Had a really busy week, so fewer links than usual
Japan's been taking a bit of a beating lately. Hope everyone is staying safe out there.
Here are this week's links:
- Scary stuff. Climate change is coming for all of us: Miami Will Be Underwater Soon. Its Drinking Water Could Go First.
- Wholeheartedly agree: I'd rather live big.
- A bootstrapped millionaire interview.
- Seems somewhat plausible: revisiting the melt-up scenario.
- Big changes on the horizon for nenkin? Abe ready to tackle Japan's retirement age and pension crunch.
- This is really good: things fall apart part 2.
- An introspective millionaire interview.
- Why my ideas never seem to get anywhere here in Japan? Newcomers.
- I'd love to try this someday: the magic of transocean cruises.
- Love the ikigai diagram in this post: Monevator's weekend reading.
Anything good in there? #1, #5, and #9 for me :)
Here's my list of books I am currently reading, just finished, or am about to start:
- The Dark Forest (book 2 in the trilogy that started with The Three Body Problem from last week)
- From Here to Financial Happiness (Jonathan Clements' new book -haven't started it yet but loved his last one)
- 12 Rules for Life (people seem to either hate this or love it, so I'm going to see for myself)
- Don't Live for Your Obituary (I like John Scalzi's blog as much as or more than his books, so I'm enjoying this collection of blog posts)
