I did my first work out video last night since before I got married (so about a year ago), and man am I sore! Aside from waking up like a 100-year old this morning, I realized that working out, even if it’s only a few times a week, is something I really need to incorporate […]

This past summer I was checking the job boards pretty much 24/7 after having quit my job in Vancouver to make a new home for myself in Toronto.

Just a quick update today. As you may have noticed, Mo’ Money Mo’ Houses is getting a bit of a facelift. Although I did a redesign of my blog this summer when I switched my blog over from Tumblr to WordPress, there were a few kinks that still needed to be sorted out and instead […]

Are Longterm Goals Getting in the Way of Your Life?

| March 24, 2014 | 30 Comments

You know that question you get during job interviews or performance reviews: “What are some of your longterm goals?” or “Where do you see yourself in 5 or 10 years?” Personally, I’ve always had trouble answering that question, but I’ve always at least had a vague idea of where I saw myself at 30.

Happy Friday everyone! You know how I mentioned that I’ve found it impossible to find any good Thai food in Toronto? Well, that’s still true, but lately my HB and I have been on a pretty good roll when finding great places to eat. For at least the past 7 months, we’ve tried dozens of […]
