And I'm Back...

Hello again friend. Yes, it's been a long time since my last post and no, I'm not dead. Although I could go into great detail about what's been going on for the past few months, and trust me, it's been an exciting time, the details are tedious at times, boring and rather unrelated to the purpose of this blog. In short, I allowed many pursuits of varying importance take me away from trading. However, I'm back and am moving forward with renewed energy and a modicum of wisdom.

The main thing I've been confronted with is the idea of finding a way to create a sustainable schedule. You may have noticed, wondered or otherwise mused about my ability to sustain such a full schedule. Between full time work, music gigs and teaching, a failed love interest, learning about Trading, Stocks, Options, Market Theory, and blogging multiple times a week I was on a quick path to burnout. Eventually all of it caught up to me and I found myself spread too thin, out of energy, in poor health, mentally and physically exhausted and otherwise not leading a healthy, balanced life. I've rearranged my schedule, learned how to say no to competing interests and am holding myself to a schedule with blocks of time dedicated to trading. And not to worry, I'll continue to add to this blog at least once a week to keep you kind folks abreast of what's current.

For those of you who have been longtime readers of my blog, I feel I need to give you an update on the trade journaling software that I've dubbed ScoreCard. The vision is not dead, far from it. The vision is even clearer than ever. Unfortunately the first team of software developers I was working with fell apart. This did cause a bit of angst on my part and has certainly contributed to my silence on the subject. I've managed to regroup and establish new connections and a new group of talented programmers to make this vision a reality. ScoreCard is much more than a glimmer in my eye, stay tuned for future postings.

Thanks for sticking with me, audience. I will continue to bring you as much insight as I can. The story is definitely not over, and the best is yet to come.
