      I just quit my psychology course I started in september. I'll go traveling in late January thus I have 2 months where I'll squeeze in alot of poker. I've been playing poker full time for ~4 years, until just recently when I tried out studying. The course I tried out gave me all I wanted, so quitting now seems perfectly fine. (Wanted to test the waters, se how the academic lifestyle was etc)

      I am Swedish and 24 years old. On my spare time I wakeboard when the season is up (cable wakeboard), wall climb and play music. I also do party a lot. I'm playing 5-handed cash game on a swedish network, svenska spel, in the range of NL€100-200. My playing style is quite explo rather than GTO, mainly because I can't be arsed. I've had a few blogs here before but nothing too serious. Did a couple of instructional video series for the swedish community back in the day, mainly for tournaments as I started of playing MTTs.

      I'll start of with goals for the first month, until 15th Dec:

        - Practice drum technique 10 min/day (crash learning as I'll play drums in a band in december)
        - Finish of my music production course I'm taking
        - Progress with the running for the mile (european) on new years (Shin splints)
        - Start watching poker videos again (like... a year ago I last did?)
        - Finish applications of NL hold'em once and for all
        - Learn more neat poker odds/math in certain situations (Don't even know exact % flush draw turn>river after 4 years of fulltime, lol)
        - Play live a couple of times
        - Start playing on a tracked site here, to gain video access
        - Play MTTs on sundays and not be too hungover (PLEASE, note to self)

      Poker isn't as fun as it once was and I'm actually looking for what's next in life. But as I've now got two months with nothing planned (yet) I figured I might as well push me a bit with a blog, lets see if it does the trick!

      I'm right now on antibiotics for a tonsillitis (right english word for halsfluss? sweden help me out?), so until I'm feeling better I'll just stick to taking it abit easier and just play, rather than doing goal-stuff. Should just be 1-2 more days though.

      Yes box. Tonsillitis är väl egentligen den korrekta medicinska termen även på svenska - eller åtminstone det som står i din journal. Halsfluss är något gammalt språkfossil som inte riktigt längre förklarar så bra som det antagligen gjorde en gång i tiden.

      Today I've dropped 9 BI's, largest loss in one day for a looong time. A couple of them is from me being sick though, so I've laid my own bed in some regard :f_mad:

      Gonna round it up with some aspirin, a couple of tournaments in the sofa and burn through true detective season 2! Might just go all crazy and pop popcorn as well :s_biggrin:

      Managed to hit a final table in a tourney yesterday, only to bust in 7th for ~1.5 of my normal BI's. But got through a few true detective episodes. Wow, what a series.

      Today I'm feeling slightly better in my throat, so I'll do some drum exercises at least. And play some cards as well!

      I can't remember really. But a year? A year and a half? Was easier 4 years ago though! (But extremely doable today as well, so just go for the pwn!)

      Haha yeah it's not good !
      Are you switching to tournaments or just a weekend thing ? I'd assume cash games are a more steady income and hopefully you bink something on a Sunday 😃

      Sorry, just noticed the spoiler haha!

      Went to the casino yesterday and may I just say wow, I'm very good at texas. I realized on my way home that lack of positive feedback might be one of the key factors driving me away from the game. Poker is such a unique experience to all so giving credit for truly great plays is a very diffuse thing to do. You never know the whole story, what actually were thought aso. I want to give myself a big pat on the back though. Anyhow, lost ~3 Bi's there and I'm now down a shitload for the week.

      Gonna get in some good ol' free money friday grind today, also squeeze in cleaning my appartement and some other tasks, before heading for a date later on tonight!

      Just Sundays yeah :) cash is way more steady, but giving myself a chance to win the lottery once a week isn't that bad though!

      Last nights date was superb. Today I'm gonna play poker and stay sober so that I finally can hit a big score in a tourney on a sunday. It's coming tomorrow, I can feel it.

      Anyway, god ol' cg-grind tonight, hope that my doomswitch has been turned off.

      Woke up, finished last episode of true detective. Can highly recommend! (Season 2 at least) Now I've gone through a nice breakfast and starting to feel awake. Good stuff. My tourney schedule starts at around 1600 so until then I'll do some lighter workout (after being sick), prep food for the night, do my drum practice and maybe even force myself to meditate for a while before the grinds sets off. Still having a strangely good feeling about tonight. Knock on wood.

      I watched the first season of that true detective and thought it was very good once i got over the guys accent. Is season 2 as good ?

      i'll take 1% either way..... hahaha :f_thumbsup:

      (edit) This was intended as a joke, not a serious request.
