Lately, my life have transformed completely...
Now I have no time to play chess and no time to even think about chess... and I simply lose to each and every opponent I (casually) play against...
So, right now I'm like: I hate chess... I love chess... I hate chess... I love chess...
Chess is time consuming... chess is beautiful!!! ... chess is a complete nonsense... chess is an art!!! ... chess is meaningless... but chess is a parallel universe for love's sake!!!
Any advice on how to stick to the cause?!
Quit your job (or find one that's less time-consuming) and leave your wife (or find one that's less time-consuming)
haha I've just started my dream job and fell in love with my dream girl LOL
guess I'm toast :))
Sigh. You should have known better, bro.
I feel the same way about cheesecake
Yes, these things will mess with your game, but it is probably only temporary.
Over time you will learn that each new job is just similar stuff packaged differently with a different stupid boss, and that no matter how beautiful, smart, and charming a woman may seem, there is a man somewhere who is sick to death of her.
Then you can get back to chess . . .
Just force yourself to play at least 1 game a day for 6 days a week and consider the last day a special day giving you a break from the harrassment you put yourself through!!haha
At the 1975 US Open in Lincoln Nebraska, I ran into IM William Martz (RIP) in the coffee shop of the Hilton. He was leaving as I was coming in, so we chatted briefly and I asked him what was good there.
"You have to try the cheesecake, it's delicious," he replied, "You can trust me on these matters, I'm from Wisconsin!"
Bill was right. I've been searching for a better cheesecake to this day . . . by the old waistline, you might suppose I'd found it by now . . .
I should have known better than to ..... ?
please don't say fall in love?
I have no idea what a cheescake is, but I think I can safely assume it's a high calorie food because that's how I feel about these things, although mostly I don't really care that much!
So I'll get back on terms with chess, once my life is ruined again?
As for the best cheescake, keep looking! you'll find your dream cheescake and that will mess up your game ;)
The idea is: I can't really force myself into anything! and that's the problem, dude!!!
Thanks a lot Ladies and Gents for participating :)
You should look at some nice endgames, always think its amazing, when I se the point in a new endgame :)
I will do that... the problem is that there's no time :((
