August Update. The “I’m getting old” edition.

Sore Back. I'm Old!

Monthly Financial Update

Personal Highlights for August:

  • I just celebrated my 36th Birthday.  Wow, I’m old..and I’m feeling it.  My back hurts, I got some weird growth on my eyelid, grey hairs are everywhere…So how did I celebrate being so damn old?  Naturally the wife and I played Super Mario World and had some drinks…
  • In Lieu of random back pain, an ever expanding beer belly and general “oldness” I decided I should probably do something.  I registered for soccer (starting in October) and have started running a few miles on the treadmill each night.
  • The Premier League has started up again, and I decided to check out the 1 month trial of the subscription service DAZN.  So far I’ve only watched 2 games, but I’m leaning towards keeping it.
  • Amber got me a bunch of syrups & bitters to add to my cocktail collection, from a locally made company ABIDING CITIZEN.  Here is my updated collection:
    Bitters and Syrups
  • Financial Highlights for August:
  • Continued bi weekly payments into spousal RRSP  (30 units of US Equity Index Fund) and TFSA
  • Sold my cocktail Arcade table for $1200 on Facebook Marketplace that was just collecting dust in the basement.
  • Transferred half my work RRSP into my direct investing plan.  With the proceeds I added 1100 shares of XAW, 1000 unites of RBC Canadian Equity Income Fund, 244 shares of CAE and 256 shares of GSY.
  • Paid dividends from 5 companies, and 1 funds.  Dripped a total of 23.5 new shares/unites.

  1. Thanks for any other wonderful article.
    The place else may just anybody get that kind of information in such a perfect manner of writing?

    I have a presentation next week, and I’m at the look for such


  2. I’ve been going thru the same random “getting old” annoyances. Frustrating when you get an issue out of the blue while still in 30s.

    Looks like things have been pretty all round financially. Keep it up!
