We had our scuba class orientation last week, and are getting ready for our first full day of class today. (There are four full days total.) We’ll be doing a “confined water dive”, which basically means we’re in a pool. Which, I’ve got to say, is the perfect place to be this time of year.
Scuba also requires having a set of snorkeling gear, so we got set up with that earlier this week. ($200 later, each.) I imagine we could have got away cheaper than that, but we like the stuff we got and that’s what’s important.
I’m excited to try out a new hobby. (Especially one that will involve going to the beach, hopefully in exotic places. I have visions of the Great Barrier Reef and islands where people play steel drums in my head…)
And with that, it’s time for a few money-related links:
Free From Broke describes 25 traits of the not-so-well-to-do. (Lots of interesting comments on this one too.)
Four Pillars warns us against underestimating (or overestimating) the impact of small savings opportunities.
20 Something Finance would like to know which you choose: money vs. career satisfaction. Personally I’m aiming for both. Also, I love the picture on this post.
One Caveman reminds us that good personal finance takes practice. (And I totally agree.)
