I know- GLITTER!!!! There can never be enough! storyofthedoor and I ordered them from a printing shopping service called JiMi Agency. They’ve been pretty great to work with so far! I’ve now ordered more glitter bookmarks and cell phone charm wipers from them! I hope they continue to offer more items in the future, as the amount of printing capabilities they have access to in Korea seem far greater than here in the US.
(Also storyofthedoor says hi! <3).
And I feel the need to blog about it because it’s magical. *_* I’ve been working on my taxes today. My mother has nagged me about beginning an IRA for ages. Last year I actually did it, I began a mutual fund investment thing that is part of an IRA. (minimum investment requirement is 3000, I did it through Vanguard, money has to stay in there for retirement until you’re 70 or something like that)
My mind was just blown because contributing to the IRA DID ACTUALLY help my current right now taxes that are awful. ;__; It deducted 700$. IT IS AMAZING. (I picked a Roth IRA, so the investment amount is taxable, but then there is a saving for retirement deduction for lower income people!)
I’M KIND OF AMAZED.
I mean, the entire 3000 could be lost into the stock market void.
BUT I SAVED 700 RIGHT NOW SO THAT’S PRETTY GREAT.
I guess I feel like my mutual fund investment is as likely to pay off in the end as my money being invested into social security through the huge awful self employment tax loooool. %D (Meaning I think neither of them will exist by the time I’m an old lady. The stock market will go eat itself or whatever and social security won’t exist.) So I might as well just take my tax credit right now and be happy! WOOOO!
AAAA thank you!!! X3 I’m so happy I went to Anime Matsuri! It was my first ever Houston show. I definitely want to go back sometime! I’m really hoping going forward I might go to San Japan next year, and then Anime Matsuri the following year, and then alternate years into infinity (I plan on being immortal.)
