It's officially over - Goodbye Trump!

Trump is an enigma that managed to receive a crazy amount of support regardless of what he did which, perhaps, is a sign of a problem in America. 
He profited from his Presidency, he played golf at tax payer's expanse, he butchered the COVID response by himself creating events that further spread the disease, he pardoned convicted criminals, he almost destroyed America to its core etc... etc... etc... 
When confronted, all he had to do was say "Fake News" and all was well with his cult followers. After all, 50% of Americans attempted to vote him in for a second term going as far as storming a Capital building to make it happen: Only in America can you attempt to overthrow a Democratic Republic and call it "Patriotisms". 

Trump managed to escape the law his entire life and the fact that he became President just shows how well he's able to bend the laws in his favor. 
When I think of Trump, the first word that comes to mind is "Criminal" - not "President". I wish I had Trump's ability to bend reality and make everyone believe that the last 4 years never happened but I can't because it DID happened and it was one of the worse things to happen to America.

Today marks the end of a Presidency that really shouldn't of happened in the first place. America was left wounded by Trump's Presidency and everything now falls on Joe Biden. Whether or not he's able to fix the damage remains to be seen.

I wish you all the best.

Cut Your Own Hair

Way back in 2015, I decided that I was no longer going to spend 40$ a month on my hair and, instead, would use the money to invest in an RRSP (Canadian Equivalent to 401K). If we do the math, that's $40 (a month) * 12 months * 5 years = $2 400. 
Obviously, I'm not doing anything fancy to my hair - mostly just shaving it at different length depending on how I feel during a given week. 

The point is that I managed to find money at a time when I believed I didn't have any to invest. You may not want to stop going to a hairdresser for your hair but is there something you can do to save money every month? Given enough time, that small $10, $20, $30... you saved every month will make a big difference. Start now!

New Year New Health Goals

A new year, a new personal health resolution. It saddens me to see that, for most people, the desire to make a positive health change stops within the first few months of the year if not sooner.

"If you don't make time for your health today, you will have to make time for illness tomorrow!"
-Joseph Piscatella 

Personal health is the most important thing whether we consciously know about it or not. The reason is simple, good health means we get to enjoy more of life. Taking care of our health doesn't guarantee we won't have illnesses but it does help in giving our bodies a better fighting chance against them.
The most common excuse is "I have no time for it" and it's pretty silly considering that we all have 24 hours in a day and some people are busier while still making the time for it. 
If you agree that personal health is the most important thing in this life then it should be reflected in your schedule. Some people over estimate the time it takes; not knowing that an hour of exercises, with a few life style (or dietary) changes, is often all that is needed to improve the condition of the body.

You are what you eat and if you work with your body it will reward you.
