This summer and year have been about volatility in unexpected places. We all watched the markets dip and rebound after the initial Brexit vote. I personally had some shenanigans at my gig, but was really encouraged by the community’s response to my attempt to get to FinCon. Y’all are wonderful and supportive. Thank you.
I am an hourly employee at my temp gig, and I had the misfortune of being sent home after a half day unexpectedly. I did nothing wrong, but they could not get their systems to work, which meant that I couldn’t work either. This will definitely impact next week’s paycheck and comes at an unfortunate time since I had worked a half-day on Monday as well. You are guaranteed nothing as a contingent employee. This week reminds me that I need to pursue FIRE to rid myself of the vicissitudes of laboring for others.
Brexit definitely impacted my retirement accounts. I’m personally on the right track, but am worried for the world in the next few years. Increased volatility hits financial markets definitely, but it absolutely increases violence in the world. I’m watching Venezuela and worrying what other countries will respond to market conditions in a similar vein.
I still love Earnest and credit them with my ability to conquer some of this debt.

How did your week go? Have your accounts already recovered from Brexit?
