I feel trapped. I really need to learn not to let my emotions be governed by the daily gyrations of the stock market. Yet it's hard not to, all my dreams rest on my ability to make money from it in excess of the average, and on bad days I start having flickering visions of a long grey lifetime. I really need to get that code Brandon wrote for me installed on a 24/7 connected unix box so that i can have a data store to run quant simulations on.

The latter method gears in with my manic depressive tendencies all to effectively, and makes me miserable and ineffective.

I feel so good after yoga it's not even funny, and it seems like I'm gaining an inch or two per stretch every week.

I always feel better after writing, so why don't I write more?
