Welp. I pre-empted bad spending by transferring most of my paycheck out of my hands. The downside is that I learned today that this really cool titanium yo-yo will be released, and likely it will sell out before I have the money in my account to buy it. $310
The yo-yo would make me a little happy now. Or I could save/invest the money to retire someday… that day seems like never right now, just like paying of the condo seemed like never not that long ago. There’s definitely some FOMO, but I’ve had so much FOMO in the last 2 years for this kind of stuff… I’m kind of used to it.
It’s painful to think I’m giving up cool stuff to invest in a market somebody else is about to fuck over.
