Sorry if this thread has been dead, I might just close it fwiw but not quite ready to do that yet

Been going thru the same emotional swings for 2 years. Work is comfortable okay but by no means printing it. Poker is a good side income but I don't really see it as a viable long term option. Family is pushing me to do grad school for "transferable" skills better job prospects etc but I have no clear plan of what I want in life...

If you figure out how to figure it out please lmk

Hope you figure out what you want to do. I'm sure if you can smash poker you'll be successful in other walks of life if thats the way you decide to go

Re: blakkman08 2k15 spazzaments

Thx for the replies guys

I ve randomly gotten on a plane to see my old Malta roommate in Amsterdam and we went to the gay pride fest all around the city, got ridiculously smashed and had a good time then did some hangover pokerments today and both own peanuts considering it's Sunday but both won back our drinks from yday so can't hurt. Flying back tomorrow then I ll be in Vienna midweek and gonna book flights to Barcelona for the ept plus holiday soon as well. Planning to possibly go to Malta after wsope berlin and grind these too and then gonna book a flight from Malta to New Zealand and do some proper traveling for a few months, touring nz and making the jump to Aussie for the Aussie millions in January. Figured If I have no clue what to do I might as well try to enjoy myself so really looking forward to all of those. I ll play a lot more live poker this year as I actually enjoy leaving the house once in a while so yea for the next few months. No clue what comes after that, maybe I ll refuel my passion for the game maybe I ll find some inapiration along the way maybe I ll go busto and be forced to do sth entirely else by necessity but I m looking forward to whatever I ll end up experiencing and I m sure in the end it'll have been worth it.

Also, ead party and ead 888

For someone struggling to figure out what they want to do with themselves sounds like you've got a great fkn plan for the next few months! Enjoy it and throw some traveling updates in here if you can. Always wanted to visit NZ so would be cool to see some pics

If you do any travelling outside Melb for the AM in Jan, feel free to hit me up - I'm in a place called Byron Bay up on the coast towards the Queensland border.

Keep the thread and pokers going for the fans!

In all seriousness, I agree with what Everest said maybe take a month off and come back to love it again or live donkaments for a change of pace.

Re: blakkman08 2k15 spazzaments

Spent two days in Vienna meeting two potential roommates/ hanging out with a ton of heroes and had an amazing time. Pretty likely I ll move here in the near future which would mean this thread stays alove for another couple years at least. Had a blast, love the city and all the ppl I got to hang out with. Gave myself time till the weekend to fig out all the details and will prob update then. Ept Barca and the New Zealand trip are deffo happening, possibly will have to postpone the Australia part to a future date if I decide to love here. Apparently meeting new people can be fun who woulda thought

The thought alone gives me severe palpitations. (of both meeting new people and having fun)
