Dropped courses, Stocks

So I got back my 373 midterm with a 20%…so not surprisingly I had to drop it. Now I only have 3 courses so far, which gives me alot of free time. I also switched 301 groups since my old group kicked me out. It’s not as bad as one might think since we are doing code swapping for the next assignment (which got pushed back). So school seems to be chugging along, I’m not happy about dropping courses but at least I’ll know that all my marks should (hopefully) be over 3.0 this semester.

I have an eye exam on friday which will give me a new prescription and I can finally get new glasses. An economics test is coming up which I have yet to study for. Overall my 3 courses give me alot of freedom. I should use some of this time to finish my portfolio and the rest of this website once I get off my lazy ass to do it.

My portfolio has been losing value but today the DJIA went up 300 points thanks to Citi. I sold off my CHL, BBY and RIMM, not because I didn’t think they would go up but because I don’t want to much borrowed interest. I’ve got about $800+ USD worth of borrowed money right now and I have to pay that off soon. On the other hand, AUY dropped quite a bit and I went in for 200 shares. Gold always comes down when stocks go up and the reverse. Also, FDX and PG are losing me tons of money, I guess I will go long on those, since they are big companies I have faith. Speaking of big companies, GE went up 20% and I have faith it will continue to go up so …. (goes in for 50).
