Topics: Gift Giving, High Income But Broke, Working The Holidays
Every week, I hold a JOURNAL CLUB. After manually filtering through the millions of articles out there, I present a few that I impacted my life this week. This will also help lay the foundation for some of the topics that we’ll dig into deeper on this website.
Here's our Journal Club for the week, enjoy!
Ah, the season of giving is upon us. It’s Christmas Eve, what did you get your loved ones? I spent a lot of time researching and I’m glad I came across articles like this one to keep things in perspective. Check out this post by Centsibly Rich, Give the Best Gift They Will Never Forget.
Along a similar theme, Physician on Fire hits the nail on the head. You have to read What To Give Those Who Have Everything.
- This next article reminded me of my previous post, Why Many Doctors Live Paycheck to Paycheck. I talked about a physician making $250,000 having issues getting ahead. Senior Resident ups the ante in his post, How To Make $400k/year and Still Be “Broke.
- I work a good number of holidays throughout the year. I take it as a part of the job I signed up for, but I can’t say I’m happy to do it. Of course, I’d rather be home, but it was nice to hear from Life of a Med Student and his take on it in How I Learned to Enjoy Working Holiday Shifts.
Let me tell you, as a busy father of two, one of the best purchases I've made over the last few years is our Christmas Tree. Yes, it's artificial, but it's a snap to setup (the lights are already part of it) and we still get to enjoy hanging the ornaments on it. For that fresh tree smell we use a nice candle, and I'd say it works pretty well. Here's a quick pic:
I’m thankful for another holiday season I get to share with my family. Hope you enjoy yours. Have a great holidays everyone!
