Spring 2008 Semester

Alena being a student.My spring and, hopefully, last semester at Baruch has started last Friday.

Honestly, I feel overwhelmed already. O.o

There is a Business Policy (BPL) class, where we’ll be participating in some kind of business game. Teams (6 total) of 4 people will be acting as managers of a company, which produces dinnerware (any suggestions how to name the company?). Continue Reading

My Wife

Hot WifeFirst of all I just want to say that I’ve got a very beautiful wife, whom I love with all my heart.

Second is that I think that I finally managed to take a portrait which is worth posting.

Granted, it’s easier to end up with a good one when you have a subject like Alёna. )

Having said all of the above I’m clearly a very biased “viewer”, so the comments on the photo will be appreciated. teeth

Flamenco Show

Flamenco TicketsAnother one of my little dreams came true last night — we went to see Flamenco Show! The performance that we watched was under the umbrella of 2008 New York City Flamenco Festival and presented Eva Yerbabuena and her latest creation “Wonders and Signs”.

Overall I liked the show, although some parts of it were slightly repetitive. Dance which left the greatest impression was in the beginning of the performance and can be seen on YouTube.

What I know after the show is that I really DO like Flamenco — even the specific singing which annoyed Maruks. ) The NY City Hall, where the performance took place Continue Reading

Snowing

Snowing in BrooklynIt decided to really snow for the first time this year. I did see some snowflakes on days before, but nothing really stuck. Now it’s being going at it for a good portion of the night and is still going strong.

Books and Bookcases

IKEA BILLY BookcaseA lot of things are happening, but we haven’t been writing much about it. My parents have moved into their new apartment almost 2 months ago. All this time they have been slowly finding and buying the furniture for their new home.

It’s been an exhausting, yet fun experience. Problems like these are my favorite kind of problems. At this point however they are very close to done.

The latest addition is the IKEA BILLY bookcase system. Huge thanks to Misha for helping us get all of it to Brooklyn. Without his help there is no way we would be able to get it. Long live the minivan… and its owner! teeth

My dad has brought a lot of books from Tashkent with him. All this time they’ve been hidden away or stacked Continue Reading

Spring Break Vacation

Another vacation time is nearing and we starting thinking about our possibilities. One of the best ones we had was a trip in October of 2005, when we drove from Phoenix to Sedona to Grand Canyon and to Las Vegas. Road trip seems like a good idea this time around too.

First we considered where we could go from New York without repeating something that we’ve done before. Cincinnati, Indianapolis maybe? Then we remembered that we’re not Continue Reading

Futures Class

Futures Open PositionsI’m in school right now — have a long break between classes due to club hours in Baruch1. Wanted to say a couple of words about my semester so far. My favorite, and probably, the most challenging class is Futures. Professor Martell is really knowledgeable, devoted … and funny. ) He makes it a point to remember our names — I like that too. His jokes help me to digest the material, and to stay awake in class. )

As for the simulation on StockTrak2 — I still feel like I don’t know what I’m doing. I try to read news about commodities, and to diversify my portfolio to minimize the risk, but that’s about it. I have no idea how to perform technical analysis — need to look into it more.

  1. Club hours are between 12.30 and 2.30 every Thursday. []
  2. The image above represents my current open positions in the futures contracts. []
