So two nights ago I finally got over the hump and won a poker tournament. After a bunch of dissapointing final table finishes online (2nd, 3rd, and two 5th place finishes, along with countless in the money/bubble finishes), I took one down after being shortstacked much of the money period. 18 people were paid (113 entrants), and I was around 14th when we got down to the final 2 tables. At 15 people left, I was still 14th. I fought my way to the final table where I came in as the 8th place stack but picked my spots to steal and then picked off a short stack to move up, and from there it was uphill. Caught an unreal rush of cards, and an even more unreal streak of no action with those cards. When it got down to heads up I was outchipped 3-1 but battled and took it down, with the final hand me calling his all in (I had 120k, he had 50k) with A2. He flips up Q3 and it was over. $154 payday. Not nearly my biggest win but much needed cash.
I downloaded a leaked version of the new Tool album 10,000 Days. It's amazing as expected.
Let's see...what else...um...Shila's parents have been gone for the last month and a half so it's been plenty of chillin and parties over there. Thankfully that is coming to an end. She's gotten quite tired of it and it's stressed her out plenty. It's wonderful to hang over there whenever, but the endless responsibilities she has to take on stress her out endlessly and I'll be happy to see that part go. My bank account is dwindling plenty. I need money and so I'm basically restricted to DJ jobs and whatever else I can find as this internship will take up 2 days a week, which won't allow me to get a real job. That's okay though, because it's really an investment in my future. I want a job at A Band Apart so badly. We'll see how I like it but the first impression is it looks awesome.
That's it for now I guess. Just wanted to update briefly.
