What to do...

Revenant

A bit of a windfall

I found out recently that, starting next month and continuing for 9 months, I'll be getting a regent's fellowship in addition to my graduate assistantship. After taxes, it's like saying I'm going to have about $600 added onto a $1400 income.

I can live on the $1400, and that basically makes the $600 gravy. I can do whatever I want with it basically. While I will save some of it to rebuild my cash reserves, I'm not going to save all of it as cash in the bank because that just doesn't seem like a great idea given everything. The question for me then becomes, what do I do with it?

I have two leading theories at the moment.

1) I have several signed, limited edition prints I'd love to frame so I can display them better

2) I'd love to start buying coins again, and start buying 20 coin silver tubes.

I'm not sure which is better, and I'll probably do a mixture of both given the chance.
