Link love (the I-just-bought-a-house edition)

NZ Muse link loveThat is all.

(I also: Packed a bag and went to stay with my parents. Then had to move all of my stuff out for real, into storage, because our flat broke up when our head flatmate/tenant/leaseholder decided to leave. Delivered a massive project at work that has been in progress since I started there. Ran an 8.4km race without training for it. Let’s just say been a manic few months.)

So many good reads this week, as you can see, but this was one of my favourites – the author of the Fuck Off Fund piece is back, this time talking Suck It Skills:

“Here’s how I finally got more money and more power: I found something more valuable to give in return.

Money is a kind of power: the power to pay your bills, the power to move around at will, the power to feed oneself. And power — political power, authority, money — costs something to gain.”

    Wow, a house!! Congratulations! You don’t need to tell me how epic that is. I hope you will tell us how you pulled that off in this climate, and at your age!!! You must be dancing around with joy.

    Congrats also on taking the steps you need to take care of yourself. You are all you’ve got. Be well!!! Big hugs, it sounds like a lot of transitions have been (and will be) afoot.
