 I’ve become a respectable adult!  My dad has forced/convinced me to invest a good portion of my writing income.  I have a diversified portfolio!  I was trying to research some companies I wanted to buy stock in (including the parent company of the company I work for), and it’s been really interesting to see which companies are and aren’t public (damn you, J.Crew!) and which ones are incredibly expensive to buy into (OMG Amazon).  I mostly invested in “safe” companies like Pepsi, Kraft, and Johnson & Johnson, which don’t have big fluctuations and pay yearly dividends.  Mama’s gotta put that money to work!
