Poker Session

Filed under: General — Vikram @ 20:23

I just had a good round of poker with colleagues and I thought this should be another reason for me to continue my blog. I play poker for the first time in my life. And tell you what!! I enjoyed every bit of it.

I was quite reluctent initially to play, as I have never fancied playing cards or gamble anywhere. It may be because, I did not have the patience to sit in one place with a set of cards for hours and hours together as my friends did in college. Another reason may be (subconsciously) that I was a little afraid of a humiliating defeats in the game of cards that my friends had back in college.

After the session, I thought I did the right thing to pool in. It was indeed a great session. Althought I tried hard to hang in there for as long as I could, but the odds were against me.

Anyways, we did not play for real money. It was just a reason to socialize after work, once a month, which got kicked off today.

I liked it and enjoyed it to the fullest. I hope to continue this enthusiasm for the game in future as well. So, all of those who never played poker, you can learn to play poker here, and even here. Give it a Shot!!!!!!!!

Just to say, I am here

As you can see my last post was ages back and since then I have been lazy or I did not have anything to blog about. I don’t think it is the latter which is keeping me away from blogging. I always wanted to blog about some interesting things that come through my life, but once I am back home I am either lazy or I have had a little to much to drink which leaves me with no mood to blog.

When the next day begins bright, I leave yesterday behind and carry on to encounter new things on a new day. And at the end of the day, I find myself back to the situation that was yesterday.

Another reason which I think keeps me away from blogging is a sense of insecurity to put myself out in public on the internet. This keeps eating my brains out as to who might comment on any kind of stupidity which may exists in the post. I may not find certain things stupid for myself, but I cannot comment on how others would/may/might react.

To start with, I have been trying to quit smoking for a long time now. But I don’t seem to change. I have ended up with heated arguments with dear ones and have failed to live up to someone’s expectation. I just had a cigarette thinking that it is my last one. But like I said earlier, when tomorrow starts, it starts new, and when it ends it back to the same thing. I find myself determined to certain extent to work on a technology that I have never used before and provide respectful results or may even slog to try to find the solution to a problem at work. But why is that I cannot be determined to quit smoking? I ask this question to myself after each cigarette that I smoke and believe me I feel awful. But I am determined to change. But need to know when how and where. It may be soon. I hope!!!!!!

Real Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooon!!!!!!!!
