Passwords should be disposable
Passwords should be long - as long as you want to make them. The longer the password, the bigger its entropy. Mathematically, guessing the password sallysallysally will take longer computing time than sally. Websites or apps that ask for 8-16 character passwords should not be asking for a max character limit of passwords. Instead they should encourage users to create long passwords. Also, do not restrict the user to only use certain special characters - let them use all of them.
52 posts in 52 weeks: result

It’s the end of 2018 and I published 18 posts (not counting this post). 18 is less than 52, but better than 0. The year started off with a post a week, but I quickly fell behind.

Invest in Index Funds instead of stocks
You don’t have the time or the energy to follow stocks, which ones to invest, which ones to not. When to invest, when to take money out. Instead, invest your money in Index Funds. There is a saying that a monkey throwing darts on a board with stocks can beat the market. That is because stock performance is difficult to predict. You can predict overall market easier than individual stock market performance.
