Behind One Mad Life

We are MadLady, MadMan, MadDogge, and MadCat.
At least for the time being.

Cat & Dog - Us
When we achieve financial independence, our masks will come off.

What is One Mad Life?

Indoor Skydiving – 2017

One Mad Life is a story of our travels, a chronicle of our journey to financial independence, a journal of progress towards owning a farm, a gathering place for millennials like us, and so much more. We hope you’ll join us in forging a new kind of path in life. We hope that you will learn from us just as we hope to learn from you. We hope, that together, we can change not just our lives and how a “normal life” is perceived, but maybe the world as a whole.

This is a place where travel will be talked about, where frugal tips will be shared, where minimalism will be preached, and where life will be lived. Here I hope we can all plan out how to make it to each of our goals. There will be no judging, and help will always be free. We’re always happy to listen, help, and cheer you on, no matter whether it’s minimalism, early retirement, living frugal, or other.

Who are MadLady and ManMan?

Dreaming Millennials in search of a life different from those that came before us. We live in an apartment in OTP Atlanta. We go to college, we work all day, and we try to have fun. Our goal is financial independence by 35 while traveling the world on weekends and owning an organic event farm.

10 Fun Facts About Us:

  1. We met in July of 2014, moved in together in April of 2015… more to come soon!
  2. We took our future into our hands in 2017. We plan to hit our goal by 2027.
  3. We’re both in college while working full time. (We need anonymity to keep the jobs we currently have.)
  4. We plan on moving to the West Coast after we graduate.
  5. We have no small humans, just a cat and a dog.
  6. Our Vizsla gets treated better than any child I’ve known. Our rescue cat has a 6 foot tree cat tree (mostly to stay away from the dogge).
  7. We’re obsessed with the Great Outdoors. We go on hikes as much as humanly possible and want to own a farm one day.
  8. We want to travel the world one day too. Not sure how we are going to own a farm and travel, but we’ll do it. We’ve been known to do the impossible.
  9. We never eat fast food and home cook almost every meal.
  10. MadLady is the creator and voice of the blog, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
