Not being able to play online poker in the States really sucks. It's just so fucking illogical I can't wrap my head around it (I can wrap my head around greed, I guess I choose not to). But, here I am, spending a month in the good ol' US of A and bored out of my mind.
I was able to do a few cool things: I signed up at a gym which is now close to where I live in Indy. It's 100,000 square feet, a couple basketball courts, a couple pools, a rock climbing wall, bunch of other stuff. I got some swimming lessons. I got some yoga lessons (I got pretty lucky and found someone cool to come to my house and teach me, I highly recommend it, I think most people that just go do yoga right off the bat without individual instruction probably do stuff very wrong, which is dangerous for your body). I played basketball a couple times a week. I further taught myself kettlebells. Now that summer is coming to an end, I'll probably start bulking. This always winds up being a fitness blog.
I interviewed Greg Merson for Leggocast #22
. I finished some other video stuff (final part of my heads up series against klink, hh review video from a few years ago). We're running a Mojito Tuesday
promotion to get $100 off a year subscription to Leggo-- might as well buy that now before stuff gets more serious in the future, promotion ends this upcoming Tuesday.
I grinded some TV. I'm caught up on Breaking Bad and Newsroom and just started watching Twin Peaks since I found it on Netflix. It's been that kind of month. I ate a lot of freeze pops. I read a few books (just started Eiger Dreams, which is just a collection of short climbing stories from Krakauer). I questioned my existence. I was generally unproductive.
Tomorrow I'm going up to Toronto to play some poker. I'm not sure how long I'll be up there. I'm gonna try to make 100k. Should be TOO hard if I'm up there for 6 or 8 weeks. Maybe I'll just win a tournament. I'm due.
