Why did I let go of my motorcycle dream?

3 years ago I bought myself this beautiful motorcycle as an early retirement gift. I know, flashy, and not exactly frugal. but I reasoned myself that the costs of maintaining a 2-wheel drive are considerably lower than those of a 4-wheel drive. That, apparently- was only half true. Apparently, my small 125 Honda PCX insurance …

My “weird” sleeping hours.

*I remind you, yet again, that I am no sleep specialist-MD-scientist or anything of the sort. an early retired lawyer who happens to be a health enthusiast. Actually- that’s not true- I didn’t “happen to become a health enthusiast”. I chose it, and set it as a personal goal because I believe that maintaining good …

My 6 tips for Intermittent fasting: part 1.

How much did it cost to change my “honest opinion”?

You remember I am a class A introvert and a known unashamed nerd. Now you remember. Anyway- I love autumn and winter, can’t deal with harsh sun and heat- which is a shame since I live in a very hot place, suffice to say we have 8-9 months of summer a year- and I do …

My Duolingo hacks!

I do hope you are aware of this life-changing app. #oh-no paid links, no cousin who developed the app, plus- as you will see in a moment- the hacks are entirely free- and that is exactly the reason they are considered hacks. I just like this app -I get to learn a language, feel challenged …

Autumn. cinnamon.

It is supposedly autumn here. It’s just so hot it’s quite idiotic to be celebrating autumn. Because autumn-for me- is a celebration. I can’t stand the heat, the blinding sun, the fatigue and weariness that go hand in hand (in my case?) with this heat. Sure- the abundance of fruit and quick hot shower water …

What about those avocados?

But-  I changed my mind lately- …
