study break

My brain is swollen with the minutiae of bonds and other debt instruments, so I'm taking a study break.

I made a batch of popcorn the old-fashioned way, in a pot on the stove with oil-fortified butter and sea salt and pinpoint grease burns on my neck. It's sitting in a bowl next to me now, and I'm getting my keyboard greasy as I type.

Plus I have things like Investment Strategies and Modern Portfolio Theory left to go, which I should breeze through.

I am glad I got fired though, because otherwise I'd be totally fucked.
