Okey dokey...I've managed to stick to my plans so far without too much trouble. The main problem for me right now is lack of sleep, for some reason I've been getting maybe 5 hours a night...and thats just not going to do it. I'm going to have to make an effort to get more sleep.
In other news, I've signed up to play in the guelph winter pro am! My first OTB tournament experience...and yes I'm very nervous.
Since chess.com has recently decided to include fees I've purchased a year's subscription at redhotpawn.com. It's an older correspondence site, the people are a little more serious and the clans and tournaments are much more refined. I'll still be blogging here at chess.com and continue to be active in the forums though, the community is nice here :)
