The idea of creating a blog has been on my mind for awhile, so I decided to do something about this. I read a few finance/savings blogs on a daily basis and I thought it was a great idea for me to start one as well.
Here's my goal for this blog: track my financial goals, sometimes rant about things that bug me, and give some info about what's going on with my life.
About me: I currently live in Northern California (the Bay Area), but I might be moving soon (more info about this later). It's an exciting and scary time in my life because I'm almost done with college. I am almost 23 and have completed my Economics degree. In this last semester, I'm finishing my Finance degree. I have been investing in stocks since the age of 15 and it has been my passion ever since. I also have other interests that include: basketball, watching sports, going to the gym, reading, listening to all types of music, checking out new places, and bowling (but I'm quite bad).
Goals: I tend to be humble when it comes to stocks and options, because I know that there's a ton of information I still need to learn. Investing is one of the areas where you can never know enough, and when you think you know a lot- something will happen to put you back in your place. But after saying that, I do have extremely high goals for myself. I want to be the best investor out there and
If I happen to fail at this I do have a back-up goal: hopefully attain $4 million by the age of 45-50 so I can retire and travel the rest of my life (5% through muni bonds would generate $200k/year, which should be plenty).
Besides these main goals, I do have smaller goals.
1. Graduate with a GPA of over 3.6 (I'm currently at a 3.68 and only have two classes to go. I should hit this goal as long as I don't screw up).
2. Have liquid savings of at least $20,000. This was the original goal, but it has now been revised to $25,000.
My next post will detail my financials.
Please post any comments you have!
