It’s going on nine months since my last update… I’m horrible about keeping my blog up to date. Since I haven’t come up with a New Year’s Resolution, I’m going to go ahead and make this blog it. Keeping it up to date and gaining readers. ”But… we’re already five months into the year…” you might say. Shut up, I’ll do what I want, is my response.
So, what have I been up to for the past nine months? I got a twitter account, and you should probably follow me! I’ve also been working, quite a bit. Back in October we got a new project and it’s been quite an experience to get it finished, however it should be done in the next couple of weeks. I had a chance to use some new things in this project, the different things we used are:
I’ve had a few people ask me about one of my earlier blog posts about some heart problems I was having. I’d like to go ahead and update everyone. I haven’t had a heart palpitation in over a year, things are going really well since I started staying away from caffeine.
I’ve signed up for a paperMoney account at thinkorswim and I’ve been playing around in the stock markets. It’s only a simulation, but it’s pretty fun to keep up with. So far I’ve managed to turn $100,000 into $116,500, too bad that’s not real money. I’ve been thinking about putting some real money down on the line, but I don’t want to start until I have a somewhat decent amount to start with. I’ve met Anthony Davian, a hedge fund manager in Akron, Ohio, through twitter. Anthony and Keith Barna host a happy hour show every week where they sample beers and talk about the markets. It’s very interesting to attend and learn new things. There’s also a newsletter that you can subscribe to for a monthly fee which will provide you with different trades that you can look at and see what they’re currently buying/selling. If I were to actually go into the markets, I’d probably subscribe to that so that it’s not just me out there calling the shots, there’s someone else doing all the research and I just get to piggyback for profits!
