Good and bad news

The good news is that everything's going very well in the poker world for me. I'm now 6-tabling 25nl with a nice ~16BB/100 winrate which is probably unsustainable, but I've still been running into quite a few beats and still manage to scrape out that winrate so I'm pretty confident. I'm basically playing as many tables as I can so that I stick to a very nitty game and don't get out of line. To put it in perspective, I'm making like $20/hr right now which is fantastic. Unfortunately this is only a couple thousand hands into my ring game foray, but I'm happy anyways.

I've been playing a lot of the $5+R $55 satellites lately as well and have won tickets in every one I've entered this week which is also nice. Unfortunately all the $T I'm using from those hasn't brought great results, but it's mostly due to some bad beats in the games I've been playing and of course I'm fine with that.

I just finished a little $5 HU match with vanq which was also fun. I took it down with some luck (yay AJs>AJo) and I'll be posting a video analysis soon too.

On to the bad news...basically, I'm ready to leave my house. I've obviously been playing a lot of poker lately, and my mother is getting a little frustrated with me, obviously not considering poker a 'job'. I've been meaning to move out for a while now, but I won't be able to do so without either winning more with poker (fat chance making enough to completely support myself), or actually getting a full-time job. I just may have to work a dead-end 9-5'er at sobey's grocery store or whatever, but ideally I'd like to get into some type of construction or trades type job.

Anyways, times are a little tough here around the house but I think we can manage. As soon as I get up off my ass everything will be alright. The first step is always the hardest though; I'm such a procrastinator...
