Fresh out of depression

January 22nd, 2009 at 07:06 pm

I did not do anything stupid these past few days due to depression lol... More like spending time with my friends and my boyfriend.

For my challenge, I spend a little of it on clothes a week ago so I am good for now. My mutual funds have the biggest loss, I lost 2000$ dollars due to the recession so I am down to 5200$. My money in the bank has dropped significantly. Since I had 7200$ in mutual funds before, I will not included it in my challenge money. Who knows what will happend with the rest of the money this year... Hopefull, I will let it sit there and wait till it goes up. I don't need the money right now or in the near future.

Next Monday, I am starting my 4th semester in College. I am very excited to go back... I am getting really bored of having one month and a half of vacation now... Can't wait to go back. Not to mention, I have a nice schedule this semester. I cleaned my room and the bathroom today. I'm very happy at the result... My room look very welcoming. There's a few box here and there that I need to get rid of. For now, I guess I am just going to rest and think about it tomorrow.

Since last Friday, I did not spend anything other than a dinner and a movie with a friend I haven't seen for awhile. I watched the Unborn and the movie was pretty good. The plot actually make sense.

My next trip this summer is London for one to two weeks, 70% of chance that I'm going. If my savings go well or I don't plan on taking any summer courses. I have saved 500$ so far for the trip and I need approximatly another 1500$ for it. Hopefully, it will go well. I hope...

I know I keep changing my challenge money... I still have a lot of trips to do with my money lol.

Pictures of my trip in China will be posted soon!

    Keep your chin up! You can incubate your mutual fund money for many years. Good luck with next semester, it will keep your mind off the recession. It worked for me in 1982. Big Grin

    Little one.....first, you have about 1,000,000 years to recapture ANY losses your investments take. Keep investing at a very aggressive rate and you will NOT be disappointed.

    Regarding your travels, God blessed you with the time, ability and desire to take this time in your life to visit other places, the stories you will be able to tell your children and grandchildren someday will be priceless.

    Keep you chin up, focus on the goodness in your life and remember, "today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday". God bless you.
