...IRA for last year and this year. And put all of it in VTSMX. Will transfer to VTSAX when I get it to $10,000.

I feel like I lost my virginity.

Well. Like many people when they lose their virginity, you may have some regrets: Unless you're near retirement, the max contribution for a Roth in 2015 is $5,500...

If you call up Vanguard, I'm sure you can get it cleared up without much issue. Good work getting started though!

It will be an exciting feeling when you hit the $10K :-).

Unlike when I lost my virginity, I hope there's some multiplication happening w/ your contributions!
