Sorry for the lack of updates. I have no internet access at work and I work on the trade floor. Go figure. Their firewall is pretty tight too - I tried all my usual tricks and I can't even get through. Nice work.

Work is getting really boring. No, wait, it is very boring. Just like what I have done for the past couple of work terms. The only difference is that now I work for a bank. A big bank. Which if I screw up can lose the bank millions. No, billions of euros. 7:00am is killing me. I was sorta late for the first day, and I barely made it to work at 6:55am this morning. I swear people don't sleep there. No matter what time of day, somebody is on the trade floor. Perhaps that's because there's always a market that is open 24 hours a day around the world.

Perks about the job - I get to learn a lot about the financial system. Such as bond trading and government debts. Hedging, BPVs, you name it. Hopefully soaking on the trade floor for four months will make me aware of all these things so I can further my trade skills in the financial sector.

Still planning trips around London and in the UK. Not thinking about outside of the country yet. There's so much to explore even in London. I think I'm cutting down the number of countries I am visiting (for the mere reason that I don't have the money). Paris is a must. I'm actually favouring Greece now. Perhaps even Italy. Oh and how can we forget the Netherlands. :)

Tomorrow is Friday, so don't be surprised if there is no update tomorrow. I'll hopefully have some pictures up soon. :)
