    What Makes You Happy Interview No.1 : Finding Happiness at Home

    What makes you happy? A new interview series.  What makes you happy? It’s a good question and one that all of us likely ask ourselves at one point in our lives. It’s an important thing to figure out and that can be a tough task at times. The reason this can be so complicated is that there’s no one size fits all answer to the question. There’s your usual suspects like family, travel, money or power and others but not all of these fill that inner void for everyone. I’ve always been fascinated by the concept of happiness.

  • Life!

    It’s rather interesting how quickly your life plans can change and I came to realize that in a big way this weekend. My girlfriend and I went for a walk and took the long way to the grocery store afterwards to enjoy some of the views of our beautiful state and also to get a gym(Pokemon Go – we’re nerds).

We had talked about home ownership in the past and I’ve talked about it being in my future on this…
