Warm and Fuzzy Budgeting – "You have things that matter to you. Hopes, and goals, and dreams. This is going to sound cheesy, but I think it’s true: Your budget is simply your hopes, and goals, and dreams … on paper."
The notables in this week’s internet cruising were mostly in personal finance. Surprise, surprise.
I picked up a couple of books from the library yesterday:
Generation Earn by Kimberly Palmer. I’m neck deep in this one already, and really liking her approach. Less conservative than Dave Ramsey, less passionate as well, but it’s not geared at those struggling and drowning, it’s geared at those of us able to look a little longer term.
Minimalism in Web Design: A Guide – I really like the tips here. I haven't started seriously approaching the (unauthenticated) public-facing design of the Character Sheet Manager, but since the site has such a singular focus, I'll be taking a minimalist approach to keep things clean and easy.
I finished The Spook Who Sat By the Door yesterday morning. Sam Greenlee has one hell of a knack for sharp writing, and regardless of my not being a proponent for militantism, the book struck a chord with me. Greenlee got at the heart of the loneliness of being black in a nation and profession that both expects you to act white “enough” (but only so much) and simultaneously disdains you for doing so (as you disdain yourself). It was and is a fine line to walk.
