I forgot what losing money in the market feels like. I just did my Q3 net worth. I had started it in mid-September. What a difference those few short weeks have made! I feel like I'm down between $15-$20K since then. Not feel like, I know. At least that much. I probably saved about $16K last quarter, at least. And it all got eaten up by the market drop. The good news is I feel less nervous about buying stocks now than I have in a long time. It will be interesting to see if October maintains its reputation for being a shitty month for the stock market. Oh well, long view and all that I know. It's just that every drop puts me that much further from retiring which is a big goal of mine that can't come soon enough.
