I'm on a pretty nasty downer right now, I've managed to spunk away $3000 in under a week. It's all part of a correction that I knew would have to come eventually, I was way over expectations during Sep-Nov ($7K over) but it's still a bitter pill to swallow.
My neteller roll now sits at $15000, and my GBP roll at £5500 so I'm in no danger of going busto just yet. But as my roll also covers my living expenses (I'd rather my savings went untouched) an element of doubt occassionally creeps in.
There seem to be two approaches to tackling these swings:
1) Sit it out for a while, take a break from the grind, actually get out of the apartment for a decent length of time, see some new places, interact with new people....generally live like any 'normal' person does.
2) Work even harder to recover the losses, spend even more hours in solitary confinement thinking that the good times are just around the corner.
In the past I've always taken option 2) but the weather in Buenos Aires is awesome right now so I'm really leaning towards option 1).
If I don't post for a while you know why.
