2021.10.27 06:31 3reds1green1red Mentally preparing for vacations/mini-retirement
I wasn’t too sure where to post about this topic so I thought this subreddit would have possibly like-minded individuals.
I want to take some time to travel and reward myself for all of the hard work I’ve put in so far, however, I can’t wrap my head around the idea of not working, not contributing to society and having a vacation. The immediate thoughts I get are, “just keep investing”, “that $5000 could be $50,000 in the future”, “keep up the momentum and keep building”, etc.
Can people share some wisdom on how they wrap their head around spending money on something they WANT rather than NEED. For me, I need to pay rent and buy food to survive but I don’t need to buy the latest iPhone or adventure around the world, but it is what I want.
Some background: - Australia. 28. Single with no dependents. $250K NW - all in the stock market. - >50% Savings Rate from net income. - I volunteer 6-10hrs/wk towards healthcare and education as well. - Growing up, I’ve never had vacations nor did my parents have the luxury to spend money on things we wanted. - High achiever. I always try to beat myself or do a little better each day. Growing up, my parents were the type to say, “You got 97% in your exam, what happened to the other 3%?“ and “You came top 4% in the country, why aren’t you the best?” - I know the above two points have probably had inherent psychological affects on me and contributes significantly to why I’m even writing up this post. I’m really hoping there’s someone out there that has a similar background and how they got out of this loop. I’ve seen therapists about this matter and it hasn’t really helped at all so I’m seeking words of wisdom from those who’ve been in my shoes.
I have 5 weeks of paid time off accrued as well which I just get paid out when they force me to use it for accruing too much. Being a FI page, a lot of people retire for different reasons but I’m one of those people who enjoys their job so I doubt I’ll RE, probably BaristaFI at most. Honestly, I can BaristaFI right now but that one part of me tells me that I should keep chugging along and be better, do more.
Reading my own post, I sound like a sensitive snowflake bragging about so many luxuries and all but I’m really struggling to stop this cycle of only building an enormous nest egg and not taking the time to enjoy what I’ve built.

2021.10.27 06:31 theNit021 Process for nationality - Police interview
I finally got past the people of the gemeente and it seems my application for nationality is being processed. Yay, I guess.
However just now I had a police officer show up to check my living conditions, came in the house, looked around… I did not expect that, but moreover, he invited me to police station next week for an interview.
For those who have obtained nationality, is this normal process? What happens exactly on the police interview? I have never even been inside of a police building in my whole life, plus the guy speaks a very local Nederlands, so I am shitting bricks that I will mess up this questioning unintentionally.

2021.10.27 06:31 sleepingcurves- LPT: Acrylic nails are the new bayonets
If you wear acrylics and need self-defense (at a v close distance 😬), may I suggest snapping each nail into a sharp point/edge with your teeth. Bite down hard in the center of the tip (they snap easier from pressure there vs the edges which tend to just crack them).
10 well-polished stabbies at my literal fingertips. Imho, these are best applied in eye pokes and throat jabs. Be careful about your punch form - it’d suck to look that bad ass then impale yourself.

2021.10.27 06:31 Hawk10798 SUGGESTION - Please add a feature to set workers harvesting berries/mushrooms to continuously do so until all of the resource is depleted
Mining raspberries and mushrooms is something I would love to be able to just set a worker to do for an hour or two, or until there are none left in my village instead of having to assign them every 30-60s to a new task. Is this possible to add as a feature and does it seem likely?

2021.10.27 06:31 robertandrews Blank widget icons?
Are there any Scriptables to add blank icons to my Home Screen, as space fillers?
I know about apps for this purpose, but I don’t like that they basically use cutouts of wallpaper to make it happen. Predicting icon position is hard.
Surely Scriptable can leverage actual transparency?

2021.10.27 06:31 anonthrowaway_93 Has anyone ever received a physical packet from US B-Schools encouraging you to apply?
Pretty much the title. I’ve submitted apps to a bunch of US B-schools across the top 20 and have a pretty high GMAT score (99th percentile).
I got a physical brochure from Rochester Simon with a customised letter and fee waiver, saying I was a “priority candidate”.
Just received another one from CMU Tepper as well - no letter but a brochure with “Chart your path” steps.
While I won’t be applying to either of these schools, I think it’s a good indicator that R1 apps to these schools might be low, particularly from high GMAT applicants. Just putting out this information in case anyone is considering these schools in R2, might be a good idea to shoot your shot in case you previously thought them out of reach or something.
