Hi RIP readers, welcome to the RIP (Bi)Weekly Learning Journal. Holy crap, if I let the material accumulate for two weeks the sheer amount becomes unhandleable! I don’t want to leave anything out, so I’m going to make two lists: the best stuff, each one accessible from the table ofRead more

How I track my finances using spreadsheets Part 1: Why and What
Hi dear RIP readers,
Today’s post has been sitting in my “Blog Post Ideas” list for a year now. I wanted to deep dive into my 2020 Net Worth Spreadsheet (and more) to help you following me in my journey, and (more importantly) to give you some hints in how to track your own financials.
Ideally, I wanted to write that post in a timely manner at the end of 2019, or in early January 2020.
Well, I didn’t. I procrastinated for months and months, giving precedence to other posts. Do not worry, the list of ideas is never ending. I don’t risk draining my creativity. I’ve ideas ‘stashed for the next 10 years at least.Read more

Weekly Learning Journal 2 (24/08/2020)
Hi RIP readers, Yes, another WLJ episode. The main risk of having a weekly side series like this one is that if I don’t publish enough “main content” the blog will be bloated with side content. I have a “main” post almost ready but, you know… it’s summer, amazing weather,Read more

Hi RIP readers, As you probably know I keep track of what I read/watch/listen/consume in terms of inputs. I use Roam for my Personal Knowledge Management, productivity and daily journaling. Yes, it’s not free and it’s not cheap, but as a beta user I’m still enjoying it for free 😉Read more

Quick 2020 Q2 Financial Update
Hi RIP readers, Here’s a quick 2020 Q2 (April, May, June) Financial Update. I plan to keep it “short”. April has been covered in a previous confused post, so this is essentially a May-June 2020 update. I think you should know by now, but let me repeat: I keep myRead more
