One Year of Blogging
I can’t believe that one year has passed so fast.
And lots of (surprising) things has happened since I started.
It is always fun to see the start of an action to where we are now through some stats. I love numbers, so why not try to make some awesome graphs.
The chart above is a summarize of my 12 months of financial independence updates.
Stocks, is shares I have bought with my own money.
Appreciation, is the price of the funds that I have bought accumulated.
Cash, is my cash holding at a 3 % savings account.
Leverage, is money I have borrowed in order to invest.
As you can tell my portfolio has grown 200.000 DKK (30.000 $) since I started this blog. Which is an awesome development. Unfortunately that growth is not going to continue since I’m not working at the moment.
My investment strategy from here will be whenever the market drops a significant amount, I’m going to spend some of my cash holding in order to hit my old “all time high”.

Back At Oure Folk High School
I have just joined the next course here on Oure folk high school, which is named:
On this course they teach us how to become a captain on a boat. And makes sure that everything goes smooth. Right from the mechanics of the boat, to the mood of the guests on board.
I’m eager to learn more!!!
The last weekend my dad, sister and I sailed my dads boat home from Stege – Møn to Svanemøllen – Copenhagen. And that is where my dad official said to me that I’m allowed to take the boat by myself.
That is a huge honor when he says that. Because I know how much he concerns about the boat, and me for that matter. So a big shout out to my dad for trusting me as a captain.
Stock Market Decrease
So the market dropped a couple of percentages the last day. Which doesn’t concern me at all. The only thing that irritates me is that I don’t have too much cash to throw into the market if it really tanks.
I have just made a payment on 26.000 DKK (4.000 $) for the next three months on the school. Which could be the last money I spent this year. From november will I be on the boat in the pacifics and not having any expenses from there.
Which means my 2019 expenses will be about 80.000 DKK (12.000 $). And that will be a record low for me.
