I am Cindy, a thirty-something born and raised New Yorker currently living in Brooklyn, NY. I work as a software developer at a small company, but I have a nagging desire for financial independence and early retirement. My plan for this blog is to document the journey I embark on of trying to achieve financial independence while also enjoying the beauty and attraction that NYC and this world have to offer. I intend to serve up posts on a variety of topics including life in NYC, travel, personal finance, investing, food, drink, crafting, and more. I hope you enjoy!
