What I've Been Doing Lately

I just finished reading The Kite-Runner by Khaled Hosseini—an excellent book if you’re looking for a fast paced story that grips you from start to finish. I’m excited to read A Thousand Splendid Suns—Hosseini’s second novel.

I began Blink by Malcolm Gladwell a few days ago, and I can honestly say I’m a little disappointed thus far. He brings up some interesting arguments; however, the book jumps around a lot and doesn't follow through.

The infamous GMAT (Graduate Management Aptitude Test) study guides have been filling a hefty portion of my free time. I took a full practice test last Saturday and the book scoring had me around 580—I'm looking for a 650+. The data sufficiency and sentence correction questions have been giving me the most trouble.

Of course I’m always bouncing new ideas, thoughts, etc, off of other people waiting for a business idea to fully grab my attention. I’ve done some market research for a couple different ideas—and hey: Even if they don’t pan out, at least I’m keeping my entrepreneurial mind actively engaged.

Financial markets have certainly been a serious concern for many people; however, I haven’t changed a thing. I have continued investing for the long haul—buy, buy, buy—mainly in the form of the S&P 500 Index in my Roth IRA (expense ratio .19%).

Friends and family have been cycling through my condo near Phoenix, AZ. No surprise here—I wouldn’t want to be in Minnesota right now either! Things are crazy though with the Super Bowl in town this weekend—hopefully the Patriots and Giants will give us a great game. And of course, I always enjoy the new commercials…

Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this
is excellent blog. A fantastic read. I'll certainly be back.

Practice questions can help familiarize with the GMAT, but in the end, we need to be physically and mentally ready in order to answer the questions without any doubt.
