Weekend Readings

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. 🙂

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

Distilled Dollar wrote about Lessons from Charlie Munger on Divorce and the Death of 9 Year Old Son.

Retired Before Day wrote about The 10 Cent Child Labor Experiment.

FrugalTrader discussed Top Cash Back Credit Cards in Canada for 2016.

Ian Young explained Why Vancouver’s housing market is a freak show.

Broke Millennial explained Balancing Unequal Incomes in a Relationship.

Done by Forty shared their 2015 expenses. Very interesting to read.

Even Steven shared 5 Things he learned from Warren Buffett & Charlie Munger at the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting.

Investing Hunting gave a history lesson on the origins of Roth IRA.

Tristan asked Do you earn as much as you think you do per hour?

Mustachian Post asks Have you ever broken your toilet?

Saving the Crumbs said Don’t Buy Stuff You Cannot Afford.

    being sick is awful especially when there is a little one who doesn’t care that you feel like death. Good list – I’ll check them out.

    Sorry to hear about the flu. Next time get a Tamiflu prescription within 48 hours. It really works.

    And thanks for the articles.

      Not too big into prescribed medicine but perhaps that’s something I’ll look into next time. Thanks.
