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

    I want moobs. I want to change my name to Nobbly Bobbly. I want to stop tripping over nothing and almost falling face first into toilets. I want to be a new man. To achieve that I need to be touched in special ways.

    Here's mine in case anyone was wondering:

    Buy my mum a house. I've just gotten a job at a hedge fund and also do tutoring as a second income stream.

    Run the western states 100: I've run 100km before so just more training really.

    Read 1000 books: I just think it would be cool to do this, so I'm reading 2 books a week. (This will take a little under a decade).

    Learn Mandarin: I can already speak Japanese, and Cantonese, so just new words to learn.

    not going to bore people with the rest.

    I trade a bit of everything. It's roughly a split of 65% equities 15% commodities 10% FX and 5% rates, then keep 5% in reserve for day trading opportunities and as margin.

    1. Study Hard
    2. Get first class degree
    3. ????
    4. Profit!



    :giggle:


    Just saying, should be thinking less about what grade you're getting and more how you're going to get that kinda money with your degree. Even if you have a plan, you haven't said it.
