The interview included questions such as “Do you do heroin,” “What’s your favorite color,” and “Do you have any heroin? I didn’t know what it would lead to in life, and I didn’t much care.I found the classes really interesting, and that’s much more than I can say for almost any other class I’d taken, ever. I developed some pretty bad study habits early in life.For now, they’ll look great with jeans and a white shirt like Jenna, and in the summer they’ll go great with bare legs and pretty much any outfit – brown is a colour that goes with everything!It’s also a great leg-lengthening shade, especially when your legs are naturally tanned (don’t let us down, British summer!I moved up from Sn G’s to s, and then to s. I continued to have great results, and started to gain a tiny bit of recognition in the SNG community.I now had a group of poker friends, most of whom I’d met on 2 2 and interacted with almost exclusively online. I helped them learn Sn G’s and they both progressed fairly quickly.
The other big post will be finished soon, and I’ll post it sometime in the next week, in one or two parts. I was asked by many people how I got started in poker, or how I made the decision to drop out of school to play full time.My Mom later told me “Maybe I should’ve made you work harder, but you were always getting A’s.” I managed to get through middle school and high school doing almost no work, though towards the end my GPA suffered (I’m fairly certain my Chemistry teacher changed her grading system to 50/50 tests/homework from 90/10 because she hated me for not doing a single homework assignment all of first semester).I don’t know what it is about me, but I never was interested enough in something to do my homework or to study.Caroline asked one of our mutual friends from the class if he knew anyone who needed a place to live the next year.I was always leaving things to the last minute, and this time my procrastination was handsomely rewarded.I was studying and playing around the clock (though mostly playing… Poker was like a video game, an awesome video game, and I was focused on building my bankroll, my ROI, and the stakes that I could beat. I like people, sure, but too long in a crowded environment with no chance to get away is debilitating. ) I met Caroline through an Improv class that I took my freshman year.I spent most of my nights at my desk, next to my bed, above my 6″ high carpet of dirty laundry, in my crowded little room. She was much better than me, but to be fair, she’d done Improv in high school. Her and Shannon were going to live with a third girl who ended up backing out.I was good at tests, and I just relied on that to make it through. Actually, it was: There were fewer homework assignments and more tests, and most of my teachers didn’t know whether I was in class or not.So, here I was in college with a new passion, little need to go to class, and my own happy place (my room).Hey Guys, So, I told those who follow me on Twitter (@philgalfond) that I was working on a long post and wondering whether I should chop it up into two pieces or not. Most said just post it whole, and I was planning on doing that.When I got to this section of my post, it felt different. I decided to pull it completely out, expand on it, and make it it’s own post.
