It’s after midnight (eastern time) which means that there are still 10 full study days left!
How is everyone doing mentally? Even though I still have trouble valuing swaptions, understanding what the f$%k an ARCH model is, going up, down, and around the bid\ask spread in order to make a riskless triangular profit, memorizing the Alt. Inv. formulas that I come across like once every 14th hour of studying, not writing run-on sentences, figuring out the difference between current and temporal method on one accounting formula in less than 15 minutes, correctly solving residual income problems, not mixing up the FRA notation with the fixed income forward rate notation, and the fact that I come across at least one formula a day that I swear to God I’ve never seen before, I’m feeling great! 10 hours can equal 100-120 hours of additional study time!!!
Just venting after a long 12 hours of studying. I’d share these feelings with my friends but I’m not sure they know I exist at this point and I know they wouldn’t get it. But seriously, stay strong everyone and keep studying.
I think I have a girlfriend somewhere…
