Addictions can be good!



I love reading but I look for free articles and short stories online.  We are in a time where you can find almost anything for free on the internet. The first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is look at my investments and read articles about current events to find out how it will affect my investments. Sometimes I can’t read some of the articles because I have to subscribe to different news and social media companies. Now that I am invested in stocks and have an addiction to understanding more about the industry It’s hard to not sign up. I just signed up the wall street journal. My business professors kept advising me that I needed to know more the world and sign up because I would be left in the dark if I didn’t. Now my lights are on and I read about 1-2 hours about different industries and current events around the world. I have a problem but I think it’s a great problem to have. I am very interested in automobiles and technology and how that will affect our future. Reading and digging more into the areas I am interested in has helped me make better investment decisions. Other than my personal use for the journals I read other articles in different areas because knowledge is power and I want to be able to understand different cultures and areas of business because it can affect us all around the world. It helps me look at a bigger picture and understand more about what’s happing around us because you never know how it can help you or others out. I am hooked on reading but I am getting my money’s worth (bang for my buck).  So if you have an addiction I hope it’s helping you better yourself.


About ernieg

Aloha! My name is Ernie Gomez, I am a junior in the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland, College Park (UMD) attending The Universities at Shady Grove (USG) campus. I was born and in Los Angeles CA, and moved to Hawaii when I was 2O years old. I moved to Maryland in order to attend the prestigious Robert H. Smith School of Business at UMD. After graduating high school, I joined the Marine Corp but after eight years of service, I enrolled in college. My decision enabled me to obtain my Associates Degree in Business and Mathematics, at Palomar College in San Diego, California. After my move from California to Maryland, I looked for a top ranked business school that could help me further my education. The Robert H. Smith school easily became my top choice. When I was applying for college at Maryland, I learned of USG and the great resources available to students. After acquiring more information about USG, I just couldn’t resist. If you don’t know me! My hobby? Working on cars. Who inspires me? Anyone and everyone inspires me, because I know I can learn from every person I meet. However, I admire Eric Thomas who famously quoted, “When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful.” Words that describe me: Humble, Compassionate, Powerful, Honorable My goal: My goal is to move back to California, next to the beach and buy a home also in HAWAII. I am a humble, compassionate and honorable individual who strives to accomplish my life goals. If you see me around school, feel free to say “Hi” and start a conversation. USG is my #1 pick and I am happy to be a part of the USG community. I hope you enjoy my blogs and if you have any suggestions please feel free to reply to my post.
