  • What do people who are not a K-pop fan think about South Korea?

    South Korea is an amazing place to be as a foreigner. Everything is so convenient and easy to access. Convenience stores are literally everywhere, sometimes even 10 seconds walk from each other. Seoul is truly is a 24 hour city. If you go to Itaewon at 4 or 5am in the morning, it’s full of…

  • If you won 1 billion in the lottery, what would you do?

    Interesting question, I heard that there was a single winner of the $1.6 billion Mega Million lottery today. After taxes and taking the lump sum that’s roughly $600 million dollars.

  • Wishing, waiting, praying…

    Not much to update these days. I’m pretty depressed because of what happened at the beginning of this year. Usually I’ve been a fairly risk-neutral investor, neither too risk taking or too conservative, but this year I foolishly took out 3 loans to average down into crypto, which subsequently plummeted 90%.
