Procrastination = Blogs
Is it me or are the boxes in my new place multiplying? Almost 1/2 of the house is unpacked and in it's proper place. The other half just sits there as I stare at them wishing I could wrinkle my nose like Samantha and they'd disappear. Ugh. Moving sucks. Although I am quite happy and content in my new surroundings. The way the light enters the house makes the energy uplifting and welcoming. Much unlike the old place where there never seemed to be any rays of light creeping in through the windows resembling something like a hidden cave.
Right now it seems as though everything is happening as it should with my life. Maybe not as fast as I would like, but I must remind myself patience is a virtue. If I can apply that to when I play poker every time, why can't I do that with my career?? Again I'm bound from saying too much about what's coming up. Within the next few days I'll be able to be more open about everything, including the blog I've been saving for the right time on what happened last year and why I've been missing. And to be honest I didn't realize anyone read my blogs except for my mom and my best friend Alex. I would love to hear feedback from friends that read this blog. Tell me what you'd like me to be writing about as well. Believe me these days I'd much rather write a blog than unpack these menacing boxes.
Friday I took a break from unpacking and decided to head down to Caesar's Palace where the NBC National Heads Up was being held. It was my first time being back around poker friends with the exception of Borgata in January. Many people whom I haven't seen since November last year. I felt that this was the best time, if any to get back into my groove. And what better place to say hello to everyone all at once, right? Well maybe the draw party at Pure, but I opted not to go to the night before as I'm trying my best to avoid clubs and partying too much. I'm staying focused and have my eye on the prize.
I walked into the poker room and my heart began to ache from missing poker so much. I saw so many friends and couldn't help but notice the butterflies in my stomach from the excitement. People that I not just adore but have admired for years were coming up to me saying hello and genuinely asking how I've been. It felt so right to be back and I truly can not wait til the WSOP this summer. 2009 is going to be a huge year just you wait and see! My decsion to not run away from poker was the correct one and I'm so happy that I took the time to make the right choice. For now I will still continue living in Las Vegas and hold off on the move to Vancouver, BC until I feel it's the best option. I will however be back and forth to recharge my batteries whenever I get free time. Yay!
Time to go back to boxes. Only have two days before I leave for Reno with Alex! I'll be playing in Jennifer Harman's charity poker tournament rasing money for the National Kidney Foundation. Lisa Wheeler is running this event so we know it's going to be a fun one. I can't wait! I promise this time you'll be hearing much more from me in my blogs... and this time I mean it!
All I can say is it's good to be back!
