After a year of living in Thailand, balling out with a shitload of poker players, not knowing what day it is (in fact, i'm ashamed to say it took me a good minute to remember what year it was when I was at the airport.. i am aware this is a terrible thing), getting drunk 4x/week and travelling to 13 different countries to sight-see and party, I am back in the UK.
I'm back to Surrey to be precise. The move was looong. I had way too much stuff in my possession. I don't quite know how I had that much stuff even if you do ignore my ridiculous collection of Japanese t-shirts.
I'm back to finish degree in business at university. Moved in to a 6 person house with 5 close friends. It's worlds away from the life I've had for the past year (living in the penthouse of the 36th&37th floor which the ambassador of Switzerland had just moved out of comes to mind), however that's not to say it's worse in any way.. in fact I know it will be awesome, despite having to get up at unsociable hours (9am) and not having a maid (this just starting to sink in). It will however be nice to not be spending 5 figures each month on just living and going out.
Poker has not been going as I had hoped. I had my worst ever downswing recently (and I have had a few $100k/50+bi downswings), and technically am still in it. Also feel aside from this I am running super bad (not just EV wise, which, obviously doesn't look pretty). Though now starting to settle into the new house, have the two 30" monitors back up and running and am ready to grind again!
Along with this, I'm starting to get a few investments together. Me and my cousin are buying a daycare center which she will run and we will split the investments/profits down the middle. Also invested in an app and looking into making another one with a friend, which I will keep people up to date with as and when they are released.
Basically I'm just trying to diversify a lot, and get passive income coming in to go with the rent from my flat that I bought. The hope.. to have enough passive income coming in so that it pays for my lifestyle and I can do whatever i want wherever i want.
Edit: Still wondering if FTP are gonna give us all back the money they stole off us, not quite up to date on that subject.. really should try catching up.
