Reading all the past posts about people having X*net worth has got me bummed out. The problem is I have nothing to measure myself against. Regardless of how well or how unwell I'm doing, I consider it a sad state of affairs that I have to plan for retirement at 28.To give some background I first joined the Fool back in '01 one of my first posts describing my financial states can be seen here:http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=14805406Since that time I have: bought that newer car (Honda Civic $17k), paid off student loans (9k) and am currently debt free. I'm in a relationship but we're not living together and have no plans to do so any time soon.I rent an apartment and don't own a home.On the asset side it works out as follows:Toal net worth: 30k* 10k in RRSPs (think IRA for those in the US) no Roth here :(* 12k in e-/sleep well fund (6 months living expenses)* 2k in GIC* 4k in investments (cash, apcc, phizer)* 2k in checking accountEach month I sock away $600 as follows:- 200 to RRSP- 200 to E-Fund- 200 to cash in investments for future stock buysMy monthly take home pay is about $2200. Left over money (after the above) goes to expenses, misc costs and fun. :)I'm I being silly? Am I doing well? What thoughts or suggestions do people have? Thanks.R
