The site has been put on the back burner for the last few days, and it looks like it may have to stay there for a while. I have my final "midterm" tomorrow, but with public transportation (in Southern California) and dedicating my time to trading my friend's account, I am struggling to find time for the site. While I still try to keep a journal of my trades (riding the bus is good for that and reading), I tend to crash when I get home. Naps are the fruit of the Gods.

I really need to spend some time outside as well. With my brother or with friends. I may come back, and I hope I do (I enjoy you people); and I definitely won't stop reading your sites (whether or not it's healthy, I spend quite a bit of time reading blogs). I just don't know exactly when I can update daily again, or if it is even a good idea to utilize my time that way.

I won't hold it against you if you take me off your blog lists. Actually, if I'm not back and posting within a week, I'd recommend it. I'm tired. And I think I need a long nap.

The contest finishes up on Friday. The results are below and it looks like Charlie's goal is so far achieved =). Whoever wins, send me an email with your address and I'll get your copy of Liar's Poker sent off to you. I'll still be doing the lottery for The Losing Game if anyone is interested in it (it's probably a little too gloomy, angry, and not backed up with many facts for most of you; at least for me).

As always, check out the links to the right. Those are some high quality blogs over there.

Thank you for reading my blog. Take care,

Ryan (aka Complacent Panda)

Sounds almost like a goodbye ;( There's only so much time in a day.

Pace yourself Panda.

I think the others in the contest got the cues you were getting a little burned and stopped contest trading - but I didn't notice, sorry - no need to keep it going for me, but I think I'm pretty safe not coming in last place this time.

I think I'm completely burned out.

I'll still ship out the book though. There's just a little too much going on at the moment for me to keep up. I'm getting stressed out and depressed. Which sucks. Trying to get into shape too (another thing to focus on), helps with the trading discipline.

There's just too much going on =/ and my priorities are shifting.

Hey, I took off all last March. Blogging is somewhat thankless and it takes a shitload of time if you do it daily.

Enjoy your time off (however long) and don't be a stranger.

Good luck on your exams.

Hi CP,

Take your time. Maybe come back in the summer.

Hopefully, everything works out.

Don't be a stranger though!!

Good luck,
