To complete this goal: Find a site where I don't have to use real money, but can get an idea of how investing works and play around with the stock market. Use it consistently for 3 months.
Why? At some point I would like to build an investment portfolio, and I want it to include at least some stocks. I don't know anything about stocks or investing, and my cautious nature won't allow me to just tossing around money (ha, this makes it sound like I have money!). It's not like I'm skipping the book and more serious educational options totally, but I think this would be fun and I like that it will hopefully mimic an actual stock buying experience.
