FI30 or so

The international stock markets are coming down and the current value of all my investments and assets are going down with it.
It is not pleasant but it is expected and it does enable some interesting purchases of shares that even I find affordable now.
I normally calculate my financial independence number - or my assets - on the first of every month, but not this month.
I see it drop on all accounts and I just can't be bothered at the moment. It will drop until it can drop no more and the will be nothing to do about it. Everything I hold is bought for long term so I am not selling anything. Just close my eyes and go and stare into the sunshine.

I am also travelling for work, living in an unrealistic bubble of hotel, trains and heavy mashinery, working 7am-11pm and having random meetings with random people.

It will be fine, I will stick my head into the sand financially for another month.
Later this month, I'll have a look at it.
Now: life, work and the thesis professor is calling.
