A Dream Come True

So ever since I took my personal financial planning class I have dreamed of having a Vanguard Roth IRA. Well, my dream has finally come true. Since I quit working, I had to transfer my 401k somewhere, and into this little baby it went. I will need to pay taxes this year since contributions to a 401k come out of your paycheck pre-tax and Roth IRA contributions are post-tax, but since Roth earnings grow tax free, that's okay with me. My dream has come true.

I just wanted to post this in case any of you were beginning to think I'm not a total nerd. Now I have set everyone straight.

P.S. I had a great birthday and will attempt to do a post about it sometime later this week.

I am excited for you too, which also secures my nerdiness. It feels good.
