I don’t know what I started with, but somehow in the great dot-com heydey of mid-2000, my stock portfolio was up to $36,000. Wow…the number boggles the mind when compared to where it is now (I hadn’t even looked at it for the last several months): $6,000. That’s 1/6 the 2000 value, for those of you who like numbers.
So much for this whole “college” thing. And Brandeis is raising their tuition again. For shame.
