Living While Saving
Yup, back in Norway now. First, felt a bit strange seeing freakishly tall, or just in general, big people, but now I’m already used to it. I must admit, it’s quite nice to just walk or take the bus for a maximum of 20 minutes when I want to go somewhere. In Tokyo, I sometimes spent as much as 4 to 5 hours a day just commuting back and forth. Don’t really miss that.
Oh, yeah. About frugality. I’m really fucked here. I have managed to get a girlfriend based in Tokyo, while I’m in Norway, so now I have to spend at least $2000 a year on flight tickets. Time to step up the side hustling.
But, frugality is about cutting out stuff that does not give value. That’s not the case here, so I don’t really care.
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime – Lose Yourself, Eminem
Life has been good lately. I’m doing a project now where I try to read or listen to all of the bestsellers from Audible, and just finished Born A Crime by Trevor Noah (4.9 rating by 90000 people). Another wonderful book which opened up my world a bit more.
Another funny thing. After completing a program similar to the Deutsche Bank analyst bar exam, I’m motivated to move forward and go for the CFA. Let me tell you, being interested in finance, the world, reading tons of books, and talking with investors have made me knowledgeable without realizing it.
What this means, especially for those of you still in school, is your time spent talking and watching stocks is not wasted. While most other students seek to understand the theory (and many do), you are able to see the red line and actually use it in the real world.
FYI, when I say watch stocks, I DO NOT MEAN watching the stock price. I ‘m referring to the act of reading the transcripts, the reports, the balance sheets, the financials, the process of understanding key ratios, the product line, the segments, and how stuff affects the firm

The total dividend income for July landed on $70 which is a 10% increase from July 2017. The total dividend for 2018 is now 16,175 NOK or $1,910 which means a 75.22% increase from 2017.
For the income per month, day and hour, as well as the SleepMoneyTotal, go to the Dividend Income Spreadsheet
As we can see, next year, the dividend income should be $3,258 or 27,592 NOK if I don’t reinvest anything. Most likely I will, so $3,381 or 28,631 NOK is more likely.
Right now, I am making round 8 USD per day and for 2019, that will increase to 9 USD. My hourly wage is still very very low, but one day this number should be double-digit in respect to USD.
Well, 3 USD or 24 NOK for sleeping. At least my coffee is “free”
The main objective now is the make sure that I beat the past year’s income. For July, that’s also the case.
The accumulated income is now close to $4,000 USD. Can’t wait to reach $10,000.
That’s it. We are done with July and can finally move on to a few more rewarding months.
