  1. I’ve always envisioned my retirement as being an active one where I keep working at something I love — though likely making much less money — so that I feel like I’m still working toward a goal. If anything, I’ll yell at people on the internet

  2. Like debtblag, I’ve assumed that my retirement is going to be working or volunteering doing things I really care about.  Teaching yoga to kids?  Offering free math tutoring?  Who knows exactly where the adventure will go, but I know I’ll be in the driver’s seat.  
    And thanks for the mention, PT!  I rode my bike to work all 5 days this week and loved every second of it!

  3. Thanks for the double mention this week!  Cheers!
