Early Retirement

Pseudonymous

If you’re like me, you dream of the day when you retire. Or better yet, the day when you win the lottery so that you can retire early (Bonus: you’re young enough to actually enjoy it). You know what I’m talking about: the day when you are free to do whatever you want, whenever you want, and have the means to do it. After all, isn’t that what we labor so hard for? We work 40+ hours a week, invest in RRSPs so that one day we can retire with our nest egg and take it easy. After all, didn’t God tell us to be good stewards of money?

提早退休

Pseudonymous | 中文翻譯:蔡穎

也許你象我一樣夢想著退休後的生活。或更棒的是,當你中了樂透彩劵,就可以提早退休了,而且額外的好處是你還夠年輕,可以享受生活。你明白我的意思:就是可以在任何時間、任何地點、有足夠的財產做任何你希望做的事。這不正是我們天天努力工作想得到的嗎?我們一星期工作四十個小時以上,將薪水投資到註冊退休儲蓄計畫裡(RRSP)讓我們有一天能在儲蓄金窩裡退休享受。畢竟,上帝不是要我們做金錢的好管家嗎?

漫步在沒有工作的小徑上

*Exciting new writer*

Pseudonymous | 中譯:蔡穎

被解雇不是件好玩的事! 一般來說,人的身分建立在他的職業上(雖然這是不應該的)而我尤其以工作而自豪 –– 我是一名時裝設計師,我畢業於多倫多的Ryerson大學,我是個藝術家,我充滿創意,我與眾不同、獨一無二 –– 而且為此我感到驕傲!得到我第一份工作是個令我驕傲的一刻 –– 有名望的工作室,高級職稱,在市中心工作,而且做得是我喜愛的工作。一切都安置妥當、向前進,至少我是這麼認為的。

Welcome

"Double-edged"is bilingual blog in affiliation with Truth Monthly, a Chinese Christian monthly print publication based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

This blog features mostly original writings as well as comics, poetry, and other works of art by local Christian young adults.

For more information or to submit your own writing, please email tm.double.edged@gmail.com

Why “Double-edged?”

The name speaks of, not only the biblical reference from Hebrews 4:12, but also of a generation of young adults who are bilingual and bicultural. This blog would be the connecting point and gateway into these two cultures--from a Christian perspective. It is our prayer that, through this blog and its articles, young adults will turn to God and be strengthened in their faith.
