Do You Have An UNFAIR ADVANTAGE?

How crazy and tenacious are you in pursuit of your dream to rid yourself of consumer debt, build an emergency fund, accumulate savings, and start investing to secure your future?

It’s time to add a little refinement to Pad Adventure, make it more user friendly and pleasing to the eye–lest we lose a swath of the readership.

I need to post images of rich cups of coffee, luxurious textbooks, soft comfortable throw blankets and maybe a perfectly steeped cup of chai to avoid migration of the masses.

A candid photo of a child, a whippet hound (is there such a thing?) or a couple on a Sunday stroll on white sand beaches would make padadventure appeal to the masses.

Would it be wrong to pull some wholesome family pictures off of the internet and show how I made a pair of shoes for my virtual kids from banana peels and corn husks?

REAL ESTATE INCOME EXPOSED!–THE STRIPPER AND THE PUKER (Ep. 7)

Share Button

“NO, this isn’t the forgotten prequel to the Hobbit, a fishing show, nor is it a previously unreleased song from The Steve Miller Band–it’s episode 7 Mofo’s.”

Things were starting to move hard and fast at POS duplex #1, and I was starting to feel like a resident, given the time I was putting in.

I started noticing all the little things I assumed might work against my cause.

Funny how that works when you actually spend a little time at a place.

REAL ESTATE INCOME EXPOSED!–HONEY, COME MEET THE TENANTS! (Ep. 6)

I had done all the necessary legwork, researched everything I could and was excited at the prospect of being a landlord—I felt pretty savvy actually—my girlfriend was not so confident in my abilities, and I think it’s for this very reason she tagged along.

I’m not afraid to admit that.

If I didn’t say it already, I’m dealing with POS houses right now, not warzones, but not someplace Vanilla Ice (even during his heyday) would hang out at either.

Not on your life, life baby!

Howdy, and welcome to my blog.

If you haven’t deciphered things to this point, I’ll break it down for you.

You’re probably not going to find much great writing, blogging, tech skills, or really great “anything” for that matter on this site.

THE ANDROMEDA EFFECT

I’ve heard it and I know you have, pretty people always seem to get a break.

I want to believe the opposite is true, but sadly, ugly people are screwed out of some perks just for being, well, ugly.

THE SKINNY (NO PUN INTENDED) 

EVERY experience I’ve had during a traffic stop, no matter my disposition, is tense and I’m approached as if the stop sign or turn signal I omitted meant something personal to the officer.

My omission is followed by a ticketing to warning ratio of several to none. Even after ticketing, I am remanded again, “watch your driving, ya hear?”

My girlfriend on the other hand, fits the Andromeda mold.

She seems immune to the ills of the ticketed masses. Continue reading Does this FICO score make me look fat?
