BTW this has not been a lost decade for me, by any means.


In 2000 I graduated from college with $15,000 student loan debt.

In 2010 I have $270,000 in savings, and $140,000 in equity in my home (NYC co-op apartment). According to intercst's retire early calculator I could FIRE in four or five years, although I strongly doubt I will leave my job at that time as the habit of work is too strongly ingrained.

I seem to have a decent career path ahead of me, at least for the next 10 years or so. But it's nice to have options.
