I made a weight loss planner worksheet in Google Sheets 6 months ago, and today on 6/18/2023 I am within 0.5 Lbs of my target! I made a spreadsheet so I could quickly experiment with more aggressive or more moderate strategies of fasting or exercise. This was important to me because I have a very busy and exhaustive work-life schedule of working 10 hours a day. So I’m switching between fasting, eating with exercise, and weight training.
So I played the scratch-off lotteries starting in 2020 when the Covid-19 pandemic started.
I won $1,000 a couple of times along with a bunch of smaller prizes on scratch-offs.
But I never won anything beyond that, which is why I started studying the odds and found that obviously the odds for the grand prize are always better with Pick lotteries.
So I started playing the smallest Pick lottery first, the Pick 2. I won that within 2 days.
Then I played the Pick 3 and won the $500 prize within a week.
Then I played the Pick 4 lottery at the $0.50 level and won $2,500 within 2 months.
Then I played the Pick 4 lottery at the $1.00 level and after about 6 months of playing $48 every week on Friday I finally won $5,000 just before Christmas in 2022.
I only played with quickpick combos, with 2 tickets. This sometimes was two tickets of $12, two tickets of $24, or a combination of those.
In total it cost me $4,000 in tickets, and I profited $1,000 off the $5,000 prize.
At the end of the day, do I recommend it?
No, playing the game took a tremendous amount effort.
Anytime I went to the store I also bought snacks and drinks which became a bad habit.
Once you get started, and you start losing money, you’ll become a victim of the sunk-cost fallacy.
When you play the smaller lotteries it’s more likely you can finally win and recover your loss, but with the larger lotteries you may never win or recover.
I recommend just saving money every week with an account from Acorns, Robinhood, or some other brokerage.
Saving money is much more reasonable than playing the lottery, because you can always access your savings when you need it in an emergency.
With the lottery, there’s no guarantee when or if you’ll win.
I went to the Caffeine and Octane event at the Avenues Mall. It was really cool to see all of the different types of cars that people brought out. There were a lot of vintage cars, muscle cars, and even some exotics. I had a great time walking around and looking at all of the different cars. Here are some of my favorites that I saw.
Caffeine and Octane is a monthly car show that happens at the Avenues Mall here in Jacksonville, Florida. I went for the first time this month and it was awesome! They had all sorts of makes and models of cars, from Ferraris to Porsches to Lamborghinis. I even saw a couple of Tesla’s there.
One of the coolest things about the event was that it wasn’t just limited to cars. There were also a bunch of motorcycle enthusiasts there showing off their bikes. And since it was at the mall, there were plenty of places to grab a bite to eat or do some shopping while you were checking out the cars.
I definitely recommend Caffeine and Octane if you’re into cars or just want to check out something different. It’s usually the first Saturday of every month, so if you’re free one morning go check it out!
One of my favorite cars that I saw was a white Ferrari Testarossa. It was in pristine condition and it looked like it just came off the showroom floor. The car had a beautiful red interior and it sounded amazing when the owner revved the engine. Another one of my favorite cars was a bright orange Lamborghini Countach. It was definitely one of the coolest looking cars at the event.
If you’re into cars, then I definitely recommend checking out the Caffeine and Octane event at the Avenues mall. It’s a great opportunity to see some really cool cars up close and personal.
I recently went to the Florida Fin Fest and took some pictures of the beautiful sunset. Here are some of my favorite shots!
