When I was a young mother of three, we had an informal tradition. Saturday mornings after breakfast, my husband would head to Dunkin’ Donuts and bring donuts home for the girls and coffee for us.
By 8:00, breakfast was over, dishes done, and I had already diffused several scuffles over toys, bathed and dressed our youngest (1), and then to add insult to injury, the washer overflowed. Tide bubbles were everywhere, taunting me.
There are highly competitive roller (on roller blades) hockey leagues, girls field hockey leagues. What kid hasn’t played gym or floor hockey. In bars or bowling alley there used to exist air hockey tables. And some arcades had bubble hockey tables where you control your men with rods, as in foosball.
I don’t know why you think that sustainable, profitable growth and hockey stick growth are mutually exclusive. You can achieve sustained profitability and hockey stick growth at the same time.
Eventually valuations will come back to normal, and more investors will return to good fundamental investing. Regardless, you want to focus on profitability because profitability will give you the best chance of long term success.
Her hobbies include brutally killing off characters at the worst possible times, obsessing over Quora, and of course, dressing up her dog as a fairy princess against his will. She also enjoys drinking iced tea (sweetened), performing in musicals, and watching Wheel of Fortune, as well as reading young adult dystopian novels and playing bubble hockey.
She was born in California and moved to another state at the young age of four months old. Since then, she’s only ever lived in one place. She actually hates traveling- unless it’s to see her adorable younger cousins- and despises airplanes. Her other hatreds include toe socks, puppets, smoke, bras that hook in the front, camping, and being without her beloved best friend, Violet Isabelle Everlark.
As a professional procrastinator, most of Vi’s content is written around midnight, which is usually the time her homework gets done. She’s starting high school in less than a month and hopes to join the creative writing club, color guard, and some sort of film making class.
Her biggest weaknesses would have to be that she’s extremely ticklish and can be painfully shy. However, writing and acting help her move past the latter. The first one is very difficult to combat.
Her Quora answers almost always include her sign-off or have something to do with a certain guy named Aiden, who she’s only slightly obsessed with. At 124 followers, her account isn’t huge- she’s certainly no Ethan James- but she has good answers every now and then.
I’ve lived in Madison since 2005. When people ask I tell them Madison is a hard town to leave. It is very livable besides the relatively high cost of rent. It is a liberal bubble in an otherwise conservative state. The winters can be tough but there is nowhere else I’d rather spend the summers.
Plenty of concerts and theater preformances come through town and there are many options for local entertainment as well. Madison is a Platinum bike city so be sure to plan on plenty of two-wheeling. There is a tavern culture here which involves beer, beer and more beer. Sporting events are taken seriously: Badger games (all sports), Ironman Wisconsin, Ultimate Frisbee, Roller Derby, minor league hockey and baseball, sailing, winter sports, CrossFit Games, the list goes on. People are easy going and take cheese seriously. Food is great (and local), beer is great (and local). I could go on but I think I’ll just meet you down at the Terrace after the Farmer’s Market for a pitcher.
