One of the prettiest areas I have ever fished in my life.

Taxes and penalties

see more

Just to play devil's advocate, op is only "losing" the 10% penalty. The rest is taxes that he/she would have already had to pay.

Depends on OPs account and whether this is a traditional 401k or Roth 401k. The additional tax hit during working years from a traditional 401k is taxed at the marginal tax rate which may be higher than their tax rate in retirement.

Yea, I was making the probable assumption that it was a traditional 401k, however if it was a Roth, then it would still just be the 10% penalty because you'd have already paid taxes (and pay any taxes on the gains)

I took it in my mid 30s having not had school for quite a while. What worked for me was using youtube, teaching concepts back to myself so that I understood them in my own way, and being really collaborative with my classmates. Good luck!

Haha, my wife took a picture of me like this as well

Nice blackguard tele too!

*foreground, haha jk.

And thanks! I've had it for about a decade now and love it.

Nice. Considering a new one lists at about $900, that's not a bad deal.

Be honest. Do you have a turntable and do you use the typewriter?

Be honest, is it okay to like things for their aesthetics?

I never considered the fact that there is a Euro Aetos rod, seems like that is an amazing value! Now I'm eyeing the 3wt...

Must be the area...a pack of 5 green peppers for example here is almost $10. Bill for two is ~$100/week unless I want to eat nothing but rice and pasta. $2/lb chicken would be amazing!

My wife and I are in the same boat, we eat almost exclusively at home and always cook with fresh ingredients, our bill is typically between 80-100 a week. I don't get how you could do $50 for two people a week. We don't have an Aldi or Publix here in Denver though, so maybe that's it?

I will say, we started using the King Soopers app and loaded all of the coupons on there, it has brought our bill down ~$20 a week. I think shopping online has made us a bit more focused and deliberate.

Maybe I am overly conservative with my money, but really any old laptop will do. I would definitely never consider taking out any kind of loan to get an ipad or laptop.

I am using a macbook pro that I got a few years ago and it has served me really well

Everydollar really works well for my wife and me, I like the way it is laid out and the connectivity between accounts is nice.

For me personally, I don't think I'd really notice a huge difference between a 4 and a 3 wt. I think if I were in your shoes, I'd get a 5wt all arounder.

So close to being the beach boys board shirt!

I still can't get the hang of euro nymphing and I really want to! I guess I just need to keep at it.

Wow. I don't think I would have thought that was a wallet if I saw it on the street. Probably would have ignored it as trash. Hope it makes it back to the owner!

Holding up to the backhanded assholeness that r/Denver is infamous for!

This is hilarious, I basically took the same photo this morning at Bear Creek (Same net, same location, similar handling)! Link to pic here:

First thing's first, I hope your resume is entitled, "Trick Daddy, RN".

I think it all depends on the market you are applying to. Here in Denver, you need a BSN or an "in". I am in a dual enrollment program like yourself, but have also worked for my hospital for 6 years, so I have a very high likelihood of getting a job with my ADN (I will have to sign a contract committing to getting my BSN within 5 years)

Yea, definitely not Savile Row, since it is an American company, but still very high end (ie President Obama wore Oxxford)

Also, I wouldn't personally make this into an issue, but it is actually illegal for a nurse or preceptor to go in before you and disclose your sex. They are able to ask if it is okay to have a student, but not a male student...At least in Colorado!

I just finished my OB clinical in the spring AND I worked as a unit sec in L&D for 3 years. In my experience, the families and RNs really didn't have a problem with me being a male. Just be sensitive and helpful and it will all work out.

Go ask the folks at South Platte Fly Shop in Woodland Park or Michele at Tumbling Trout right in Lake George and buy the flies while you’re there - good people at each place and they post the flows from various water around the area. It changes constantly anyway...

I can vouch for Tumbling Trout. She was so insanely nice. She had me bring in my fly box and make sure I wasn't buying any un-needed flies and was super generous with her knowledge.

Dividend yield of the S+P is not 5%. Currently it's yielding 1.82%.

see more

I am no expert on investing, but comparing dividend yields to growth seems like comparing apples to oranges. If a stock pays 1.82% in dividends, and it grows 4.8% (the amount that S&P grew YTD), then your total profit on the investment would be 6.62%

No one is comparing growth to anything, it's yield to yield.

see more

comparing the dividend yield of an ETF to the interest growth of a savings account IS comparing growth to dividends...

My wife and I have stayed at the Avalanche Ranch outside of Redstone, CO and had an absolute blast, can't recommend them enough. The Crystal, Roaring Fork, Gunnison, and Frying Pan are all close.

I love fishing the BC up near Nederland. Pretty fish!
