    My high school football coach was also my english and history teacher.
    I was a lineman and the assistant coach that was in charge of the linemen was also my science and math teacher.
    And my auto shop teacher was mobbed up with the football coaches.
    Think about how injuries can be covered up when the athletes teachers (the only other adults who would interact with kids from broken homes) are also his coaches or part of the football booster club?
    I didnt make it past tenth grade from all the injuries and pills i was on for the pain.

    Wow. Now I see it. What a mess he's become.

    Of course, he was a mess before, but he wasn't in prison being someone else's bitch like now. THAT'S a mess.

    I was looking at my portfolio with a small amount of regret for not repeatedly hammering down on AMD, for not trusting myself enough. AMD was on my mind for a fair chunk of the day yesterday and I remembered you may had a little regret of not selling a small % of the of your position when it was in the high $90s and was partially hesitant to buy back in when it was in the 70s. Happy to read you did not sell.

    literally bought 90 shares at $900 and its worth 13,500 so i'm letting that ride
    one of my best trades but again under my $1000 risk threshold
    hertz has worked out well so far too
    buddies always ask if i didn't wish i had invested more and i tell them it never works like that for me
    how's the biz going?

    My current work outlook has improved in key areas, the most important ones (even happiness with job responsibilities lol). I don't necessarily love the work I do but at this point and in my current position, I do not hate it. Plus, to be quite frank, I currently find myself in a position where I don't really have a boss and nobody follows up on anything I do. I have worked my ass off since beginning in the nutraceutical industry almost a few years ago and I have gained the absolute trust and respect of my direct boss who happens to be one of the more important people within the company. Got taken off the front lines to of sorts and tasked with more analytical type work. The position I currently occupy was something they created specifically for me because I expressed a certain level of frustration (no threats, only straightforward discussion of differing POV's). They really don't know what to do with me or how to "train" me but my boss knows all she has to do is say what she needs and I'll figure it out so I am generally left alone to myself which is fairly fucking awesome lol. I figure I will stick with this industry because I know there is an ass-load of money to be made here, I just need to grind through the bullshit, work hard, and gain that sweat equity that will propel my floor significantly higher than it is now.

    My long-term agenda is going rather well, I know I expressed frustration about not dropping the hammer repeatedly on AMD but overall, I have literally zero to complain about. The only criticism I have is my lack of ability to generate meaningful money to dump into this pot. This is a work in progress, of course.

    My short-term investing has been off the rails for a decent amount of time in terms of actively practicing which is a bummer because it means delays when I can go live. The criteria for myself to go live never changes. I know it is excuses but I've had a medical issue I've been deal with for about 2 years, with June through August being miserable. The physical pain was fairly significant but the affect it had on my mentality is what the condition affected the most. I was on a fucking roll but the agony of the situation kinda broke me and I stopped waking up at 4:30 to prepare to trade. Ended up needing surgery early last month and I'm feeling pain-free now. Some minor pain but I'm still recovering so it's expected but absolutely nothing like it was. I know I need to kick this motherfucker into gear again but I just haven't done so yet. I will, before this year is over.

    To be honest, it's purely selfish reasoning at the core of what I want. In my ideal scenario my family and I are not obligated to do anything, we move how we choose, when we want and how we want. In all aspects of life, being able to spend as much time as we want together and support each others ideas with our own unique specialty that we've honed in after years of just doing shit we wanted and figure our what work we loved. The odds of being able to achieve all of that for the last of the older generation is unlikely (imma do everything I can to make it happen), but I'd like to be able to show significant progress before the opportunities run out. For my siblings in my age range, they all struggle, odds are they will continue to struggle for their whole adulthood until something drastic happens. They were raised with zero fiscal responsibility and they all have made choices that make the odds of them staying check to check and always stressed, much higher. For them, I need to make the reality I want for previous generations and the current generation a reality for their children and beyond. I really don't care if it takes me until the day I die to achieve that goal I will never quit (it won't take until I die but if it did, oh well lol). Every adult in my family (small family) has always sacrificed heavily for each other in their own ways, especially the older generations for the younger generations. At the core of what I want is to be to able to look everyone in the eyes and tell them we don't have to struggle anymore and that their kids but especially their grandkids will never understand what working for anybody else is and only work for us. Selfishly, I want my family to run up the score on everybody and I'm tryna be the Tom Brady of the ship. I don't know how much respect that should garner but I do appreciate it.

    speaking from experience people typically are not grateful or respectful and usually flat out envious, especially family
    they can end up being thieves and backstabbers even when you would think they should feel good about how you changed their life and gave them opportunities
    admire your vision and fortitude cause that's what it takes
    work for yourself first and foremost and do what you can to influence and excite those around you
    i've tried to change many a good friends direction w positive goals and hope but it always comes down to the individual
    so many times i've heard "if only i had a car, or this or that" and you find a way to help them and still they fail
    literally bought a lifelong friend a jeep to work as a handyman and six months later it was impounded because he didn't fucking register it!
    the same guy that cried and told me i had changed his life just shrugged and said "sorry i'm a fuck up Mike"...and just looked at me deadpan
    even just in basic physical exercise i used to love having a good partner to work out w but those are nearly impossible to find
    got to the point that i wasn't interested since every time they couldn't make it i'd take a day off that became two, then a week
    if i'm off topic nevermind and carry on lad
