apparently when I ask for work (I am a volunteer writer for a team) I get cock blocked and get told that there are “committed” people who can do the work. Mind you I have explained to my higher ups that I had school, and I could not write until this quarter (which ended). I do one piece for them, following chat logs ensue;
[5/2/2012 8:09:58 AM] person: Your news is not too bad ^^
[5/2/2012 8:10:21 AM] person: I'll jsut remove the sponsors part at the end
[5/2/2012 8:10:52 AM] ME: ok i didnt know if that was allowed or not but decided to input it just incase
[5/2/2012 8:11:09 AM] ME: if you want me to post it i can, just let me know
[5/2/2012 8:12:09 AM] person: You don't have access yet
[5/2/2012 8:12:49 AM] ME: im going to die today lol sleep for a million hours
[5/2/2012 8:16:02 AM] person: lol :D
I wrote a massive article and spent my entire night before class (went to class not sleeping at all) and then he changes everything about the article. essentially makes it shorter than the following stuff above this small paragraph. And says im just gonna remove the small sponsors portion at the end (which isnt much) but instead reformats it, so I am like “ok i think i know what’s happening” so I then chat to see if I can do some more work.

My suspicions were spot on, I got the boot and now there is new meat to do all the work for the editor. I mean i dont truly know the reality of the situation but I absolutely hate it when people string others. Have some goddamn respect and tell me the truth. If my news sucks and you do not need me please tell me. It is better than taking four pages of my work and making it half a page. adghasdgopasdg
Sorry for the rant, need to get that out.
As for the fitness portion, that will not start until my stepmother gets back, She needs motivation to get out to the gym and wants me to do it and also she is spending a week in vegas as I leave for PA in less than an hour and a half. So after our breaks we can start my training regime.
Well since school has ended for me I havent done too much ladder but have gotten some points. Too much work for me but thank you lord for no school anymore :D.
So I have thought this through and for me I feel that there is no better way for me to do the grind to GM than doing the hard way: hard work. I understand that people can get to masters cheesing or just sticking to one thing. I have created a way for me to practice almost in a way like the pros do. I would love to stream but my internet upload speed kinda sucks for now and I dont know if my computer can take it. But for now here is how I am thinking about training this summer: 6 hours sleep 6am-8am: training at the gym, swimming, running etc.
from here i will break the rest of the day into blocks of practice, some will be just ladder, other will focus on areas of my play (macro or die, micro of units, composition) also I will devote time to watch streams and replays. I will take breaks every two hours and take a ten to twenty minute stretch/exercise break. Everytime I take a loss, I will add 5 sit ups to my breaks. (again this is for me to play better but also be healthier)
So in the end that is what I am currently aiming for, but this week will be busy due to the fact i'll be visiting my girlfriend. I really want to ladder but alas I will be enjoying my break.
Also for some awesome reading, I have added these two books to my repertoire: This will keep me occupied for the flight. or sleep T_T
I feel that these two books will actually be beneficial to understanding strategy. I’m going all Miyagi here but I kinda enjoy it
Also watching too much GSTL sad to see TL get knocked down but ZeNEX Life? man, he is being a monster in the League. HOLY....... O.O
That’s all I really have for today, just some housecleaning stuff I guess before I leave for PA (which is very soon).
Thank you for reading this blog and thank you for supporting me! :D
Have Fun and Good Luck
Rank as of now, will play a game maybe and see if I can take a quick win before I go.
Good iniative, but if you ask me you shouldn't let your training regime depend on someone else. Just go by yourself and make it routine (I know a lot of people swear by a training buddy, but I personally don't like the dependancy).
