It’s Saturday, October 17th!

…and I’m back from a brief internet hiatus. But lots of other things have happened in the past month that are worth looking into:

This is What a Real Bomb Looks Like by Adam Fabio, hackaday.com. Definitely not anything to do with minimalism or financial independence, but in the wake of the “bomb” incident in Texas, some perspective is in order.

Why Your $80,000 Car Doesn’t Impress Me Any Longer by Steve, thinksaveretire.com. I work for a Fortune-500 company, and these cars are everywhere. But I also see people who have no other purpose in life except for their job, so I guess it kind of fits in certain situations. Not for me though!

From zero to $15,000 in dividend income in 8 years, dividendgrowthinvestor.com. I’ve become a big fan of this blog because it gets into the specifics of (at least one way of) how to become financially independent. I’m in this guy’s shoes circa 2007, but dividend investing is looking more and more appealing to me as I research it.

BONUS! What I’m listening to this week.

Any guesses why? Hint: it’s in the first verse!
