Thanks Sloan!

As for the business, I'm still not sure about what I want to do. I've begun to learn that I prefer to do more marketing/management related jobs as opposed to financial ones.

What I try to do (although sometimes I forget) is to keep a notepad with me at all times, and scribble down whatever pops into my head. Then everyday I'll review it and see what I can decipher.

I've realized that the real first-movers in business are the ones who had the strength to try an idea that, at the time, others thought was ludicrous (see: EBAY). And I've also realized that while it is cliche, this does require some "thinking outside the box."

I love market research, so I've been looking into some things there that haven't "blown up" yet. One thing I've come across is ethnography, which is market research that uses anthropologists instead of business school grads. This has piqued my interest, but again I'm still trying to figure things out.

Fortunately I'm still young, so I've got time to figure it out. I'd love to hear about what anyone else is doing, or even how other people organize their thoughts and ideas.
