And Class Continues!
Today was the first day I finally had the chance to have a relaxed day. It was not hot and the class went by relatively smoothly. I had the chance to learn something new about myself and I am about to do a presentation on my group's marketing portfolio.
I decided today at class I would try taking notes from class by using my laptop. I see other students do this as well, so I gave it a try. I think I just found the perfect way for me to take notes! The laptop made it much easier for me to digest the things I write so that I could actually read instead of having to write in a notebook and decode it later. I still have to copy graphs and such on a notebook, but for the vocabulary, I could type for hours and not have to worry about hand issues. I also can sleep better knowing I am helping save a few trees by doing this. In all honesty, I would not have found this out back in high school because I never took my laptop to school. With that, I would take notes on a binder and never look at them again. This is far simpler and the process is a lot more faster.
After many hours of group collaboration, my group finally made a stable and safe portfolio. The theme we chose was to make a recession proof market and make the money grow as much as possible in the most constant way. We decided to invest most of our money in companies that are still growing that way our money can grow more, even though there is a lot of risk. That is what life really is, taking risks, and the only thing we can do is work hard and hope that those risks will fall through and we would be successful.
