Time Off

So I have to be honest.  I took some time off from trading in the last 2 weeks.  A week and a half a go Mrs. IM and I celebrated our anniversary and took a quick trip to New York.  It was as relaxing as New York can be, but the escape was much needed.  Then I got back to some other obligations that … Read more about Time Off

Emotional Control

As expected, quarter 1 has been a ride.  I don't know if I can say it had been a fun one or not.  Especially, since it's been both, sometimes within minutes.  I guess that's the beauty of this journey, if this kind of craziness is your thing.  Probably the biggest lesson reinforced in Quarter 1 has … Read more about Quarter 1 Recap

Bye Week

Think of when your favorite football team loses a few games leading up to the bye week.  I know some people think that at least they can't lose while they adjust.  Weird but true, right?  You also can't win either, but that's another discussion.  Either way that is how this week has went so far.  It … Read more about Bye Week
