He and I just had a long talk, and we broke up. I’m devastated. We’re both good people, but things have gotten bad between us. It breaks my heart to think that it’s done, that I won’t be with him anymore….but I can’t stomach any more of this volatility, it upsets me too much. So, we broke up….because we didn’t know what else to do, and I am very sad right now.



Never Again.

PS. Is anyone wondering why the monkey has no body? Photoshop.

PPS. Is anyone else wondering HOW the authorities found out about the monkey?

One final down, a few to go…stressful.



Chicago Union Sit-In

Very  quickly (I have to study for finals), I want to comment about this weekend’s union sit-in in a Chicago window manufacturer.

I commend the workers for pursuing a peaceful demonstration. They have made their point. I commend our leaders, most notably President Elect Obama, for paying attention…they have brought attention to an important.

Now, if only someone could ask the right questions—-WHY exactly did Bank of America cancel its line of credit from this manufacturer?

By canceling credit lines, BofA effectively accelerates the unemployment rate and the rate at which all of thoes families will default on their own credit obligations. The decision to cancel a business’ line of credit has a huge ripple effect that (I dare say) creates more credit risk for the finacial institutions that cancelled the line in the first place. It is a TERRIBLE decision in an AWFUL time….bad timing + bad moves = bad, bad events. 

Read my article about the credit card industrires pulling out $2 trillion next year.  If they do that then there losses will sky-rocket. The company won’t just stay in recession, it will tank into a prolonged depression.

Why don’t these banks see that ?  Why doesn’t anyone ask this question?

I would argue that the union has a point:

Bank of America says the company has walked away and ignored its obligation to the workers. But union leaders argue that since the bank received $25 billion in taxpayer funds as part of the U.S. Treasury’s efforts to stabilize the financial markets, it should step in where the company has failed.



Stressed

I’m studying for finals, in order of difficulty: Finance, Accounting, Statistics, Strategy.

I’m starting to get stressed. That doesn’t feel very good, so I’m trying the following tactics to reduce the stress:
– Breathe Deep
– Grades don’t matter anymore
– It’s unlikely I’ll get anything lower than a B in any course



Freezing Cold?

You can tell the economy is taking a hit on me because I have actually delayed purchasing a real winter jacket because I am too broke to pay $300 for the Northface jacket I want just now…. Instead, I’ve been walking around in my insanely puffy ski jacket, which is warm but hideous.

Well…I broke down yesterday afternoon and bought it. Plus Tax. $330 for a jacket. A very warm and wind proof jacket, but that’s alot of money during these bad times.

My parents were surprised by the cost and demanded to see a picture of the jacket, which is when I found an online store that’s having a 25% off sale on ALL of its Northface products.

Dude (I speak in Dude when I’m excited)—I bought the Parka for $240 instead of $330. A $90 savings!!! THAT is what you’re supposed to do during a recession, find good deals!!!!
