Hello everyone, so I don't have a lot of time right now, so I am typing what I see fit. So for me, it is my Sophomore year and I am really losing time for chess. It is just too much for me. So, with that said, I am going into a state of inactivity ex...Read more »

Hi everyone, thanks for viewing my profile. Now a bit about myself, I'm am a 16 year old boy. I found this website thanks to my old math teacher. My avatar is my 2 years 5 month, Buster, it is currently a picture of him at 8 weeks. I play 3 main sports: golf, basketball, and baseball. I have no OTB rating but thinking about getting one. Some of my friends on this site are, White_Fang3, Luidefunes, MarshBaby, Kingdon_Hearts, rockongirl, i-eat-guini-pigs, and BigFatDaddy55. I accept most friend requests unless you are just looking to get another friend. I will not accept game challenges unless my total amount of games that are in progress is below 40. This will now sorta become like a journal that I will (try to) update weekly ;)
Saturday 10/25/14: First entry... High school is quite a bit different than middle school in athetics being a lot more serious, not that's a bad thing. Started a chess club, really slow at the moment...Any suggestions to get it going is highly appreciated (PM me) :D I also had my first cup of coffee; all I can say is that I will be a coffeeholic :D That's all that has really happened so far. Also, testing OS X Yosemite and all I can say is that I love it (2009 MacBook) Will update.
Game of the week:
Thanks for reading,
Wow, Halloween was a rush... Ran out of candy, had to turn away a few kids :( Anyways, happy weekend! Nothing happened much over this week that I feel like sharing. Basketball conditioning is over, tryouts on the 17th, I hope I make it. Chess rating over 1200 (again). Started volleyball in PE, it hurts :( That's all this week.
Have a good weekend,
11/30/14: Long time no post, sports, no internet and acedemics is hurting my time here. Anyways, inteernet has been repaired and I plan on being more active. I am kinda low on games on the moment (5), so I am open to challenges at the moment if you're up for a game. That's basically it.
A game I rather enjoyed:
Hello. Christmas is over all the decorations are down, school is already putting the weight of the world on my shoulders. 2 projects already :( Basketball is doing alright, 1-1 so far. Golf is coming up and I am so excited :D Also v3 is out to all premium mebers if you haven't noticed. Click on the button on the very bottom of the page that says "Try the new Chess.com!"
Hello. I just turned 15 on sunday. Anyways, I will be very busy until the end of the school year (June 6) due to an overload of work and sports (basketball and golf). I will try to squeeze in time, but it will likely be under 30 minutes every two days. I will make my moves through the mobile app, so if you want to play a game, I'm all for it.
See you around,
Happy sunday! Anyways, I am really burnt out with sports and homework, it sucks so bad :( I hope it make it ;) Anyways, I am aiming for 1300 in live standard. A rather nice game I played:
3/22/15: Long time no post...Nothing much as really happened sinve my last post. Basketball ended, golf started, and I am starting to umpire Little League games for my community service hours. (40 needed to graduate.) I am still trying to break 1300 in Live standard, but I am hovering around 1260. Closer and closer to testing. I cannot believe it is almost April already.
Have a nice day,
Thanks for viewing,
