Some Good News, And Some Bad News (my ratings)

Hey, everyone! It's 11:40-ish PM here in Central Texas, so we will make this brief.  I have some good news and some bad news about my ratings. No, it's not my 1339 daily rating, but I'm glad you asked! Do you take the good news, or the bad news first? I generally take the bad news! 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

THE BAD NEWS IS that my blitz rating is lower than it's been in a while! I'm clearly suffering a slump, or as the cool kids say, "tilt"!

Like, I don't know what's going on. Losing to lower-rated players. I believe it will come back though!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

THE GOOD NEWS IS that I did indeed reach my goal from my last blog, to break my peak of 1830, which I did tonight, with a couple of points to spare!

Now the reality is, that 1832 is my goal ... by the end of the month. So while I do have 18 days to spare, in theory, I could fast from playing and have reached my goal ... however, I also do want to prove that I can retain it, so maybe my goal is not yet accomplished, but hey, who has ever felt bad about peaking!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

That's about it. As I have mentioned, I do have a tournament coming up this weekend. It will be exciting. I might make a post about what I'm thinking about leading up to it, depending on if I feel like it.

Oh, and here is the game. I might annotate it within a day, as I just played it
