Inspired by the huge "Net worth at 30" thread, I'd like to start a similar one but add a critical and relevant ingredient.
TC/NW (net worth)
Happiness (details appreciated, but not required)
This app highlights everyone's drive for the almighty dollar, but rarely do people talk about the non-monetary costs/rewards associated with their financial goals.
30, TC180K, NW360k?
Could be a lot worse off, but I haven't really settled in and found the sweet spot. I have incredible stories and general life experiences, but just went through a breakup and, therefore, don't have immediate house and family plans (which really give a sense of purpose). Could also use a bump in TC to establish family viability in the Bay Area without having to commute 90 minutes each way.

9.5/10 - I love the freedom of being single and independent in the Bay! I could literally buy a ticket to Africa in the middle of the week and it would be okay. Work isn't too stressful and I find time to enjoy the little things in life that we see everyday but still miss out on like sunsets, music and working out. I guess I'm just happy and grateful with what I have. Also like Genie tells Aladdin, there isn't enough money and power to satisfy anyone's greed in this world, so let's not drink out of that cup! Maybe it would be nice to share the happiness with a partner, hence the -0.5 pts.
