April 4 – I Really Do Dislike April

Comments off 575 Views0

I’m pretty sure I have said this before, but in case I haven’t, I hate April. April is my brother’s birthday month, and even though this is the 3rd year coming, it still hits me like a ton of fucking bricks. Not even minutes into the first day of the month I already started feeling depressed, and sadly, it is only getting worse. I am doing my best to take care of myself (eating, trying to set a sleep schedule, working out, etc)…but my body isn’t cooperating. It is taking me the better part of 3hrs to fall asleep any given night, and I am getting very restless sleep. Then all day I experience pain (headaches, body stress, etc) which makes day time hours hell. *Sigh* This is why I don’t play all of April when possible.
Speaking of playing, I did try to record a video for 2p2 at 10NL. Sadly, I got really tilty through it and decided to start shoving PF for no reason. (See why I don’t play in April? lol). Maybe I will make another one at some point this week…we shall see. The rest of last week was spent coaching mostly. Also finished up 3 Stox videos (did a review of a 50NL RUSH session that I played and then 2 sweat sessions of students). I am actually really happy with how they turned out. I also plotted my next video. I think I am going to do a video on how economics relate to poker and what we can learn from it. Everything from betsizing to where money comes from in poker. Should be interesting…and I think might help some people be able to visually see some things that could seem very complex.
This week I have 1 video to do, about 10hrs of coaching planned, and then relaxing to try to do. I have also decided that I will probably start writing another book, though not poker related. I want to do a book that is a mix between “Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs” and a self help book….so a motivational book that is written with random samples of my brain and thoughts. I am thinking I will title it “Why You Suck At Life”…but I suppose that might be harsh, so maybe “Why We Suck At Life” would be better =) I just have a bunch of stuff I want to get out, and I time is always a factor in life…so sooner seems better than later.
Past that…everything is fine I guess. I got my plane tickets for my mid-April to mid-May vacation. I am very much looking forward to that…esp seeing my cousins out in Cali and then seeing some college friends after that. And on that note…I am off to get some sleep and up for a day of coaching. Hope all is well!
