four. oh. wunk.

I am super excited about investing into my 401k. We just finished our meeting and I'm glowing all over.

I'm young and it's time to get started early. I heart my job and their huge percent contribution with no cap* Oh baby baby!

I'm going to invest internationally, and then specifically with technology. And then also do a boring half-stocks-half-bonds for part of it, because it's pretty much guaranteed. I don't want all my $$ in the same place. And I will NOT invest in anything that could possibly put my money into The Place Which Will Not Be Named.

Considering the match that my job does (50% what what), and that after Americorps I still feel like I'm rollin' in the dough (read: frugal) I think I'm going to invest quite a bit. I can always lower it, but can't 'up' it except for every quarter.

*Not that I can afford up to the governmental cap anyway.

See, it's talk like this (and the home-buying talk) that make me want to get a job and stick with it so I can retire soon.

well, sticking with the job isn't necessary, you can transfer your 401k from job to job.

I feel like a grown-up. Tis very odd.

PLEASE go to sudandivestment.org and make sure that the stocks and funds you choose are NOT helping fund genocide in Darfur. At the very least, do NOT invest Fidelity or Berkshire Hathaway or their funds/stocks.

no worries. I am being very careful about where I invest! Thank you for the heads up!
