Merry Christmas 2018!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Merry Christmas everyone! I know that I promised I would try and get the latest newsletter out before Christmas, alas, I got close to finishing it off but then got caught up with the holiday season… and spirit.

It’s been an extremely tough (brutal) year in the markets, and there’s a ton of things to say, but you know, sometimes you just have to find a way to put that aside and re-focus on the important stuff in life…

This Christmas, same as last year, I spent it in Manila…

For this year, I ended up at Rico’s Lechon, located in the Tiendesitas shopping complex (Pasig).

1/2 kilo of spicy lechon… Comfort food, at its finest!

Certainly, I’m doing my best to have a good time out here, but no question I miss everyone back home in the Bay Area. Shout out to you all, and to all the readers scattered across the globe.

Christmas season is a great time to reflect, no doubt…

Lots of things didn’t go right this year for yours truly, but there were many silver linings as well, some of which I am most grateful for.

As you all know, around mid-year, I was fortunate enough to be able to eradicate myself out of a most horrid situation in Shitcago, selling some rental properties at a MASSIVE LOSS, but nevertheless, the peace of mind gained from being able to move on with my life unencumbered by that nightmarish mess is… priceless.

And since I’ve been back in Manila, you can say that I’m a changed person, again, hopefully for the better…

 

Just trying harder to appreciate all the good things in my life…

Finding inner peace…

Letting go of the past… All the mistakes/fuck ups/disasters/heartbreak/etc.

 

Life goes on, whether you’re ready for it or not…

 

But this time of year, there’s really nothing like Christmas…

 

 

So, I do apologize for being late (again) on the newsletter, but I really did my best and got up to 4,000 words or so of writing before I ultimately decided I had to call it a day…

 

And enjoy the Christmas holiday.

 

Now, it’s back to work…

 

Fight On!
