I honestly feel like it’s been forever since sitting here composing a few thought on paper (now on computer). I’ve been doing my best to keep up with sports, gaming, & life as a whole. This morning, I’m watching a stream showing the analytics of Chess. I must admit that strategy & being cordial goes a long way when it comes to playing or even watching Chess. I will be the best first to say that I’m not the best player at chess. I can watch it all day. However, I tried to play it a few months back, & the experience wasn’t the best. I need to basically watch this & learn. I watched a good amount of the match. The defending champion won the World Championship. It was a tough match, because the challenger was fighting to survive as best as possible. One thing I’ve done wrong is not expand my mind in various aspects. Chess is one of them. Another piece involves reading. I’ve been reading the Bible a lot, but I have been in dire need of reading various books that are a little different beyond the norm for me. I was supposed to visit my friend’s church, but she isn’t attending. I chose not to attend my church following the news share. I’ve found it smart that since I’m sitting around, I can work on having some clothes to wear for the week (laundry). Right now, there are two jobs still pending to hear word about, which I’m really praying to get some worthwhile news over the next few days. It’s amazing that the top chess players in the world are people I haven’t even heard of. I guess you learn something new everyday. There were over 12,000 people watching that chess stream. I’m in negotiation of whether this is a blog or a journal. I’m sensing that it will be a blog, & I’ll do my usual side journal entry, since I haven’t written a genuine journal entry in a few weeks. One thing I’ve realized is that I can’t quit. I’ve constantly written this, & that’s primarily because there are so many days that I’ve just wanted to stop. I’ve been in funks on multiple occasions. It’s human nature of course. However, I don’t like to get discouraged very often. I know for a fact that everything isn’t gonna come together all the time, but when it does, I am definitely gonna embrace & enjoy it for what it’s worth. I really feel like I need to go back to school in order to get myself back on track. That way, I can have something to keep my mind occupied. I have had so much free and idle time that I have been finding things to maintain those pieces that seemed missing in so many words. That mostly comes with the territory. I have been keeping a very positive attitude about life as a whole. It’s the simplest way to get through everything. I just wanted to write this blog since I haven’t written one in quite some time. It’s bad enough one of my friends liked my status about being overdue for a blog. I still have some more titles to work on (and they’re being mentally worked on). I think that I’m gonna give my writing somewhat of a break & work on my favorite blog (year in review). Something tells me that this one is gonna knock the roof off honestly. Might as well be honest right? I will cut this brief blog entry here. I have another journal that I have sitting as a draft, so I wanna make sure that’s not left behind. Until next time, this is BT signing out (and I promise you, the small blogs will be fun, but the YIR will be #BeastMode #guaranteed). Peace out folks. Oh & Happy Holidays to you & yours.
