Currently, I'm in a predictable but yet uncertain future with my money situation. I'm working for the next semester and summer, but I'll be going back to do a 2-years graduate program in the fall. During this time, I'm expecting the course load to be very heavy and impact my ability to work a job during this time.
However, I have a small amount of extra cash from my job, but I'm not sure exactly what to do with it. Its $1-2k extra a month, and would it be advantageous to invest it in short term deals, or is it just not worth it when I know I'll probably need to spend it to get by while doing my thesis. I'm just wondering for any good short term investments that can help get me a little bit more though, but I'm not sure if the pay out on short term investments is worth it with this little cash.
I have no previous history of investing, and no debts besides student loans, which aren't accumulating interest yet because I'm technically still in school.
