Made my first stock sale today, 21% return in a little over a month. Taxes are going to take a chunk of course, but at my current bracket it won't hurt much. Probably could have gotten more, but didn't feel like pushing my luck. Putting the money right back to work, maybe someday this silly hobby of mine might actually turn out useful. Can't really afford to just throw a ton of money at it, so I just toss a little at a time in the fund and let time and patience pay off. It'll take a while, but five or six years down the road I might be able to use it to treat us to something special now and then. Not looking to get rich off of it, it's just a combination of fun and a way to make a little fun money on the side.

Been slacking a little on the exercise lately. Need to get back into it. Hopefully going to bed extremely early last night will help, been staying up to late lately and it was starting to wear on me. The Daylight Savings Time change didn't help either.
