Hey everyone, it’s Whatever Wednesdays again. I haven’t talked about crypto for awhile so today we’re going to ponder “Is Crypto Dead? (like for real this time?)” Is Crypto Dead (like for real this time?) Crypto is like Schrödinger’s cat, it’s both alive and dead at the same time. I haven’t talked about crypto in the last few weeks, because it’s been a bloodbath out there. As I type this Bitcoin is trading at around $3800, […]

Is Crypto Dead? (like for real this time?) #illumedati


Ok, so I thought I posted this on Friday… but apparently it didn’t auto-publish. So it’s Finance Fridays on Monday! Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. Today will just be a short post about “Bogle’s Warning“. Bogle’s Warning? Yea. Bogle, as in John Bogle, the founder of Vanguard, and the figurehead of the “Boglehead” movement. I would recommend you read the full article here on the Wall Street Journal. But if you’re lazy, you can […]

So let me preface this post with the fact that I went to Walmart on Tuesday and spent about $200 on Christmas Lights. At first glance, you may be taken aback and think that Sensei went a little bit crazy this Christmas season and started making […]

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays again… but it’s Cyber Monday… so today will be “Cyber Monday Musings”. First of all, I’d like to apologize for the recently infrequent posts. For some reason this year I decided to be really lazy for Thanksgiving/Black Friday and pretty much not to do anything. Part of this may be because I had to work on Thanksgiving and just forgot in general about writing a post for Friday. Also, please […]

Hey everyone, it’s Whatever Wednesdays and today is kind of a random post about my “Top Picks for Christmas 2018“. Top Picks for Christmas 2018 My daughter is 5 years old and my son is 3 years old, so these are kind of which toys in that age range which I think will be “hot” for this Christmas. I’ve looked at a lot of “hot toy” lists for Christmas 2018. To be honest, there seems to […]

Hey everyone, it’s Finance Fridays again. Today we’re going to talk about the constant battle of “Buy the Best” versus “Buy Cheap”. “Buy the Best” versus “Buy Cheap”? Yea. I think this is a constant battle that occurs in everyone’s mind whenever we’re at the store. There are conflicting ideals at work here: When you “Buy the Best” you are saying that buying the more expensive (possibly better) item that will provide better value long term […]
