What I have learned thus far...
I never knew it was possible to combine work, love and war all within the confines of a digital checkered board. Never thought it possible to make friends while they're busy kicking your butt. (I never knew that I could laugh at my own dumb mistakes in the middle of it either. )And I never thought I'd see the day when I was dumb enough to think that I was good enough to take on 33 different people whose very rank should have told me that it was suicide to challenge them. But I have. Such things are possible! And it is due to the wonder of chess.com.
Therefore, I'd like to take moment to thank the makers of chess.com for creating such a unique and amazing site. Thank you chess.com. I have never hated myself and loved a game so much before, but because of you I have learned how to do so and still have a good time (even at the bottom of the totem pole).
P.S. I'd also like to thank the one guy who introduced me to this world of addictive madness: Stephen. Thanks pal! You're the greatest!!!
