Combatant Gentleman Review: Clothes for the modern office warrior.
I’ve always had more expensive tastes when it comes to things. More expensive might not be the right word. Instead, I value quality. I would much rather pay $50 for a toaster I will never need to replace, rather than paying $20 for a toaster I have to replace ten times. From the cameras and computers I buy, to the clothes I buy, I tend to look for the most affordable, highest quality option. Sometimes this means spending a lot more on something. I’m not afraid to pay more if I will get a higher quality, more refined product as a result. Additionally, I’ve always been one to spend more time doing research to make sure when I do spend the big bucks I don’t regret it. So far I’ve had a pretty good track record. What happens when you apply this to the clothes you wear though?

Now was time for a new suit.Continue reading →
Fair warning this is a longer YouTube video (15 minutes) but it is so insightful it’s worth it. Set in Canada (but should resinate with American’s as well) it talks about something we are all familiar with. Speeding. But more than that, it talks about the absurdity of many speed limits and touches on the fact that sometimes the police don’t even know the law.
So I’m still here, I’ve just been really busy with school lately. That being said I thought I would spend this time to go on a rant (instead of doing my homework like I should).
We all hopefully have some. Most of us want more. Yet the majority can’t manage it.
So I’m not a genius when it comes to money. I am currently in debt (give me a break, it’s college loans. Never any credit card debt and I never took out a loan for my car). But I do have a few ‘rules’ to help people manage money. Let me start off by saying this is better to do when you aren’t in massive amounts of debt.
