The Story of the Golden Monkey

Discussion in 'Journals' started by stockinvestor, Sep 12, 2008.

  1. This is the story of myself. I'm just a wage monkey (hence the name) searching for a job in the financial industry. I hope to write some of my thoughts down, and if it could be of any help to somebody that comes after me then all the better.
  2. I wrote a 32 line poem on December 23, 1998. Here are just four lines from it. These are very applicable to me today, just as it was 10 years ago:

    When bitterness of pain no longer moves me.
    When only agony uncover this triumphed.
    When, even the simple desires of my blood,
    Weeps for vengeance upon my ignorance.
  3. Ooh, sounds like Gothic poetry.

    Let's see. Bitterness? Check. Agony? Check. Weeping? Check. Blood? Check!
  4. I wish my grass was emo..

    so it would cut itself.
  5. Hi elite team,

    Cut your expenses down to next to nothing (cut cable/cell phone/move back home/don't eat out).

    Get a job as a server, or at mcdonalds or at a hotel as a bellboy.

    Work hard and build up some humility. Save that hard earned money, and open a trading account.

    Trade without ever forgetting the struggle it took to get to that moment.

    Rinse and repeat AS many times as it's necessary. Enjoy!
  8. I have a finance degree and I worked as a financial analyst for almost 3 years.
  9. I think you try to change industries.

    Just find something to put food the table and pay rent for now ... and build from there.
