My I.Project is not a midlife crisis. Primarily because I plan to live longer that 67. Secondly, were I having a thirdlife crisis I wouldn’t be limiting myself on how much I wanted to spend. If one finds themselves having a crisis, would they be even attempting a budget? No.
It’s been accurately pointed out that being responsible is such a core tenant of who I am, that I’m unlikely to succeed being truly irresponsible. It’s been put forth that even were I to try and do something completely irresponsible that I’d end up executing it in the most responsible irresponsible way possible, rendering the activity a mostly-responsible one.
To all the nay-sayers: you’re likely correct, but sod off. I can only do what I can do and let the bills fall where they may.
