My precious baby Richards Packaging Income Fund (RPI.UN) is doing kind of fine

I hope you had enjoyed my last three posts with my unknown Mr. Handsome lol. I had some other stuff to post. I also went to Little Italy with the past weekend and Old Montreal. We have really awesome weather so I went a bit everywhere it was free for Formula 1. So more pictures to come! I was finally able to complete my monthly expense post for the month of May. I was able to save $1,175.59 without much deprivation. I hope to save again big bucks in June. That way, I should be able to cover my vacation expenses. This month so far, I had sold for $84 worth of stuff on Kijiji. Basically second-hand items that I no longer use. I wish to sell a bit more, but it's not exactly an easy task to sell stuff on Kijiji. I won't expose my trick here because it's already hard enough to sell anything at all there, and you already gifted by knowing my best stocks.

In term of budget, I had received bad news, my monthly rent had increased by $10. Starting on July 1st, my rent will be $690, instead of $680 per month. Currently, in Montreal, there's a lack of available apartment. I had tried before to find another apartment, but it's terribly difficult to find a clean well-maintained apartment block where rent is under $700. I had visited many dirty places. Montreal is getting more and more expensive, as well as dirtier. I don't expect to stay forever here. Montreal is a debt hole track. There's a lot of things to do here, but Montreal is not a functional city. Nothing work well, there's construction a bit everywhere, public transportation is jam pack. During the summer, it can get extremely hot in the summer. I am just happy that I don't have to use public transportation everyday. All quality services are hard to receive. Montreal is not the perfect spot where to grow as an individual and to have a nice career. People are just distusting here. I find Quebeckers to have poor intelect. I try to minimize my interactions with them to the strict minimum while having to be here. but just give me a few more years, and I will be out of this hell zone.

This being said, today wasn't exactly a good day for the TSX and my portfolios are doing ok. My non-registered portfolio closed today session at $119,458.32, my TFSA portfolio at $71,896.22, and my RRSP portfolio at $45,107.9‬0. My really fabulous Richards Packaging Income Fund (RPI.UN) gains 6.75% today. RPI.UN had been in my portfolio since July... 2016! I also remembered that UFO song. It's been 3 years ago. I guess I didn't take time to read myself because a sentence is kind of sounding strange in there lol. But it always make me laugh to read old posts for all kind of reasons. I am just really greateful to be an anonymous blogger. In your face.

I have a feeling you're not hanging with the right people and the right places. There are tons of investor and stock meetups, and options trading, conferences, and groups in Montreal every week, with very smart people. I don't hear you talking about them, so I assume you're not taking part. We're thousands of people working on A.I., games, film, business and engineering in Montreal. We're not dumb people. We're not living paycheck-by-paycheck in rented apartments in our early forties, we're owners, entrepreneur, creators, parents, etc. If you hang only around poorer neighborhoods and poorer people, it's going to be the same in every city. It has nothing to do with Quebec. People are people. There is a wide variety. Just meeting new people and changing entourage can make a huge change to your appreciation of the city and the people in it.


Thank you
