Run Club

I’ve decided to run a 10k this year. Running is difficult for me and I”m looking forward to this challenge. This is the first run of the year for me. I’ll track the progress on my blog. Click the post for the times and how far I ran.

Scheduling trips

One big item I learned in 2016 was to schedule my trips in advance. I definitely didn’t do this last year and went nowhere! I subscribe to Tim Ferriss’s advice of 90% of the benefit of planning trips ahead is the anticipation. I’m looking forward to Launch festival April 6th and 7th in San Francisco, a Cal Poly reunion trip May 5-7th, and need to plan a biking and road trip for the summer. Excited. Some other fun stuff is in the works too..

Fed Meeting...rates up or down?

The Federal Reserve is finishing up its two day meeting today and is widely expected to raise the discount rate by .25%. The bigger implications are where rates are going after the announcement. The 10 year treasury in the United States is up .57% since the election which is an huge move. I have a feeling the trades have already been made ahead of time and barring some crazy Fed language we’ll see yields calm down a bit.
I have a hard time believing Donald Trump is so “inflationary” and it seems more like a trade is being made.
The short interest in the 10 year has hit it’s high for the year and I imagine some traders might get caught today. It’ll be interesting to see.

Charlotte guest post

Hi! I’m Charlotte! I don’t know what else to type. um… I like dogs and mac and cheese. I’m 13.

More coding

I am enjoying this way to blog using Jekyll. It is interesting and I need a bit of work to get the structure and organization down. Once that is figured out, I’m loving the speed and simplicity of static websites!

What I'm doing now

I’m riding my road bike twice a week, diving deep into audio books and podcasts, and originating loans with LenderFi. Also, I enjoy coding in my spare time.
