The Courtship Was Over

Seven months have passed I can still vividly recall how elated and terrified I was when I attended Citiseconline’s seminar, Investing in the Stock Market Today. I was already in Tektite more than an hour before the schedule. Hesitant to be the first participant to sign on the attendance sheet, I waited in the ground floor for more than thirty minutes. When I entered the training room, it was almost half full. I proceeded at the right side of the room and sat in the third row. While waiting for the speaker, my head was turning left and right, back and forth. Observing people.  That’s when I realized how naive I was. The thought of sitting beside a man in black suit was actually the root of my uneasiness. Thank God the majority was just in blue jeans. The discomfort subsided and I felt everything was just right. Finally! Another dream came true.

Yes, to attend a seminar about investing in the stock market was a simple dream I used to share with a friend. We were both dreaming of investing in the stock market long time ago but were totally clueless. Unfortunately, I came alone since her medical condition did not allow her. After the three-hour seminar, there was only one thing running in my head: I WANT THIS! Upon arriving home, though apprehensive of my mom’s probable reaction, I told her my plans. For the first time after several objections in the past, we had a peaceful conversation about this matter. And on the same night I got her YES. That was the climax of my day.

After a week, I attended another free seminar still in Citiseconline. At 6:30 pm I submitted my requirements together with my initial investment. It was so small but damn it was worth a million for me. And that marked the beginning of a seemingly endless journey in the world of the men in black suit and men in blue jeans.
