A Hard Day's Night

Jul 29, 2009, 10:18 PM |

I've had the oddest week ever.  Too many fluke circumstances and happenstance situations.  I swear I should write a book.  There have been 2 things that have managed to keep me calm...running and playing chess.  Ironically I was thinking up scenarios in my head while I did my run today.  Weird, yet awesome.

I'm still on my loosing streak (I'm hoping to hold the record on chess.com, ha ha) however I've noticed that my games have been getting better.  I played an opponent tonight and it was a good game.  He was the first person that I'd seriously played about a week ago.  Needless to say that first game was a hard loss for me becasue it made me realize that I am an erratic and impulsive chess player.  Tonight however, I've managed to hold my own for a duration of the match.  I'd been put into mate and hadn't even noticed it because I was focusing heavily on the move that I thought would have brought me to victory.

Well, technically I have one day until this move.  Hopefully by then my world will be somewhat "normal"????  I'm not sure if I'll be able to play again today or for when I'll next have access to internet so....

catch ya later!
