  1. Agree with Brad…not a fan of the term “side hustle”. “Side” sort of de-emphasizes that the work may be your calling or true choice. Hustle can have a positive connotation (work hard) or a negative connotation (swindle). For some people, getting to their part-time work choice is the point of FI.

  2. Better movie option is to use the app MoviePass which lets you pay about $80/year and you can literally see one movie every day if you want and no extra waiting time, etc. So you can clearly see, if you are a movie-goer, if you go 7-8 times per year its paid for itself. The only limitation is that it is tied to one theater so you can’t go anywhere you want, just see if your favorite theater is part of the program and plan to go there every time.
