Not expecting any replies or anything but I figured, what the hell do it anyway.

Today I finally broke the $500 in my bankroll limit.

It may not sound like much to you high-fliers and your bankrolls I can barely dream of but I only started with $10 (got $10 free after a little while) playing 50c STT's. It's taken me 6 months of very hard work but I've finally reached what was assumed to be an unachievable goal. This was done without playing any ring games.

Just feeling so happy right now

Nice job!

I started out about 2 months ago with a deposit of 20 euros which is about 26 usd. Iv taken out in total of about 1150usd and my current bankroll is now about 700. But i play above "my level" i think so my BR swings to much and i think il end up broke in the near future if i dont tighten up.

That is pretty solid... I started about two weeks ago on noble poker with 20 bucks. Now i am up to 315. I have been playing mostly SNGs. Both 10 and 20 dollar buy in. Those might be a little high sor my bank role but as of now it seems to be working.. I am hoping i can bust this up to 500 in the next couple of weeks.

315 may not be a lot.. but when you a starving college student it seems pretty good to me.

I started with my $10 on Royal Vegas, and ran it up to $230,000 in 4 hours playing 10-cent SnGs.

Might not seem like a lot of money to some of you, but it pays the bills.

On a serious note I took the free 10$ and turned it into a little over 1200. Prima makes it easy to do. Low buy in tournaments made all the money for me.

I'm not putting anybody all in with AJo UTG in that situation. Any desperate pocket pair is going to bite, and the big stack might even have something good enough to call with that I may be no better than 3-2 against. Then I'm OOTM on nothing but a mediocre hand. No thanks.

However mean your life is, meet it and live it; do not shun it and call it hard names. It is not so bad as you are. It looks poorest when you are richest. The fault-finder will find faults in paradise. Love your life, poor as it is. You may perhaps have some pleasant, thrilling, glorious hours,even in a poor-house. The setting sun is reflected from the windows of the alms-house as brightly as from the rich man's abode; the snow melts before its door as early in the spring. I do not see but a quiet mind may live as contentedly there, and have as cheering thoughts, as in a palace. The town's poor seem to me often to live the most independent lives of any. May be they are simply great enough to receive without misgiving. Most think that they are above being supported by the town; but it often happens that they are not above supporting themselves by dishonest means. which should be more disreputable. Cultivate poverty like a garden herb, like sage. Do not trouble yourself much to get new things, whether clothes or friends, Turn the old, return to them. Things do not change; we change. Sell your clothes and keep your thoughts.
The man who is aware of himself is henceforth independent; and he is never bored, and life is only too short, and he is steeped through and through with profound yet temperate happiness. He alone lives, while other people, slaves of ceremony, let life slip past time in a kind of dream. Once conform, once do what other people do finer than they do it, and a lethargy steals over all the finer nerves and faculties of the soul,He becomes all outer show and inward emptiness; dull, callous, and power leveling,
Joy in living comes from having fine emotions, trusting them, giving them the freedom of a bird in the open. Joy in living can never be assumed as a pose, or put on from the outside as a mask. People who have this joy don not need to talk about it; they radiate it. They just live out their joy and let it splash its sunlight and glo w into other lives as naturally as bird sings.eq2 plat,
We can never get it by working for it directly. It comes, like happiness, to those who are aiming at something higher. It is a byproduct of great, simple living. The joy of living comes from what we put into living, not from what we seek to get from it.ffxi gil,
Years ago, when I started looking for my first job, wise advisers urged, "Barbara, be enthusiastic! Enthusiasm will take you further than any amount of experience."
How right they were. Enthusiastic people can turn a boring drive into an adventure, extra work into opportunity and strangers into friends.

"Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm," wrote Ralph Waldo Emerson. It is the paste that helps you hang in there when the going gets tough. It is the inner voice that whispers, "I can do it!" when others shout, "No, you can't."eve isk,
It took years and years for the early work of Barbara McClintock, a geneticist who won the 1983 Nobel Prize in medicine, to be generally accepted. Yet she didn't let up on her experiments. Work was such a deep pleasure for her that she never thought of stopping.aoc gold,

We are all born with wide-eyed, enthusiastic wonder as anyone knows who has ever seen an infant's delight at the jingle of keys or the scurrying of a beetle.
It is this childlike wonder that gives enthusiastic people such a youthful air, whatever their age. At 90, cellist Pablo Casals would start his day by playing Bach. As the music flowed through his fingers, his stooped shoulders would straighten and joy would reappear in his eyes. Music, for Casals, was an elixir that made life a never ending adventure. As author and poet Samuel Ullman once wrote, "Years wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul."

How do you rediscover the enthusiasm of your childhood? The answer, I believe, lies in the word itself. "Enthusiasm" comes from the Greek and means "God within." And what is God within is but an abiding sense of love -- proper love of self (self-acceptance) and, from that, love of others.

Enthusiastic people also love what they do, regardless of money or title or power. If we cannot do what we love as a full-time career, we can as a part-time avocation, like the head of state who paints, the nun who runs marathons, the executive who handcrafts furniture.age of conan gold,

Elizabeth Layton of Wellsville, Kan, was 68 before she began to draw. This activity ended bouts of depression that had plagued her for at least 30 years, and the quality of her work led one critic to say, "I am tempted to call Layton a genius." Elizabeth has rediscovered her enthusiasm.

We can't afford to waste tears on "might-have-beens." We need to turn the tears into sweat as we go after "what-can-be."
world of warcraft power leveling,
We need to live each moment wholeheartedly, with all our senses -- finding pleasure in the fragrance of a back-yard garden, the crayoned picture of a six-year-old, the enchanting beauty of a rainbow. It is such enthusiastic love of life that puts a sparkle in our eyes, a lilt in our steps and smooths the wrinkles from our souls.
Love Your Life
