    Default Just Completed my First Full Year Trading

    Cannot believe it. As the title says really; two contracts and three extensions (one still in progress 'til Dec) and I've completed my first year. Feeling pretty good about everything, definitely learnt a lot of lessons along the way.

    I feel very differently about life when compared with this time last year - I was in a job where I was sick of politics, sick of HR and frankly, sick of going to work. I now feel really quite good about the stuff I've been working on, having more control over what I do and don't get involved with, etc. I'm actually hoping for a short amount of bench time over the Christmas and New Year period to brush up on some new tech and take a few exams so I can hit next year even harder than this one.

    Thanks for all the useful posts and advice. And all of the useless amusing ones too.

    Still haven't learnt enough to sell up my crypto and mining rig, mind.

    The Golden Rule is, if Scooty's buying, you sell, and if Scooty's selling, you buy. That's the best advice you'll ever get on here...
