Stock Market Woes

Unbelievable how this stock market keeps tumbling week after week so far in 2016. Lots of chatter about the reasons behind this. China’s slowing economy? The federal interest rate hike? The lowering price of oil? HFT or computers gaming the entire system?

I have no doubt the stock market will eventually bounce back. But when? That’s the key question. Because the market will bounce back, only to sink even lower.

Other than that, I’ve been hanging to my positions for the long haul.


My Vegan Lifestyle

Keep in mind, I haven’t really been focused on losing weight. Just eating a super healthy Vegan Diet and seeing where this leads me. In short, more energy and just feeling healthier than I was on a SAD Diet.

And I noticed on Cron-o-meter that I lost 3 pounds since August 2015! That’s a big whopping 3 pounds in 6 months!

The thing is, my clothes feel loser so I’ve managed to get lean muscle while losing some fat.

I think these gradual losses are more permanent compared to losing weight quickly. That weight quickly lost can be gained back somehow, and the person suffers from yo-yo dieting, something I’ve had personally experience with many times.

So, I’d rather just focus on eating health and vegan, and losing the weight gradually over the years. That is the best way to go for permanent weight loss.


My Hacker Symbol

This is my hacker symbol. Also representative of a Yogic practice.


The 3 dots represent body, mind and soul. The dot above is God, Samadhi, Enlightenment, or being at one with the universe.

The 3 dots can also represent the father, the son and the holy spirit.

The 3 dots also symbolize three things:

  • 1. Our outer physical body and the physical world around us.
  • 2. Our inner mental and emotional state.
  • 3. Our spirituality, or our spiritual being (essence).
