Follow the System!

I had four large losses so far, two of which were placed during the Christmas holiday season.

All four losses had similar qualities, they all didn't have proper risk management. I didn't place stop losses on the last two.

My lesson from this expensive ordeal is that I must have stop losses, I must have risk management in place, and most important of all: I must follow the system!

Follow the system!

ls2 2nd midterm results

Guess what? I scored a 94 out 100! Rank wise, I scored 6th out of 244th!

I'm rather proud of this accomplishment, however, because I lost so many points on the last midterm and discussion quizzes, I really needed to score higher on this test. But I still have a final and two quizzes left.

wish me luck!

motivation

I screwed up on the first LS2 midterm. during the summer I took LS1 and chem14A, both of which I got A's in and so I went into my first quarter here thinking this will be a piece of cake. So I approached ls2 very mechanically, doing basically the same thing that I did during the summer, reading and taking notes and reading notes to prepare for the exam. However, I ended up with a 80. The average was 75. And since the class is curved so that only 10 percent get A's. I basically need to get EVERYTHING right from now on to have a slight chance of getting an A in the class.

I realize something about my situation: what was lacking during these few weeks was my motivation to get the grade. I thought this would be easy shit, and I didn't follow through. So now I need to be focused and motivated! MOTIVATED! I have six weeks to prove to myself I can be better than the other students and beat the curve!

UCLA!

USC didn't offer me any money other than the half tuition scholarship so I picked UCLA! I'm very excited! I got into Berkeley too, but I like UCLA more.

7 days until Graduation! Woohoo!

going to UCLA

I have gotten into all of my schools so far, and I'm quite sure that I will attend UCLA. The only school that might have a chance at pulling me away from UCLA is Columbia, but I don't know, I don't think I'm quite ready to leave LA for New York. I don't think I can live in New York by myself with other strangers. I have friends and family in LA, and I'll probably become a Bruin very soon!
