looks like december will be a crazy low volume month for me with xmas coming up and me not really having any time/motivation to do grinding. Its a nice change of pace to just be able to hang out with fam/friends/gf and enjoy some nice music in a bar/ check out some xmas markets or just do nothing. thus i decided to wrap up this thread witha yearly summary.
*** 2013 summary***

[ ] move up aggressively.
lol. BrNits gonna BrNit
[?] live healthier.
meh, what started out as a very healthy year started slidng really hard around september and culminated in a november where i think i ordered 5 pizzas/week didnt leave the house and chainsmoked. def made progress in terms of my abilities to live healthy tho: learned to cook lots of new healthy dishes, worked out a lot more than in 2012, ran the 10k in Cardiff etc but what i ve failed to learn is balanc which is prob the single most important thing to learn for me at this point
[x] move to Malta again.
not for long but goals gonna goal
[x] work hard!
While to be honest i feel like it was a lazy year (took almost 4 months off wtf) I have made big progress wrt my work ethic. I did a ton of strat, reviewed lots by myself, watched gazllions of vids (despite most being lolbad) and cranked out 3 200hr months. increased my Hrs/month avg by 40 hrs this year which is decent but def room to improve and be more consistent with it.
[ ] 500k VPPs.
this was a lofty goal even if i had stayed at cash but obv there was no way for me to get that done with donkaments. didnt even get 100k but no sweat
all in all i set pretty ******ed goals but i think the year has been a success in many ways and i have learned a lot throughout 2013. as they say, when u look back at yourself 6mo/12mo ago and u dont think u were a fish u havent worked hard. From that perspective i can def say i ve worked my ass off haha
resultswise the year went pretty well although i made a few mistakes wrt mental game/ staking/ game selecting/ site selecting and stakes to play which all cost me $$$ but all those have been valuable lessons tho which will make 2014 a big year with a ton of potential for me and i m really looking forward to it!
as for the numbers:
If i had to guess i personally profited around $60-65k over the year (after rakeback/staking/being staked/ rebuys / etc)
I ll probably make a new fred for 2014 for which i have some pretty big goals which i m absolutely planning to crush so stay tuned
I d like to thank all the ppl who have contributed to this thread be it by posting or lurking as well as all the awesome ppl i have met/spent time with throughout the year for making 2013 an awesome year for me u guys and i wish yall the best of luck next year!
