Drive down was fairly easy and I'm now in my new pad all set up. I haven't played/updated since last time as I didn't have my desk to setup my PC on (it was at my sister's house). But now I'm good to go and just played a 2 hour session.
I opened up William Hill Poker to jump on some tables and I needed to deposit via MoneyBookers (damu downswing). For some reason my stars cashout hadn't gone through yet (I did it over a week ago) so I opened up Stars to see what happened and there is no recollection of the withdrawal ever being made even though several days later I checked my Stars account and it was still at the lesser amount it should have been.
Anyway, when I opened stars I saw some fish playing on broken down FR tables so I jumped on and was playing really well. I played a few regs HU when the fish left but they all quit me :-( I jumped on a bunch of other FR tables and usually had 1 HU, 1 SH (broken FR) and 5-6 FR tables. I was definitely focused and enjoying having tableninja by my side. Despite great lengths being tried to attain BetPot for ipoker, I haven't been able to and that is airring my away from iPoker for the minute.
I was playing 200nl and running fairly hot. I made 4 buyins and started to get tired so I quit for the day. I am pretty hungover as I stayed at my sisters last night which is 90 minutes away and we setup the xmas tree and got fairly drunk doing so.
Last weekend I made $4 I think on sports betting (I put $50 on WH for UFC fights). I picked Bisping to take out Miller and he did so easily and also went with Diegao Bramao who won. I had a chunk on TJ Dillashaw aswell but he lost in an upset. This week I'm betting on Machida at nearly 4:1 (he won't win but irresistable odds) and noguiera to take out mir and 2.5:1 or something.
I've started to notice lately that my entire life is fairly polarised. I'm either eating healthy and working out every day or not at all. I really only hang out with very close friends, I don't have many casual aquaintances. I play poker alot and study a lot or not at all. I've always been the same in relationships too. Usually I'm just a 1 girl kinda guy and I'm fully devoted. But lately I've been enjoying seeing multiple people at the same time and even though I like them all just keeping it chilled is really nice.
I've been writing a lot of music since being in the new house. Working a lot on my solo stuff. We've decided in the band that we're going to start focusing on more of a 'rock' outfit instead of so much acoustic stuff. This is mainly because the strongest elements of my chilled acoustic tunes is their lyrics. Musically, they're not incredibly interesting and within a band lyrics often get lost at crappy live venues so people really have no avenue to connect to the music. So we're going to focus on groove based tunes a lot more. Rock/funk/bluesy stuff. I've got a bunch of tunes we're putting together and will have some uploaded by xmas.
My new place is really great. Internet is unlimited and fairly fast. We have a nice view and I can see the Sydney Harbour Bridge from my room (pic below, though it's much nicer IRL). My roommate is cool. I've been cooking a bunch of meals lately and it's a fun way to save money.
No graph today (It's the same as last time but +700 hands and $770).
