~4 Month since this post; update.
I am going to be taking some time off from school.
I still find it amazing to go back and read this post and see where I was at less than half a year ago. Things can change so
I've learned a ton and feel I'm wise beyond my years. the most important thing I've lerned though is that i still have SO MUCH to learn.
However, I have actually developed self control, I think. Although I still lose it at times, I have gotten a lot better. I think I can actually be a winning player, but only time will tell.
It is just invaluable to read this post, I still read it at least once a month, and it puts everything into perspective.
I also feel this entire thread is sort of a personal poker journal for me, with other people's thoughts interspersed as well.
Take care, I hope I have become humbler as a person since I wrote this. I know re-reading sure makes me feel humbler.
Honestly, I don't believe you have good self control, for an untirely unrelated reason to the rest of this thread.
Poker isn't going anywhere. Your ability to get a college education is.
It's very hard to leave school and come back. Finish school, play in your spare time, and decide what to do after that.
