re from China and grew up without much money. Their penny pinching ways have […]

#327 Admit that I Stole From My Grandmother

It was the summer after my sophomore year in college. I had just been driven back from Hanford of all places. A friend of mine in college said he could get me a job over the summer where he lived. I stayed at his family’s house then at a friend of his as I waited […]

#306 Adopt a Tiger

I just adopted a motherfucking tiger. Not a tiger that copulates with matriarchs. That was just a figure of speech. But yeah, a goddamn bad-ass tiger. It costed just $25 through the WWF. Apparently tigers are becoming endangered or something. The money donated helps by giving other tigers flu shots, fur coats to keep warm […]

#121b Play to Win

My original plan going into the World Series of Poker tournament I was playing was just to make it past the first day.  The first day is arguably the hardest day to make it past.  The most people are playing and the most people get eliminated.  The early blinds double every hour for three hours […]

#117 Give out a Micro Loan

I could never have gone to college without a loan. Unless of course I could’ve gotten California residency and not paid three times the tuition as an out-of-state student. But I’m not bitter. I swear. My point is loans can be life changing. Now I’m pretty fortunate that the only loans I’ll really ever have […]

#115 Complain about Product

I’m not the kind of person to complain about stuff. It’s pretty rare that I’ll complain about food at a restaurant. Even rarer to send it back. Something really has to be wrong with it. I owe this gift to my mother who made me eat whatever was in front of me no matter what […]

#40 Buy an Ad for this Site

This will be a short one given my exhausting but rewarding venture last night. I’ve been thinking of ways to take my blog readership to the next level.  One of those ways was with a Facebook ad.  Tonight I decided to take the plunge. What’s scary about that?  Well, first of all the money.  But […]
