Now, I realize, I am burnt out. Never thought of this would ever happen to me. Thanks to Tom for pointing out this to me :).. I have been non stop working in my current JOB in Australia since the second day I landed on this country last June. Moving into different teams, working with different managers. Brilliant ones, crappy ones, useless ones.(Yeah, anniversary is coming…), the best is the f*cking weekend work roaster..I gotta be ‘on-called’ on weekends. WTF. Who said working in Australia is relaxed? I will slap on your face. The amount of work is not ridiculous, but working in a messy project, poor management, and with some poorly skilled people is tough.
I often joke with my pals that we am working like a prostitute. we perform and finish the job professionally, nobody will even says ‘Thank you’, they pay us, and go away. But, if we are not in condition to ‘perform’, we are kicked on the stomach or slapped on the face. Yeah, we are a bunch of professional, high paid prostitute in IT industry.
I am working for money. I’d never denied it. This shitty job pays me reasonably, to my own standard, though.
I resumed my trading around4 months ago. So far, I am pretty happy with my performance. I would say, it is just because, I am really doing something I love to do. Whatever, but trading full time is still not a consideration now.
OK, the fact is, I am burnt out now. Sleep 5 hours on average everyday. Waking up before 6am everyday without assistance of alarm clock, even on weekends. I just can’t sleep well. I need to do something. I would not say trading is stressing me up. Not at all. My long term readers know I am not day trading. I am trading large time frame, with minimal monitoring required. The work? might be, but not totally. I guess, I am pushing myself a little over to achieve my own financial goals. Am I ? No idea.
I am planning to take a break soon, and I need to. By the way, Trader Gav is still kicking ass in currency trading. 😆
Believe it or not. I actually feel better after writing this post.
