Weekend Reading – Recovering from flu edition

Boy, it has been a rough couple of weeks for me. Upon returning to work from my 2 weeks parental leave in May, I caught the flu. I was in bed for 2.5 days trying to recover. I’m a healthy guy and don’t typically get sick, so it was a shock to me to be sick, having high fever, feeling weak, and coughing my lungs out. Luckily I’m feeling a bit better now. The coughing is still lingering so hopefully that’ll go away soon.

Although out sick, I have been busy on the dividend paying stock purchasing front. I’ll write a recent buys article next week to outline my purchases. I also managed to write a couple of articles:

Hopefully you had a better week than me. I’m looking forward to the weekend. πŸ™‚

Here are some articles that I enjoyed reading the last couple of weeks:
