Lets get going. I put in a few hours this morning so I’m going to actually relax and hang out with my little daughter tonight. But tomorrow it is fixed income all day until it is mastered, then practice exams on Sunday. People, this could be the third to last weekend that we have to spend studying for the CFA! What you got? “Fatigue makes cowards of us all.” -Vince Lombardi-
With you on that. Put in a few this morning as well and just woke up from a lengthy nap. Gonna spend some quality time with my uncle JD tonight, and then get at it all day tomorrow and Sunday.
Count me in. Past CFAI exams and Currency sessions for me this weekend
Past CFAI exams alllll weekend long. Derivatives too. Have to go to a networking dinner tonight and you know it’s bad when you’d rather be studying.
IN. studying now for another hour and then it’s a few cocktails, dinner, relax. spin class 8:45am and then i get after it HARD tomorrow- CFAI past exams as well for this kid. All weekend long. I might sprinkle in some GIPS. oof.
Yep. I’m in. Risk management after work tonight and ALL day tomorrow. Sunday I’m thinking I’ll tackle my first practice test (or at least AM sess) and do some performance attribution ish. “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right” - Henry Ford
I’m in too. Going to study a few hours tonight and all day tomorrow and Sunday.
I’m commiting to 8 hours today and 8 hours Sunday with Sat off. June 6th can’t come fast enough…or slow enough.
Just finished a home brew… now in for a long weekend of IPS, IPS, IPS, IPS, IPS
haha. boston, when I read your “IPS, IPS,…” for some reason the Lil John “shots, shots, shots, shot, shot shots… erybody” song popped into my head. The IPS remix would be the worst song ever.
I’ll start from tomorrow. Planning to do Schweser exam…
i will take it being the worst song ever if it means i finally get one of these right on exam day and never have to think about it ever again… of course the bruins game has to be tied and cutting into my study time
yeah, I’m hating the bruins right now… but it comes down to one if-else scenario… Haunted by that old winwood (sp) song “when I’m feeling low and I just thank God for the Tiime…” ('cause I’m wasted and I - can’t find my way home). So here it is, if I find the ability to ignore some of the toughest mental conflicts I’ve ever had to deal with (your situations may be different, but you have to block that out) I will pass… ELSE FAIL! Suck it up. Some of the details are unnecesary. I kept something on my wall for years, but never thought so much about it as in the last few weeks (forgive typos, it’s been a very long night): If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs, And blaming it on you, If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, but make allowance for their doubting too, IF you can wait and not be tired by the wiationg, or beign lied about, not not deal in lies, or being hated, not give in to hating; And don’t look too good - nor talk too wise… If you can dream, but not make dreams you rmaster, If you can think, but not make thoughts your aim, If you can meet with triumph or disaster, and treat those two imposters just the same, If you can bear to hear the words you’ve spoke twisted by knaves to make a trap for foosl, Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken and stoop and build them w/ worn out tools, If you can make one heap of all your winnings, and risk it all on one turn of pitch and toss, and lose, and starta gain from your beginnings; and never breathe a word about your loss; IF YOU CAN FORCE YOUR HEART AND NERVE AND SINEW TO SERVE YOUR TURN LONG AFTER IT IS DONE, AND SO HOLD ON WHEN THERE IS NOTHING LEFT IN YOU EXCEPT THE WILL WHICH SAYS “HOLD ON!!!” If you can talk to crowds and not lose you virtue, -Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch, If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you; If all men count with you, but none too much; If you can fill the unforgiving minute, with sixty seconds distance run… Yours it the earth and everyting in it and, which is more - YOU’LL BE A MAN, MY SON! Just a little inspiration for those who think as I do. Been a tough couple of weeks here, but I won’t get into that. Good luck to all and to all, a good luck!
Skill - still sleeping off the JD? Ha! Boston - what kind of home brew did you make? Me? In the last 3 days I’ve read FI reading 28 2.5 times in the CFAI and once in Schweser (and I’ve read them each once before too!) If I haven’t mastered this immunization stuff yet… I suppose I never will. Time to hammer some questions, and then on to the next few FI chapters.
Corp Finance all day today, Equity review tomorrow… Saving the mocks for the last two weeks, want to peak at exactly the right time…

I was actually aiming to be up and studying by 8:00am…should achieve that goal by noon. Four hours late, like a boss.
