Remembrance Day

(Originally posted on November 11th 2012) November and December are probably my favourite months of the year. It is fitting that this season for me starts with rememberance day.

(Originally posted on October 23rd 2012) Sometimes it is nice to look back to what happened in the past. Almost two and a half years to the date; I wrote a post with the same title on having a nice dream and hoping it would come true. I have since forgot what that dream was […]

Under Pressure

(Originally posted on February 22nd 2010) Today the person who started the first hedge fund at Nomura Capital died aged 46. Recently the newspapers were filled with an equity trader at Deustche bank who committed suicide. He was aged 24.

Take a chance on me

(Originally posted on February 19th 2010) Take a chance on me seems to be running in my head since the time I left the office today. I have no idea why. Am I going to meet someone that is taken by someone else but my love for her will be so great that I will […]
