So be Patriotic. Go out there and get rich. Get so obnoxiously rich that when that tax bill comes , your first thought will be to choke on how big a check you have to write.

Money Can Be Used To Repay Debt

My Birthday Wish

My birthday is tomorrow. I turn 26 and I’m trying to raise $260 in support of the JDRF. This is important to me because I;ve been living with Type 1 Diabetes since I was 8-years old. The JDRF helps fund research so that people like me can have better methods of managing their diabetes. Hopefully, they will one day fund the research that finally finds a cure.

I’m getting close to that goal. I only need 6 more people to give $10. If you are inclined to donate, I would really appreciate it. The title of this post is a link to the donation site. In case that’s too complicated here it is again:

The Importance Of Being Pseudonymous
