Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is not only my all-time favorite book, nor is it simply the book to which countless reviews (including one from the Dow Jones Newswire) have compared my book, but the activity itself is actually quite helpful for trading because it’s only through careful reflection of the past that we are better prepared for the future.
After many weeks filled with too many 20-hour work days, I enjoy reminiscing about my favorite annual trip, the Sundance Film Festival. Over the past five years, my friends and I have had some wild and crazy times: partying our asses off, schmoozing with celebs, networking, gawking at the seemingly near-plastic LA models/wannabe actresses and seeing incredible movies many months before they’re fit for public consumption (get ready for The Wackness), but this year the trip went by far too quickly.
Perhaps it was because most of my friends now have serious girlfriends or that my newfound blogging business/TIMtv consumed most of my time or the fact that because I was working so much, I didn’t get to enjoy Sundance as much as I would’ve liked.
But the entire trip was made worthwhile by my brief encounter with the stunning Maria Bello. She may be a bit older than me, out of my league and in a committed relationship, but when we met, sparks flew.
Don’t take my word for it, see for yourself:
We’ll see what happens next time our paths cross…
