The Traders Fair was on today. I really just wanted to see one trader from the US who I really admire. I’m on her company’s mailing list, which is how I heard about the Fair in the first place. She had two 2-hour sessions today. Her morning session was a FULL HOUSE – all the seats were filled!! 😲 And there were people standing at the back of the room. I guess other people really like her too! So I wanted to grab a quick bite to eat during the one hour between her sessions, to make sure I get a seat and don’t end up standing for two hours all the way up the back! 😆
I didn’t have time for breakfast this morning, and my quick bite was very small, so again, I was just running on adrenalin for most of the day. Not good! I know what my body is like. It never does well just running on adrenalin. Case in point was this time last week, when I ended up crashing a few days after 😔 So I’m going to try and have a quieter evening, to make sure I don’t crash and burn in the next few days, just before I fly to HK!
Overall I actually enjoyed the content of all the sessions that I attended at the Fair. My key takeaway from the day: I am doing the right things in order to succeed at this trading game – even if it doesn’t feel like it at times! 😆 I picked up some new things as well, and also reminded of a few other things that I have forgotten in recent months. Now I’m terribly excited to get back into my trading. I just want to get this move sorted – and to find a place to actually live in once we get to the other side! – so that I can get back on my trading wagon 😊
This evening, I decided to order takeaway from a new place that’s opened just down the road from us. As I was walking there, I went past one of our regular haunts just a few shops down, and the waiter who usually takes our order was at the front, and we waved hello to each other. I felt guilty ordering takeaway from one of their competitors. I felt like I was betraying them! So as I stood around waiting for my order, I was trying to hide so that he doesn’t see me outside the other shop 😆
Ah, I’m going to miss these small things, these relationships that you build up over time. Things that you just take for granted as you go about your life – until that life is uprooted and takes you on a totally different path. So we’ll be establishing new routines once again once we arrive in our new country. Ah… Such is our life.
As I promised to myself, I took it easy tonight. I watched the next episode of Madam Secretary while I munched away at my dinner. I felt like that episode was better written compared to the first one. I think I’m going to enjoy this series, it’s looking promising! 👍
And I cleaned out one of the last two drawers that needed sorting. Once we clean out the medicine drawer, then we’ll be ready to roll. Wow. I can’t believe we got to this point, it didn’t seem possible at one point. I’m sure if I read through my blog posts these past few weeks I’ll probably find something that mentions this seemingly insurmountable task. So I think for the last few days that I’m in SG, I’ll just continue updating my itemised inventory list so that it is up-to-date for HK.
Oh and our visas for HK arrived today. It’s all happening now! 😲
