This weekend Sean lectured me about starting a retirement fund so that I can have enough money to stop working at some point when I’m old. He said some stuff about not being dependent on social security, and how I should invest, blah blah blah.
I wasn’t planning on being dependent on social security. In fact, I wasn’t planning at all.
Now that I feel like I should be investing in my retirement I’ve been thinking of things that would be fun to do as retirement plans.
Open a bakery. I’ve always liked to bake, and I think it would be fun to get up early every day and make yummy pastries. The only issue is that I really don’t like cake. Although I am interested in learning about cake and cake decorating.
Own a campground. My mom has always talked about doing this. It just seems like a good way to meet interesting people. Also, camping is always fun, and you could have big bonfires all the time. S’mores everyday!
Tutor kids. I pretty much do this already, but it would be cool to spend a few hours a day helping kids out and that be my only job. Then I could be a fun old person other times.
Volunteer at the historic cemetery. Atlanta has a historic cemetery where there are lots of cool dead people buried. And, hey, if I’m old I should familiarize myself with death, right?
I think these are fantastic retirement plans. Now I just need to start saving… Sigh.
