ok ok ok ok
positivity begets positivity
  • i am still on track for a good year
  • i have a pretty sweet home life
  • my body and spirit are still intact
it is rather frustrating how downswings make you lose perspective. the gambling lifestyle is so unattractive at times. i believe i am going to pass on the wsop ME this year for a few reasons
[-i've lost 20% of my bankroll the past 10 days-my live tournaments results are not very impressive-i just want to go home nearly every day-]
i hate las vegas
i hate live poker
i hate tournaments
i hate responsibility
i hate my decision to come out here
i hate my job

Amendment

The situation isn't quite as one dimensional as the previous post might have implied.
Other contributing factors...
  • poor gambling habits while drinking
  • gastritis being irritated by alcohol
  • there is a history of alcoholism in my family
  • my six pack is disappearing

Drama

So last night I got somewhat pressured into going out drinking on a party bus and ended up getting really drunk and I let this random girl kiss me. I nearly immediately texted my gf the situation and felt terrible [maybe everyone would have been better off if I didn't say anything/I don't really know - honesty is often my downfall]. I fear if the situation ever came up again in the future the only significant way to prevent the past from repeating itself would be to be sober. If I had my wits about me this never would have come close to happening. Hence, from here on out I am going to attempt to live the rest of my life completely sober in order to avoid losing the best thing that has happened to me in years.
vegas is going rather mediocre - I am about even on the trip
sometimes I feel like the luckiest guy on earth - other times I feel like moving to Istanbul and raising sheep

beep beep beep

this wsop trip is losing its lust rather rapidly
i got second in the shootout and ran big pairs into bigger pairs in the 6max and satellite
there is too much alcohol consumption and my cash game results and game selection show accordingly
my skin is dry and my soul is cracking
i felt like just going home last night, but i'd figure it best to sleep on it
well rested and hungry for breakfast i still want to go home
