In light of me losing 20% of my cash investment in stocks as a newbie investor, I’d like to mention that there is a difference between intuition and whim. Intuition told me to not put my money in hippie-planet-love stuff like Oatly and Allbirds. Whim told me to be cool and buy stock in aContinue reading “Intuition v Whims”

New Year, New Strategy for this Newbie Investor
It’s official: this newbie investor is an MBA candidate, enrolled in classes, and I have no idea when I’m graduating! Really. I don’t know. Between the cost of paying the 37.5% federal tax on the tuition AND having a full-time, dead-end, low-paying job, I will see how it goes, then assess how many credits toContinue reading “New Year, New Strategy for this Newbie Investor”
Someone Said to Watch the Candlesticks?
My burning question is this: How do I know when to sell and when to buy? I’m glad I started my newbie investor journey with small amounts of money, because my white-collar bets NOW feel more like purchases my kids made in-app on Club Penguin. Why? Because NOW I have less money than I startedContinue reading “Someone Said to Watch the Candlesticks?”
My Stocks are Dipping Just Like My Job Search
I may have skipped a post, but I have been writing A LOT. This process of becoming myself again goes beyond being a newbie investor and learning about stocks. This newbie investor also needs to increase personal income, so more investing, and other life renewing activities, can happen! INTERVIEWS.

In case you don’t think that’s interesting, let me remind you that this blog is by a newbie investor for others like me. I know what anContinue reading “IPO? FOMO? YOLO?”
The “Short” of It
Sitting Tight; isn’t that what Newbie investors are encouraged to do? Admittedly, I barely know the basics beyond that advice, but I am slowly piecing it together. I’ve been DIY-crash-coursing on investing and crypto. Read some opinions on whether gold or crypto are better…BORING. Who knows? It’s a gamble. When I say I am piecingContinue reading “The “Short” of It”
More from the Beginner White-Collar Gambler
I’m a failed investor! Over the past month, I watched my little investment experiment go – oh wait, I forgot to mention that I went back into my Robinhood account and bought some Doge Coin right after my last post. Why did I pick that? I’d read several articles about wind energy being used toContinue reading “More from the Beginner White-Collar Gambler”
My First Bet
Well, I’ve done something new this week: I placed my first white-collar bet. I’m not exactly swimming in a stream of endless capital, and I’ve never even placed a bet in a casino! But after years and years of watching stocks and missing out on all the “big ones,” I jumped in. I signed upContinue reading “My First Bet”
