This weekend, I arrived home from my California Vacation. It wasn’t exactly a Griswold farce, but the week had its share of zany moments. Now I’m back to reality — New Jersey — and things aren’t looking good:
* The stock market hasn’t exactly been working in investors’ favor this year.
* Mathew Emmert from The Motley Fool thinks we should expect 0% returns in the market for a while. Dividend stocks the way to go?
* The interview I had at the beginning of the month did not result in a new job offer for me, therefore I cannot make the quick jump from my current position I was hoping for.
* My cat left me a regurgitative present on my carpet.
* The Mets lost to The Nationals.
Onward and upward, as they say.
