I suck at Chess

chess, gaming



Why am I up? Well. I got up to feed the cats (you see, they walk all over you, scratch at the bed, and make noise (right beside your head) in the morning until they are fed. we are so pwned) so I decided to stay up. Iโ€™m burning a chess CD. I play online with a few buddies who constantly use me as a chess punching bag. I always miss something. I donโ€™t focus power. I think Iโ€™ve gamed too much and now serious concentration has become an issue. Or maybe I just rush things. Or maybe I just suck at chess. Strange โ€” it is the one game, maybe for ultra geeky reasons, I would like to be good at. One day perhaps. I really think I just rush my turns and donโ€™t properly scan the whole board and end up moving a piece to a bonehead position. If I get behind one or two pieces it is often game over. Hmppt. Chessmasters can charge 200 an hour to teach you chess!

Term one is winding down at Sheridan. So many projects to do. Gah. Web. Client. Video. Director. Client CD. Client Video? Iโ€™ll post some more stuff as it becomes available. (likely the day after it is due :P) It seems there is a decent break from school in December. Iโ€™m sure I will need it.

B. and I looked at something similar to a Bowflex yesterday. The staff at Fitness Depot were very helpful. The price range is dramatic. From 850 to thousands. Gulp. It would be nice to do some Cardio at home. Iโ€™ve sadly become quite the physical slacker. Weโ€™ll see.
