In the middle of reading financial regulations... FUCK.

In the meantime, check this song out. I know, I know, it was popular. Everyone and their dog knows this song. But take a close look at the lyrics. Especially the gals.

Superman - Five For Fighting

I can’t stand to fly
I’m not that naive
I’m just out to find
The better part of me

I’m more than a bird… I’m more than a plane
More than some pretty face beside a train
It’s not easy to be me
Wish that I could cry
Fall upon my knees
Find a way to lie
About a home I’ll never see

It may sound absurd…but don’t be naive
Even Heroes have the right to bleed
I may be disturbed…but won’t you conceed
Even Heroes have the right to dream
It’s not easy to be me

Up, up and away…away from me
It’s all right…You can all sleep sound tonight
I’m not crazy…or anything…

I can’t stand to fly
I’m not that naive
Men weren’t meant to ride
With clouds between their knees

I’m only a man in a silly red sheet
Digging for kryptonite on this one way street
Only a man in a funny red sheet
Looking for special things inside of me

It’s not easy to be me.

Come to think of it, I may have posted this before but still, it's worth a second look.

I give my respect to men who can show their human side..who can cry and bleed.

Bro this is a nice and meaningful song but it always brings my head down cos it reminds me of someone I loved very much..

For equality sake:

I'm not your superwoman...
I'm not the kind of girl that you can let down,
and think that everything is okay...
Boy I am only human...
This girl needs more than occasional hugs
as a token of love from you to me...

Trust you to balance the whole equation for me, kismet. :D

Spinnee, it's cos i absolutely love torturing myself with legal double speak and kill myself with english words that don't mean anything. That, and trying to see what kinda regulations Singapore has for boutique and hedge funds.

I already done my mod 2 and 7. That is easy compared this shit.

Spinnee, NEVER! I'm perfectly happy trading derivatives... Anyway, had a friend take 1A a couple of weeks ago... Basket, even the cert also printed on nicer paper.

The whole finance industry is biased against derivatives i tell you!
