Wealthygrad.com: The Lowdown on Credit Cards [Mar. 6th, 2008|11:25 pm]
The College of Creative Studies

Have credit cards kind of been a mystery to you? What's your credit report, what's your credit score, how is it affected? Is your interest rate the only thing that matters? Do you really NEED to have credit in the first place?

If any of these questions have run through your head, or if you didn't know you had to ask these questions, check out my latest blog post on credit cards.

Hey everyone,

It's been a while, but I finally put another blog post on wealthygrad.com. Check it out. It's a good one. I mean, they're all good ones, so I guess this is just me being consistent. Or something.

Anyway, read my blog.

The Anti-Budget Budget on wealthygrad.com [Jan. 7th, 2008|08:54 pm]

Hey everyone. Hope you all had a fabulous New Years. I just posted another blog entry. This one's about how to start budgeting without feeling like you're on a budget. It's a system I use myself.

Also, you can now subscribe to my blog on the right hand side of the page so you'll always know when there's a new entry.

As I was writing the anti-budget budgeting piece, I realized I had to write about something else first.

The latest post is about dissecting the meaning of financial freedom, which, very briefly, is the concept that when you are financially free, it means you only work if you want to, not because you have to.

The anti-budget budgeting piece is almost done and will be posted very shortly after this one.

This one's about buffalo and finding your purpose.

My plan is to do one to two entries a week, alternating between basic money principles and basic how-to's and action steps.

i have a blog and it's about money [Dec. 10th, 2007|06:31 pm]
The College of Creative Studies



i have heard too many desperate stories and gotten too many bewildered questions from friends and acquaintances in their 20's about money and debt that i started a blog to:

1) answer some of those questions,
2) offer tips and resources on how to get out of debt, stay out of debt, and start saving and more importantly, INVESTING your money,
3) expose more people to the idea of creating passive income streams and finding ways to make your money work for you. this last one i need to find out for myself as well, but i do know it is possible and i figure documenting my journey might benefit others as well, and
4) i want to show people there are other OPTIONS besides working for your money. Options mean choices and choices means freedom. Financial freedom is the most elusive kind we have in this country and I feel it affects our ability to experience many of our other freedoms.

there will be no get-rich quick schemes here and i'm not here to tell you it's going to be easy or fast because it's not. what it comes down to is what it always comes down to--self-discipline, self-sacrifce, and self-forgiveness--because the reward in the end is absolutely 100 percent worth it.

i heard a great quote once: people don't change until the pain of change is less than the pain of staying the same. maybe right now, paying the minimum on your credit card doesn't feel like much, perhaps amounting to slightly nagging voice in the back of your head. it's not the monumental explosions but the continuous stream of small annoyances that really destroy people, the gradual wearing down until you don't even realize you've hit bottom.

so yeah, read my blog. this was a really intense post, mostly because i feel like people don't take the effects of money on their lives as seriously as they should and i've heard too many stories from people way past their 20's who wish they did.

take care of this shit now so you're not sitting in it later.

Okay, so the story goes that the three queens of Monstrous Little Productions are graduating and were thinking, "hey, what could be a really cool way to end our senior year?" An original play.

So, Chelsea Sutton wrote this play called "99 Impossible Things". And she directed it too. It's full of imaginary friends, magic-less magicians, guardian angels and sea monkeys.

Yes, we said SEA MONKEYS.

So come out and see it!!

99 Impossible Things will be showing on:

Friday, June 1 @ 8pm at the Old Little Theater

The College of Creative Studies


CALLING ALL SINGERS, ACTORS, AND DANCERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Shrunken Head Productions, the only musical theater group on campus, is holding auditions for its Fall production of Fiddler on the Roof. The auditions are taking place Friday October 6th at 7pm in the Old Little Theater on UCSB's campus.

We look forward to seeing you there.
If you have any questions, please contact Elle, the assistant director/vocal director at broadwaybaby@umail.ucsb.edu.
