2021 in life in the expat rat race

So what is up?

Work is wild, as usual. I’m probably taking too much on my plate lately, starting early, staying late and generally just keep on pushing my limits. I don’t like January. This is the time when I need to prepare bonus & compensation discussions (performance reviews) and in corpo this means we need to find ways to pay as little as possible to very hard working people, you know…to protect the budgets and all that. On one hand I’m really getting tired of the whole rat race mechanic driving my life, on the other hand it pays the bills, our new house and makes us sleep well.

Sold most of my investments and my brokerage account is near empty now. All that money will go to the new house. I still have some Apple shares and some smaller risky plays that will hopefully make me a millionaire soon lol.

My wife is starting to get real stressed about the new house. I think that’s funny, I’m pretty sure after 3-4 years she’ll think the house is too small and will want some bigger place haha.

I hope winter is over soon. It’s too cold, too wet, too dark.
