I recently paid off my rediculously high credit card balances and student loan debt that I accumulated while in college. It feels very liberating to have accomplished this at such a young age. Most of my 23 year old friends are sinking deeper and deeper into debt while still looking for jobs. I have been fortunate enough to get a sort of 'head start' on them. I also shipped around 5k to my parents for their help paying for room and board and what not from my college days, which also made me feel good and a bit more like an adult. I recently withdrew all my money from UB and Full Tilt. I am in a weird place, coming off of my biggest down swing of my life, (30+) buy-ins, and am taking some time off to decide how I am going to proceed with poker. I am obviously profitable, however I have some personal management issues I need to work out and I think some time away from the tables to clear my head will do me good. I am thinking about starting up a staking deal with a good friend of mine which may be plus ev for me, both mentally and monitarily. Until next time.....don't get captured.
Out celebrating with some old friends from high school....
