I’m completely addicted to stocks now. I check the markets throughout the day..bought a share of Google today since that’s all I could afford. Let’s hope the price keeps going up. But not before I purchase more. I feel better investing in stocks than in a new handbag now. I guess once I get better at this I’ll reward myself with a new handbag. 

Or I can invest a bit in LVMH instead.

Random Thoughts - Feb 18 2014

I’m going to start updating this blog again. I feel like I always do this in spurts..but now I’ll start writing private thoughts on here again as I feel it’s more private once again (since the link is taken off my main blog). Not sure if anyone bookmarked the page lol. 

Right now I’m listening to Green Day’s “Time Of Your Life” . You know how when you listen to some songs..it brings you back to one moment in the past that you’ll think of whenever you hear the song? Well when I hear this song, I now think of that time in London last year when I was in the tube station going up the escalators. There was a small band at the bottom playing this song. I usually walk while on escalators, but that time I decided to just stand there and listen to the song playing. Random people going up and down the escalators started singing it too. Now when I listen to it I’m brought back to that moment and start to miss London…

So I finally started on stock trading. I’ve been meaning to do it for a long time already, but never got around to it. I’m glad I did because it really helps me save (plus it’s a lot of fun). When I think of buying something now or going out for a meal, I think of how I’d rather use that money to buy x or y stock. & any extra money I have, I put it right into my bank account so I can buy more stocks. I’m pretty familiar now with which stocks are in which price ranges..which stock I can buy in exchange for a dinner out..etc. $45 used to mean a nice dinner but now it is the price of 1 share of Sotheby’s stock (my first investment). Let’s see in a few months if that is still the cost of it.

In London at the moment. Everything is going well. Will give a proper update next time! Sorry for neglecting this blog (if any of you read it).. Follow my Instagram and main blog for more updates.

"Lebenslanger Schicksalsschatz" is not something that develops over time. It is something that happens instantaneously. It courses through you like the water of a river after a storm, filling you and emptying you all at once. You feel it throughout your body, in your hands, in your heart, in your stomach, in your skin… have you ever felt this way about someone? If you have to think about it, you have not felt it.

"In exactly 45 days from now you and I are going to meet and we’re going to fall in love and we’re going to get married and we’re going to have 2 kids and we’re going to love them and each other so much. All that is 45 days away, but I’m here now I guess because… I want those extra 45 days with you. I want each one of them. Look and if I can’t have them I’ll take the 45 seconds before your boyfriend shows up and punches me in the face, because… I love you. I’m always gonna love you, til the end of my days and beyond. You’ll see."

Had a dream about Chi-Town last night. 

Chi-Town = Patrick J Adams doppelganger, who I knew 2 years ago & kind of miss whenever I watch Suits. 

how many times must you mention you are a ________ ??

Took this photo several years ago for a school project. 
I really want the past x months of my life back. As many as I can get back the better. Well in the past year. Time is going by way too fast these days, and I’m wasting too much of it. 
Or I should say, I wish I wasn’t so indecisive because the more I change my mind about things and go back and forth, the more time I waste..in the end it always turns out the same. From now on I should just force myself to stick to gut instincts as it’s usually “the right thing” in the end.

"How much does your life weigh? Imagine for a second that you’re carrying a backpack. I want you to pack it with all the stuff that you have in your life… you start with the little things. The shelves, the drawers, the knick knacks, then you start adding larger stuff. Clothes, tabletop appliances, lamps, your TV… the backpack should be getting pretty heavy now. You go bigger. Your couch, your car, your home… I want you to stuff it all into that backpack. Now I want you to fill it with people. Start with casual acquaintances, friends of friends, folks around the office… and then you move into the people you trust with your most intimate secrets. Your brothers, your sisters, your children, your parents and finally your husband, your wife, your boyfriend, your girlfriend. You get them into that backpack, feel the weight of that bag. Make no mistake your relationships are the heaviest components in your life. All those negotiations and arguments and secrets, the compromises. The slower we move the faster we die. Make no mistake, moving is living. Some animals were meant to carry each other to live symbiotically over a lifetime. Star crossed lovers, monogamous swans. We are not swans. We are sharks."

Pricks are spontaneous, they’re unpredictable and fun. And then we’re surprised when they turn out to be a prick.
