8/18 Chess in the Park
What's up for Next Week after Such a great week
IV. Analysis and Commentary
Trying to make new friends today with some chess in the park, all my friends died…again.
What is there to say really other than it was right to prepare ourselves for downside and take the journey down?
We sit here on a field of victory, glorious in battle.

Be thankful for these opportunities we have received, and rejoice on this Friday.
META 0.00%↑ - META was easy. 291>275 in less than a day. a 15+ dollar pick up, glad we were able to catch it and profit enormously from it. It rotated perfectly off 275 and after I closed, I went to go play chess.
I hope you enjoy the pods we’re putting out. And if you’re not able to laugh with me, hopefully you’re able to laugh at me.
I also take serious pride in this being an affordable educational site. I am adding a veteran discount on top of adding student discounts to subscriptions.
VETERAN DISCOUNTS FOR WIZ SUBSTACK (need a vmail.vet address)
STUDENT DISCOUNTS for WIZ SUBSTACK (need an educational institution address)
If you enjoy the stack, make sure to like this post, restack, retweet, subscribe to the tribe. It goes a long way and I think 95% of those that upgrade will say they’ve seen their trading improve incredibly. But enough of the biz, let’s get down to wiz.
I don’t know, life can be weird. I spent a long time of my life chasing after trying to be what I thought people liked, and never chased what I like.
The hard part of it is, I didn’t really realize that that was what I was doing. It was either because I wanted to be accepted, or if they liked me, maybe they would help me get something I wanted. I ended up in places I didn’t want to be, and the people I was trying to get to accept me, I didn’t really even like.
Isn’t that fkd up?
But I thought about it for a really long time. I mean I really stretched my brain to the limits of my emotional comprehension, and after really deconstructing the why’s of what I was doing, I realized I should simply just be me.
I found that even by lending my time to figure out whether it was worth being liked, I was killing time that could be better spent doing things I want to do.
Talking about things that I like, spending times on subjects I found interesting.
It was hard at first, I gave up a lot of “friends” for things I was lonely doing at first. Then slowly, I found the others that seemed to have the same interests.
Even while I was lonely, like playing chess against a computer on a friday night in the silence of my home, and trust me I felt the full weight of sadness that comes in the dead silence of loneliness, I much preferred it to being around people just to be around people.
I was doing things that gave my own life fulfillment. I think the only real reason I felt sad, was more so a fear or worry of the ifs. What if I don’t find anyone else that likes this? What if I have to go back to doing things I hate? What if this is my life, for the rest of my life? Can I handle that?
Fear comes from not knowing or lack of understanding.
I didn’t know anyone else that was doing what I was doing. No one could tell me there story and say hey man I went off the path, and I made it. Oh you’re lonely? Ya I went through that too, that’s normal.
Life is a lot of risks and chances, we engage in them every minute, every second. They all get summed up in the totality and weight of our life, and we either feel replenished under a soft sun, or weighted like the waters of the ocean.
