monday muse
I’m thinking, how should I eat this piece of orange… 6 month old Mini.

The Monday Muse aims to serve as a weekly booster for our financial fitness, setting the tone of a successful week in all areas of our lives. With so many wonderful writers/bloggers sharing their experiences and insights, I frequently feel like yelling out their articles from the top of my lungs, so everyone could hear and benefit from these priceless lessons. This series is inspired by my esteemed mentor PoF’s Sunday Best series. 

Each Monday Muse will share 5 articles I’ve read recently and found inspiring, instructional, & actionable: mostly in personal finances, but could also be pertinent to other areas of our lives. After all, our lives are not as compartmentalized as we thought. If various aspects of our lives are truly that segregated from one other, why would financial stress cause physician burn-out?

So here you go, I’m on the top of my DWM mountain, shouting out to you. Enjoy!

Big ERN @ Early Retirement Now makes a case for abandoning the traditional “emergency fund” in Our Emergency Fund is Exactly $0.00, a title which isn’t exactly accurate, but the arguments are sound.

      Thank you for stopping by, I can’t agree with you more on using negative or 0% interest credit cards as raining day fund. Since my credit limit is 250k, i feel pretty comfortable to charge 50k on it any day. Although it is nice to keep the balance at zero (have been the last several months). waiting for the next enticing credit deal, especially after I close on my dream home.

    Happy Monday!

    Just wanted to chime in with some stuff I’ve been enjoying:

    I stumbled across “Forensic techniques are subject to human bias, lacks standards, panel found” by Spencer S. Hsu on The Washington Post (04/17/12), which has some rather chilling numbers.

    A companion read is the 12/16/15 opinion piece “Forensic science reform is finally here. But will we get it right?” by Radley Balko. Read on for Balko’s assessment.

    This past Memorial Day weekend was my triennial re-read of War Is A Force That Gives Us Meaning by Chris Hedges. Here is a great quotation from it: “Love alone fuses happiness and meaning. Love alone can fight the impulse that lure us toward self-destruction.”

    Right now I am reading Ways of Seeing by John Berger (it’s kinda for an upcoming post, shh!).

    I just watched Code Black, which is about a group of young ER doctors in training in one of the busiest public hospitals in the United States. Very fascinating and inspiring!
