Welcome one and all to Secondhand Thoughts, a blog about navigating this weird world they call “being an adult”. I am a thirty-something woman living in Vancouver, Canada, and I am still very much in the learning process of being responsible and figuring out what on earth is happening on a day-to-day basis.

I have no answers, only musings and the occasional grumpy rant. After discovering personal finance blogs were actually enjoyable, I devoured as many as I could and set out on a FIRE rampage. I am working towards it as fast as I can, and having a blast doing so. This site here is my accountability, written for all to see, and a chance for me to practise writing in something that is not text speak or dry academia, but somewhere in the middle. Any questions, comments or thoughts? Let me know (but don’t be a dick).

**Also, this site is very much a work in progress because I have no idea what I am doing. Please bear with me while I figure it out!

Vancouver. My favourite place ever.
