Being able to retirement is such a breath of fresh air, that it is hard to even wrap my head around it. It really does seem like freedom, because even though I loved my job for the longest time. The last 5 years or so were pretty terrible, because my mind was so preoccupied with retirement, and yet I wanted to work a few more years in order to increase my retirement savings. I am happy that I can now start searching for apartments for rent in South Tampa as I have exceeded my retirement goals considerably in the last two years, and now I am finally retired.
It was actually kind of hard for me to retire in the end, even though it had become a bit of a prison, due to my great longing to be done with work. That is because I have been earning more than ever before in the last 3 or 4 years, which is why I not only met my retirement goals, but exceeded them by a considerable amount. I have also made a good amount of profit off of some of my investments in that same time period. So overall, it has worked out well for me.
I have spent a lot of my years living in a rather frigid part of the country, and so I think that I have earned a retirement in Florida, where it is basically never cold. I know that there are freezes occasionally in Florida, and that they can have a serious impact on citrus crops. However, I think those are mostly in the Northern parts of the state. I am not sure if it ever gets down to freezing around here. I guess the record low is actually 34 for Tampa, so it has never been below freezing. That’s hard to imagine for me.
