Today’s been a stretch. Partied a bit last night and spent most of the day doing accounting and cleaning, then took the kids out for dinner and some window shopping.
Last night we watched Wish Dragon, then afterward I played Control. It’s a very interesting game, creepy in a way that reminds me of the SCP Wiki. It’s actually been on my shortlist for a while, then Epic Games gave it away as part of their weekly rotation and I had to jump on it. I wound up playing it till everyone went to bed, then puttered around in Baldur’s Gate for a while then watched an episode or two of Enchantment and went to bed around 1:30 in the morning.
Slept in till 9:30 then the girls got to work cleaning the house while I did the house accounts. I was two months behind, owing to our mortgage refinance. It took me a while to figure out exactly how to reconcile all the payoffs and escrow payments; I’ve still got a lot to figure out, but it’ll have to wait until I get more details from our old escrow service. Then I did the girls finances, moving money from Lending Tree to my bank then to their respective BlockFi accounts. I’m still putting $25 worth of bitcoin in there from my Gemini account, but I may just need to stop that. They’ve got several hundred in GUSD that I might start converting to bitcoin instead of me putting fresh fiat into their accounts. I got to think about it.
The rest of our finances are ok. I don’t have enough cash to make it through the month, so there are going to be some hard choices coming up. The market just keeps ranging and there’s not much going on. I’m not spending as much time on Twitter right now, as things are just miserable on there right now. Everyone’s expecting things to get worse short term, but are long term bullish, so I just need to survive the next few months. Oh, and student loans come due in September.
The Alchemix alETH vault is supposed to go live any minute, but I’m mainly going to be keeping an eye on that to see how things might work out when they launch alBTC, as I was looking at using that to pay off the house or the loan debt. Yields are way down right now, so it’s kind of hard to figure out what to do.
I got an email from a blockchain fintech company based out of Oregon. They were looking for Python and full-stack devs, team leads and product managers. I told them lets talk.
