Welcome to This Week's Brupdates!

It's been a rough week as I've felt very overwhelmed, lots of decisions that aren't being made at the moment, but in their approach require me to prepare and it's been rough. Prayers help, and knowing these make ya smile makes me smile too :)

That said, nothing on site this week, but I have been watching a lot of docu-series's on History channel and I've got to say, history is very interesting...when it's not a book :P

The Best Advice for Saving as Much as You Can
There’s one question I hear as a personal finance writer more than any other. It’s not how to game the stock market, or become a billionaire—it’s simply how to make a budget work while still saving enough to retire comfortably.

I liked this one because some of my decisions are financial and this picture is from It's a Wonderful Life, a wonderful Christmas movie. This also promotes a mindset shift from "Spend now, pay later" to a "Save now, spend later" mindset to avoid debt. There's a lot to this, so no soap box, but read the quick tips :)

Stop Tossing Your Banana Peel on the Trail
That “organic litter” you just threw? It’ll still be around in a year.

I honestly thought the food dissolved much quicker, but a banana peel take 2 years! An apple core takes 2 months! Crazy stuff. Like come on bacteria. Step up your game and eat faster.  

The Mystery of Florida’s Cannonball-Eating Spanish Fort
The secret is inside the walls themselves.

Florida people and their shenanigans strike again...

And for all those looking for a more in-depth read:

No One Can Explain Why Planes Stay in the Air
Do recent explanations solve the mysteries of aerodynamic lift?

Let me give you one of the greatest internet memes in relation to the above article:

Todd Howard explaining how his game seems lifelike and his quote "It just works"

Perhaps one day we'll know why. Till then, we'll just keep imitating birds.

Quote of the Week

"There has to be at least one day of the year that reminds us that we're here for something else besides ourselves." - Eric Sevareid (on Christmas)

Wrap Up

I hope you like the fun facts in this week's episode and gained some more internet knowledge by learning of a meme from ages ago. If not, well then maybe you learned we don't understand planes or why Floridians are so weird.

No matter, I'm glad you came. Glad you tuned in. I hope you have a wonderful new year, get some inspiration from these Brupdates for resolutions, and continue to tune in.

Though the calendar number changes this week, remember you are your actions. What actions are you taking to become the person you want to be?

As always,

Thanks for Reading!
