This class should prove a lot more useful than my lap dancing class (aka skills I’ve acquired that have been totally wasted in real life).
I actually have a BS in Biology.
I can tell you the difference between a eukaryote and a prokaryote but for the life of me I couldn’t ell you what microeconomics, macroeconomics, or game theory are.
I’m basically a remedial student when it comes to finance.
I just don’t have the head for it. People start talking finance and my brain shuts off. All I hear is the mom from Charlie Brown cartoons going “Waa waa waa.”
I need help.
Oh sure, I’ve got a budget that I live by (unless there’s a sale on Jimmy Choos).
And I’ve got a retirement plan
But I have no idea how investments work.
Hence, this class.
It’ll give me the critical knowledge I’m lacking.
And maybe I’ll make new friends in class.
You just never know . . .
