Hey!
I got a Financial Markets midterm exam this morning. I should ideally be studying right now, but I thought I’d use this small break to write a newsletter instead. Wish me luck!
I have been quite busy lately, and for all the right reasons, I suppose. I mean, I know what I have signed up for. So, I am not complaining, but it gets really overwhelming at times. Fortunately, I have a bunch of friends who stand by me.
The Diwali celebrations were epic! I met up with so many people and ended up admiring yet many more. I also put on ethnic wear for probably the first time in my life. Of course, it went great.
We also celebrated the birthday of one of our best friends. Seeing your close friend happy on her birthday, away from home, is one of the most satisfying feelings ever. And to satisfy the spirits of the kid inside me, I got to pop a lot of balloons, so I loved it.
Of course, life has its ups and downs. For some reason, we don’t talk anymore. I mean, I am not on speaking terms (or at least nothing is normal) with the person I thought I admired the most. But, it’s probably ok. Life and feelings, in general, have their ways of playing out, as one of our beloved professors would tell you. It’s funny how everything suddenly changes one afternoon.
That’s it for this issue of the newsletter. I really should get back to solving numerical problems. Please take care of yourself and those around you. Until next time!

Books
I am reading Poor Economics by Abhijit V. Banerjee & Esther Duflo. It has proved very insightful so far. In the meantime, you should check out my reading list.
I have also resumed reading Nothing Much Happens by Kathryn Nicolai.
There are just so many things going on in life that I have been slacking off on reading. I need to return the book to the library soon. I think I’ll buy the paperback.
Please let me know if you know of better/faster ways of reading books.

You'll still get email after you die. You won't answer those either.

Puts things in perspective, doesn't it?
