You Do What You Can, Fall Break 2013

Fall break was a short but much needed holiday. The long weekend offered me the opportunity to temporarily shift attention and cater to other interests in my life – value-investing and community engagement. The former refers to a long-term investing method that I hope to personally master, while the latter refers to the many volunteering opportunities that I hope to seek and capitalize on while in Worcester. Given the brevity of the break, I shall make this post a relatively short one.

Unified Sports and Jeremiahs Inn

Saturday morning, the Clark Unified Sports club hosted a range of games at the President’s Inn Field, where Clarkies could interact and play with special needs children. Given my history of handling the notorious ones, I was put in a charge of a little rascal by the name of Nate. Throughout the day, we did a range of drills including penalty shootouts and dribbling. The finale included a 5 on 5 soccer scrimmage where I was positioned as the red team’s goalkeeper and brutally scored on by Nate himself.

Monday morning, the ASB team of Clark invited students to visit Jeremiah’s Inn (a residential recovery home for men rehabbing from drug usage) on Main Street and help with any maintenance needs the facility requires. I was delegated the duty of cleaning and polishing the doors, while others were in charge of window washing and carpet cleansing. As you can see below, I made sure the doors were spotless:

Value-Investing

Given my ambitions of mastering the techniques of value investing, I borrowed on Saturday what is recognized by Warren Buffett to be “the best book on investing ever written,” the Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham. Though I am barely done reading the book, I can already see the reasons for its worldwide acclaim. The book was published in 1949, but its lessons still apply to the world of investments today.
