School and Chess

Hello everybody,

I haven't been active much because of school. Its just getting tougher in 8th grade. My chess is doing slightly good right now I think. I've beaten some higher ranked people than me. I hope everybody is doing well.

    When I was in school all the work was difficult for me. But then I did not study much, alll play and no work. Now its all work and no play, it balanced out.

    I stayed away from chess.com forever, (ask my friends) because I had to prioritize my social/personal life. My school is so important to me, I became withdrawn from everything so I could focus. I'm going (hopefully) to Duke University when I graduate, and the Internet was too much of a distraction. Take the wise road, and prioritize! Now, I'm a better person because I took a break from it all to see where I was versus where I wanted to be. I ended a lot of friendships, and my longest relationship ever, because I realized how things changed and that it wasn't what I needed, nor wanted.

    In the end, I returned to chess.com today, after having won 2nd place at chess championships last weekend, and seeing what I really want in life. I'm in a much more pleasurable point in my life than I was, being focused on friends and boys (girls, we all know it. wink wink). Learn from the mistakes, and don't make them again(: Good luck to all!

    Chess has ruined a lot of lives over the years, a lot of my friends who should be doctors today are no longer in that line because they paid too much attention to chess than their studies back in the days.
