Retired AF —- Rat race escapee 2/28/2018

It’s been a while since my last update. Decided to say “Fuck it” and quit my job in February at 46 years old. Best decision ever.

Been drinking lots of Shiner, going to the gym, and even found a new girlfriend who is retired at 40. She’s retired because she’s from a wealthy California family....but hey there’s more than one way to become FI.

Still investing here and there but mainly decompressing and enjoying life.

This photo is of the gf’s backyard and her flying border collie.

Will post more frequently....I promise.


  1. Nice to read about you and know that everything its OK. So, Are you FI or perhaps you are thinking find a new job? Please, let us know about your investments.

    Best luck. Enjoy!!!

  2. MDP, Welcome back!! That back yard looks nice especially this time of year! Looking forward to hearing more from you.


  3. Congrats! Looking forward to hearing the logistics of your retirement. I'm coming up on 45 and eyeing my exit in the coming few years as well. The only holdup from pulling the trigger now is it's a lot harder to feel financially comfortable with kids still in the picture.

  4. Miss those monthly updates. Look forward to some posts!

  5. Way to go Big Guy, and congratulations on retiring! I am strongly focused on the same goal, and will get there soon enough! Enjoy, relax, get healthier and happier!

  6. MDP,

    Whether your dumping thousands into a handful of stocks, or suddenly liquidating a portfolio, to now announcing an immediate retirement - your blog is never been short on surprises! I must admit, your absence has made me curious as to what you may be up to as of late. Glad you are doing well and congrats on your retirement. Looking forward reading future updates.


  7. Whoah. Congrats. I hope it works out for you. I quit my job 18 months ago, and while I may need to work again someday, it has definitely been worth taking the semi-retirement break earlier than planned.

  8. Hello there,

    First of all a big congratulation to you. Quitting Job is really a bold decision one can really make!! Good to here that you are going to post more. So after quitting job...are you going to invest in FOREX Market?
