School, paying for school, getting good grades in school, dying alone, never being loved, falling into a hot pot at Yellowstone and boiling to death, getting in a car accident, losing something important, accidentally cooking my organs after being in a hot tub too long, getting shot, getting Ebola...
Lots of things worry me. I could write a whole Hub on things I worry about. Although I worry about different things at different times for varying lengths of time.
Worrying about having more than enough investments to tide one over in difficult times. The average person is only a few paychecks away from homelessness- that is quite a scary thought, especially with housing expenses being astronomically expensive. Housing in certain parts of the United States is becoming so prohibitedly expensive that only the wealthy could afford to purchase such housing. Many people are being foreclosed and put out in the streets. Yes, this is a lot to worry about.
Secondly, people are not able to retire because they have not put much forethought into their retirement savings and investments. They have to work longer than they have anticipated in order to live decently. In the future, there will probably be no social security because of the increasing numbers of aging Baby Boomers. Pensions are just not enough to live on, there must be other investments to afford a decent living. Those Baby Boomers who have no retirements investments and IRAs will be living either in penury or near penury.

If you could go back and give yourself advice at 16, what would it be?Now, that you know more than you did at 16 and life has taken you for turns and loops. Would that advice be something simple, easy or something to change your life.

For a good number of weeks my hubber score has hovered around the 100 mark. Two days ago it started falling, and as I write this, it is down to 89! If this keeps up, it will be 0 in a week! No rhyme or reason to it, but it leaves me wondering why this is happening. I know...
