Say what you will but I am getting off this roller coaster.. I just turned 30 and have wasted 5 years in this career. Constantly treading water to keep my head above water..

Took a job as a research analyst for a boutique fund company, pay actually isn;t bad considering it will be a 9-5 job...

Good Luck to the rest of you.

Yeah, if after five years you still haven't made it, that's a good choice.

The only way to succeed at this, is to forget the idea of ever quitting. Good or bad, I've always figured this was my purpose in life. Others and myself a few times questioned whether I should be doing this as a career. After a few minutes of whining and crying, I picked myself up off the floor, and got moving again... here I am 19 yrs later.

Granted, there are those folks that never should have done this in the first place. But, for some crazy reason, typically, if you can survive the first 3 years...
