same....

Also I'm afraid I won't be able to purchase a house at a place I want to settle down in. Supply is lower every day.

that whoever I end up marrying long-term has ulterior motives and will divorce me for my money. This sounds so stupid, but as bankers I feel like many of us have these thoughts. Really sad. Hope it doesn't happen, but very difficult to discern when it comes to certain women.Β

This is mostly only the case for the guys who put all of their energy into their career.Β  If you're an attractive, interesting, and decent person, then someone will absolutely like you for who you are.Β  If you spend all of your time thinking about yourself and your finance career, you'll be missing one or more (or all) of those qualities, and it's likely that the women who are willing to be with you just see dollar signs, because really that's all you are.

Ditching "the path" to have time to enjoy what life is really about (love, friends, family, my own kids someday) only to find myself either priced out of a lifestyle I may one day want more than the one I have at a given time or unable to return IB/PE and living with that hanging regret. Flip side is continuing down the path only to miss out on the things I mentioned life is really about.

Choose your suffering.

Plus the fact that with the expansion, most stars wouldn't be visible in a few billion years since light would never be able to travel the distance to us (observable universe will have less visible matter)

Is this thread about video games or the CFA lmao

I’m a fun guy. Obviously I love the game of basketball. I mean there’s more questions you have to ask me in order for me to tell you about myself. I'm not just gonna give you a whole spill... I mean, I don't even know where you're sitting at

Disappointing the people that went to batΒ for me and helped me get my analyst position.Β  Sales and Trading runs in the family and my dad had a giant part in shaping me into who I am today and helped me get in contact with his mentor who helped me get an offer.Β  I'm scared to death to disappoint either and that fear makes me bust my ass even harder.Β  I'm also afraid that the lack of work life balance will lead to my girlfriend resenting me.

Personally it would be along the lines of sustaining some sort of life changing physical injury. I couldn't imagine not being able to do something as basic as walking, let alone not being able to continue an active lifestyle.Β 

Yeah this is probably my biggest fear - being paralyzed from the waist or neck down and being forced to live. I almost got in a crash this morning - some Camaro almost sideswiped me on the bike. Scared AF.Β

I'm only 24 but man I feel like I am wasting my life away and don't have time for things that I want. Recruiting to bigger cities is taking so long due to covid hiring freezes so my best bet will be moving by the time I'm 25, but then that's only a few years before my gf wants to get married and then kids a few years after that. Just feel like life is flying by and I'm wasting it. Idk. Very privileged where I am now with career stuff but damn, always wished I figured out what I wanted to do before graduating.
