Well I've been swamped with school and work but I wanted to send out a quick update and a request for help.
First of all school is going fine, I made it through my first round of midterms with only minor cuts and brusies. I'm actively looking for an internship in either Chicago or London for the summer and hopefully beyond. Unfortunately the current financial market mess has led to my concern over how may opportunities are going to be ultimately available.
As many of you may or may not know, I have faced a great internal struggle of who to vote for this election. I feel so deeply obligated to be true to my personal beliefs that neither major canidate fully represented. I for a long time have considered third party canidates yet others are saying "It's throwing your vote away" or "What if who you would have voted for a"major canidate" if only given the option but you didn't and they ended up losing?
Well I voted yesterday, and I feel good about my choice. I won't be disclosing who I voted for until after the election because it was such a personal proccess that I think brought me there.
So I hope others take the time to look at how they really feel america should be, and take the time to vote. In the end one vote may not matter much, but it mattered to me.
Here is my Request for anybody interested in helping me complete a personal project:
Could you please either comment here or send me an e-mail with your thoughts on "What does a child need to know about money?" the age is between 6-8 years old. It can relate to any aspect, budgeting, savings, interest, counting etc... I just need to get ideas of what the general public believes is most important.
My personal project is to publish a children's story book that I also Illistrate. I intend to use the project as fuel to get an internship/job for the summer/fall. Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts.
