Hi, everyone. I decided to check my retirement account online to see how it is doing. I don't check it very often, so I figured New Year's Eve would be the perfect time. I have only been contributing since July and already have $3432.36. Wow. I had no idea it would grow so much in only 6 months. At this rate of growth, I could have close to $10000 by the end of next year. I like this. We can just adjust how it is invested at any time, but we can't choose specific stocks, bonds, etc. I think I will let it ride another year and then open an IRA in 2008. While I love working in my library, I don't want to have to work when I am 70 or be living on food stamps and social security. I want to have fun and travel then.
