Do you ever have that feeling, when something happens, and you don't know what hit you?

Well, that's how I felt last week Wednesday.

There was an upcoming tournament; a five-minute blitz tournament with seven rounds to be precise. No one had joined yet, so I thought to myself, "Hey, why don't I get this started?"

And I did.

The list for the tournament started to get loaded with people, and the tournament began shortly thereafter.

Winning game after game, I climbed the mountain of standings while others dropped out.

I never even imagined that I would get a medal. But, I did!

Rewarded with a silver medal at that!

I can't believe I almost dropped out.

No one should ever give up hope; because you know that smart mind inside of you? One day it will show.
