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!
