What I’m doing now

Hugging the bear

Our portfolio is ending the year -14% from its high, which is not bad considering the S&P 500 is down -19% YTD.

Our best hedge against losses came from real estate, with our investment in Fundrise coming in around +6.2% for the year.

In 2023, we'll continue putting money into low-cost index funds, but our main focus will be building a cash fund for real estate purchases.

Head down 🧑‍💻

I'm the tech lead on a project launching in early January, so work has consumed my last few months of 2022. I expect that heavy workload to slow in early 2023.

Recovering 🏃‍♂️

I hurt my foot on a long run in September, so I've been slowly recovering and trying to stay in shape through the (brutal) winter. I'm hoping to be back on my feet come spring.
