Are you really who you think?Watching the recent Game of Thrones episodes has made me think a bit. Potential spoilers ahead if you haven't seen last week's episode. How much of your life is not a result of your effort, but that of others? Let's take a look at three people you may be familiar with: - King Joffrey... 1 year 2 months
What is programming useful for?Hey folks, I recently enjoyed a 2-week excursion to Silicon Valley and - obviously - was surrounded by a bunch of tech nerds the entire time. Great people with a very different perspective on life. They implored me to learn some kind of programming language. This got me to wondering: what is... 1 year 5 months
Do we live "by default"?Saw this on Analyst Forum and thought it was worth a read: [quote]A few weeks ago I asked everyone reading to share their biggest problem in life in the comment section.

Can someone help me with social mediaHey WSO, As I sit here studying for the CFA, my head meandered from the absolutely riveting topic of bond valuation and on to thinking about how bad I am at keeping in touch with people. When I say "bad," I mean really bad. On more than one occasion, people have gotten in touch with me just... 1 year 7 months
How do you deal with failure?Hey chimps and chimpettes, About a year ago I decided to stop sucking at life. Those are the exact words I used (and still use) to describe how I look at things; less compromise and laziness, more effort, thoughtfulness, honesty, and personal responsibility being the ideas that I try to carry... 1 year 10 months
Breaking Bad (Potential Spoilers)Anybody watch breaking bad? I finished season 4 and am just totally shocked at how that went... I mean wow. How has season 5 been? Also, I'm going to state my (obvious) theories about how I think it'll end: - Walt dies (obviously) - Some people think Walt will kill Skyler?? - Walt kills... 1 year 10 months

BB Final Round AdviceHey WSO, After a whole slew of interviews with a BB (think MS/UBS), I managed to secure a final round with their IB team. I've been to a lot of interviews at BBs and worked briefly for a boutique, but have never done a super day at any BB. Any advice I should heed before going in for this? I'... 1 year 11 months

Almost got jumped near Union Square, where do I...This x1000. If someone really had the nerve to screw with you like that, they really must have thought you were a pussy. Can't have that swag about you man; you need to walk like you're on edge and one wrong move will get someone's wig split. 1 year 3 weeks
Any anime fans here?I agree, this is refreshing. I've been reading the discussion even though I don't know most of the shows mentioned anymore, but @"GothamAndMeta", Elfen Leid was the bee's knees.

Not that 28% is bad, but you'll eventually learn all the reasons why this isn't a good thing to use (yet). Second thing is that you should spend time learning the industry. Sell side and buy... 1 year 3 weeks

So I began finding out what banking was and discovered that it was indeed awesome, and set out to get into I-banking... 1 year 3 weeks
