    My main goal at the moment is to run a half marathon in under two hours, to do that I'm training hard.
    Another goal is to complete Skyrim because I haven't had time to play it properly since I bought it what seems like an age ago, to do this I'm playing a lot of Skyrim.

    I don't have the capital to trade. Equities mostly.

    Ah right. I'd recommend if you're wanting to become a trader. Start with like 1-2k (ideally you need 10k, but smaller amounts are okay too). And keep a track record of all the trades you make.

    Then when you go for job interviews take it with you, as it shows you're actually interested. And you will be able to have decent conversations with traders.

    I've just finished A-levels. I have a virtual portfolio, trade on US equity markets.

    Get a job in nutrition. I'll do this by hopefully securing a related placement year, doing well in my degree and then doing a masters.

    Also trying to get a toned stomach - eating healthy and doing exercises which I think are helping?! It's working nicely now anyway.

    Finally, I'm saving for Ragnaros on Hearthstone

    You enjoy running? Haha I really enjoy it, it's good to play a few hours to relax but I rarely get to play it recently.
    In terms of educational goals I'm hopefully going to Stafford Uni and doing the best I can in my forensics course, hopefully go on and get a masters then who knows

    My goal is to graduate with a 1st class degree and earn 100k-150k a year. Then I will move to Switzerland.

    I'm studying to achieve this. Oh and I'm also learning French!
    Banking?

    To pass my degree. Obviously I would want a first or 2.1 but tbh I'd be shocked at myself even just passing it. I'm studying my butt off and choosing modules I'm confident in to help me reach my goal.
