At least i can see some serious motivation, and a plan...maybe a bit short on strategy and friends, but hey....

The accountancy studies, the job hunt, the strategy to join a micro finance branch, the preparation leading to the 3000$ removal....

And then he realizes he's been seeing too big, in no way he can drink up to x6000 beers alone in a night...and then what ?

What a night,
What a morning after that !
