Adventurous Soul?




You Are Adventurous... Sometimes



You like an adrenaline rush as much as the next person. You like your thrills in small doses.

You're generally pretty calm and level headed. But sometimes you have to go wild and have a crazy adventure.

You're up for extreme sports, as long as you know you'll be safe. You don't mind taking the risk.

When it comes to thrills that truly risk your life, you may be tempted... but you pick safety instead.


Keeping Fingers Crossed

Pardon my lack of posts.

I've been very busy lately.

The good: new clinic hours, new freelancing job. I wish I had enough money after these to buy gold bars. US dollar is weak, so I don't really get a lot from my "rakets". I know I have to invest, and now is a good time for us to do so with gold, since these are really more stable investments. I've heard that the gold prices have actually increased over the past two weeks! And there are predictions that prices will be going up even higher! Too bad we weren't able to invest in it because of...

The bad: kids getting sick, me getting sick, hubby getting sick :(

My baby was also hospitalized hence our savings were again decreased. Which highlighted even more the fact that we need to save for that rainy day and invest for the future.

I will just as soon as we get enough money for investing! Keeping our fingers crossed.
