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.
