Lately, I’ve been finding myself thinking about retirement, which is something I feel like I’m way too young to be considering at all, outside of, you know, how I should probably start saving up some money for it, I guess. But, the truth of the matter is, with how busy things have been as of late, I’ve been looking to see what sorts of things I can exile from my life. And my job seems like a good one, if I could, you know, find some way to collect retirement benefits.
It’s not like I don’t have any retirement savings built up, but I guess the real question is, can my family afford me living off of $2.76 a month for the rest of my life?
My wife tells me no, but I think she might be off on her math.
But for serious, as someone who finds his days absolutely filled to the brim with all of the activities, and has a ton of other fun things he’d like to be doing that he simply doesn’t have time for, like, I don’t know, fishing, I can’t help but think about the days when I’m not spending 40 hours a week hustling for the dollar.
I have a lot of retired friends, and they often like to tell me how they either feel bored or too busy altogether still, and I can’t help thinking that once I get retired, my life would be able to slow down in just the perfect way, where I would have more time to read, fish, write, and, I don’t know, like, take naps or something.
So, this is just my note to you that I’ve started my retirement planning. Not the financial piece of it, obviously, but just planning out what my days will look like when retirement finally comes.
Maybe next week?
