Welcome to the Weekly Quick Hits Roundup!
If you’re new here, every week I write a weekly wrap-up of things that were going on here at Young Adult Money, a few personal updates/thoughts, and finally a few posts I read this week that I thought were worth sharing.
We also have our giveaway roundup every Friday. This Friday there are 73 giveaways listed this week that end today (10/10) through next Thursday (10/16).
Happy Friday everyone!
Remember when I said I was going to a wedding last weekend? Well I spent a grand total of 10 minutes at the reception, because I had nearly lost my voice from a sinus infection that got pretty bad by Friday.
I also noticed how much more you value being able to do things when you are sick. I couldn’t even enjoy a wedding reception, which requires little more than talking to other people, eating food, having drinks, and dancing! I also have missed working out this week (yes, it takes a while to recover), but it’s also interesting how much extra time you have when you don’t work out – I’m not surprised some people get in the habit of skipping it entirely, all the time.
My life has been consumed a bit by football, especially daily fantasy sports. My friend who owns a DFS blog (here’s my second post on his site) took down a cool $6,500 by coming in 8th place in the FanDual Sunday $1.5 Million tournament (it’s too bad he didn’t finish higher, though – first got $150k!).
I haven’t had much success in NFL betting and might wait until the NBA comes around so I have time to build a data model. I already have it mapped out in my head, so hopefully it isn’t too difficult to create. In the process I will actually improve my database and spreadsheet skills – always a plus!
Anyway that’s what’s been going on with me. How about you?
