Today is Christmas Eve, I made this post to leave some things recorded. The first record is that I’m going to be working 24 hours today, I’m actually posting this here in my work schedule on the cell phone, I’m going to work at the turn of the year 24h, Christmas, I do not even care about working because I do not have religion and my family besides To live far away, everyone lives in a different city and most of them already have their nuclear families again, all but me, the last time my nuclear family got together (father, mother and brothers) was in 2005 as I remember, it is a mission Very difficult since my parents have been separated since 1995.
People do not want to talk or have shame, but it’s fucking being the son of separated parents, or it’s hard to grow up in a broken family, although it’s fashionable and very, very many people have their parents separated, this is not normal, It will never be normal, and anyone who thinks that this is normal and does not influence the moral and spiritual formation of the children is a sick person, as far as parents do not know, maybe they are better about it, but the children always screw up.
I have a friend who, even after being an adult (25 years old), was very disturbed by the separation of his parents (who were already 60), but very shaken EVEN, of not wanting to leave home, to revolt, to fight with The father, then the mother and so on. And take expensive plane tickets to see everyone, loss of work and that feeling that did not help much, this thing of pretending to unite the family, see at the end of the year and think that will solve something, will not. Better to wait for a more spontaneous and less artificial moment to see the staff.
When things lose their naturalness and charm, it’s fuck. My brothers and I send money and pay some bills from our parents, we are their retirement, just like almost 99% of Brazilians they did not plan financially and they will live forever receiving that INSS minimum that does not work. To get better, I’ll give them the money I’m sending them from January to now, so that they can buy something decent for Christmas and have a nice ticket, which will be much better than mine, working alone, away, alone and with a galley that I do not know if you consider me very much, even though being Brazilian is fucking being away from your land, people do not have as much appreciation and consideration as if you were from their land, you are always going to be an opportunistic outsider who is not making money in your city And came here to earn the money of others, and that’s not why I came to stop here, it was for a personal and not a professional reason, but that they pretend not to see.
Well, I’m going to register here that I’m going to fuck myself this year, working Christmas and New Year. In a few years, I will go back, look at this post and see that it was worth it, that every effort will be rewarded and that the years and periods of agony were not in vain. This time is difficult for many people, has a lot of suicide, a lot of drugs and alcohol, a lot of sadness, from those who live far away, are alone or have no family or friends anymore, that’s the bad side of Christmas, so As in the US is Thanksgiving.
Last year I was living there and yet, without much to do with the date, I was very sad at that date, because everyone at your side is tremendously happy planning to eat and spend the night with family and friends and you’re there immigrant, Kind of screwed up and alone, so the immigrants try to get together to be less bad and that half bomb thing is going on, everybody is leaning on everybody, until it’s cool because it strengthens their friendship with other immigrants who are worse off, like I was, many trying to make a living fleeing their countries to win in the USA.
About Fischer’s book I have already passed the half, I read very slowly, it is a difficult and archaic English (the book is more than 50 years old) and I found the way he writes very hard, the reading is difficult to flow, I think also I’m reading it at times when I’m very tired or sleepy. If I finish the book and I think I did not enjoy it, I’ll reread it or I’ll buy a Portuguese edition.
Buy and Hold is, above all, an exercise of faith (not in the religious sense). Faith in what you know works and you are convinced that it is an excellent choice for the long term. Although my wallet is at -15% this year I’m still when the anxiety increases, I read an article, a book, watch a video, all about buy and hold and renew my faith. The truth is that life, the world, people, newspapers, brokers, charts, profitability comparisons, the illusion of fixed income and high-interest rates, the press and the universe exist to screw up with buy and Hold. No investor is more hated in the world than the guy who makes a monthly purchase at the brokerage firm and does not follow news and signs anything from financial newsletters and other agencies.
The holder does not make a profit for anyone, just for him, my broker does not like me, my bank manager explicitly hates me because I do not buy anything from the bank to help her beat her goals. The happy part is that I will receive almost 3k in dividends now in December, slowly the snowball of the dividends begins to grow, who would say, to those who started celebrating R $ 33.00 of BBAS3 dividends with that naive and childlike joy of child, This month I will receive almost R $ 900.00 from BBAS, not bad.
This week I will study and read a lot about PEGY. The staff at Bastter gave an update on this and found it interesting, seems to be a new item very cool to follow the evolution of the companies, I just found a complex to understand, I will study to learn more. I keep reading other blogosphere blogs to try to learn something useful.
For now, that’s it, I’m staying here and this post will be a mark for posterity.
Merry Christmas to everyone and 2016 of hard work, study, dedication, growth and new achievements in your personal and financial life.
