Life, Love, and The Pursuit of Dividends

As Promised I will be slowly but surely making my return to blogging about my DGI journey! Things have been more than exciting for me as of late. This summer I completed my internship at Union Pacific Railroad. It was an absolute blast to have the opportunity to work at such a great company. It was very interesting being a shareholder for nearly 1 year before working at UP. Being a share hold was actually something I brought up in my interview!

More recently, I started the fall semester of my senior year at Arizona State University! I look forward to graduating with my degree in Supply Chain Management and going to work for a great company very soon. So far I have applied at Honeywell, Lockheed Martin, 3M, General Dynamics, Exxon, Dell, Rolls Royce, Intel, Raytheon and a few others. I am blessed to have the opportunity to work at these companies and come out of school with a degree in a top ranked program. 

As far as investing goes, things have never been better. my portfolio has increased significantly since the last time I wrote here. I don't necessarily have a steady stream of income as a student. Saving money from my internship and consistently moving money from my savings (not my emergency fund) has allowed me to deploy capital in meaningful ways. Ive begun to go through and update my excel sheets and other tools I used to track my portfolio and am excited to show you those in the coming days!

As for now I hope you are sticking with your journey and achieving your goals!

What do you do when you find it hard to keep writing?
Do you have a plan for a sudden reduction in income?
Where are you at with your current goals?

I am a 22 year old kid who seeks to create a life of financial independence via passive income. The accumulation and growth of quality dividend yielding stocks will be the main source of income and this is my journey.
