10 hour work days are as hard as I thought they would be. I figure today I should just get up at like 6 or 7 so I can study. Ya I told myself I need to be studying 8 hours a day. Oh, also I’m teaching my dad how to play go during my lunch since we work in the same place. I just need him to read a beginner book and then we good. I hope I can have him as a real life study partner so I can practice for this go tournament on the 25.
So far I have I have more time to study but now that I got a job I have to make changes to when I study, sometimes I have to get up early other times I have stay up late. But I am doing whatever it takes to become the best I can be. Even though I’m in school I would leave it all behind to become a pro. I might be willing to drop everything, except I have someone I don’t really want to leave. Well that’s my update. I do this just to keep a journal but I want others to know what goes on in my mind.
I found someone that is willing to teach me for free, which is great except I now have a job that at first was at first only 8 hours a day has now turned to 10 hours 5 days a week starting 5-31-16. The worst part is that on June 25 I plan on going to the Evanston go tournament it’ll be the first time I will have a played a person in real life. I want to win it, so my teacher has assigned me to study life and death and a tesuji problem every week. I plan on improving to 9 kyu as fast as possible. Wish me luck!!
I’m sorry I left, I just was busy and couldn’t update weekly like I said I would. But that means I have some stuff to post now to catch you back up. But the stuff I have to say is great I can’t wait to tell you guys.
Balance is hard for me right now. Being in college I have a duty to do my homework. But, I struggle with it sometimes because ever since I discovered Baduk all I can think about is those beautiful black and white stones being placed on a well balanced goban.
Playing Baduk is like watching art being formed in front of your eyes. Baduk is a dance that two people engage in. It is the ultimate battle of wits. When you play you can feel the power of each play, every stone has a story and certain people can hear them while some can’t. I want to be able to hear the stones when I play, I want to dance with the best of them and, I want to be able to be one of the players that people look at and respect my ability. This is why I play Baduk.
Hi glad you found your way to the The Joseki blog. I am Jeromie Williams and this is my first blog. I wanted to make a blog about Baduk (also called Go or weiqi but for simplicity sake I just say Baduk) it will also have my life as well but I will have it centralized around Baduk.
Now I am new at blogging so I’m not completely use to WordPress so bear with me. The odds of me changing things here are very high so keep that in mind. I am always free to talking with you guys the best thing is to talk to me on twitter that’s where I will respond the quickest. If I make a mistake tell me about I want to become aware of these thing so that you guys can enjoy this blog even more.
