Disappointing (But Putting a Positive Spin) Thoughts

The time right now is 10:17pm.
And I'm at home, not at SVGL.
Around 8pm, my ride got a text saying that his girlfriend's mother passed out and was admitted to Mercy South Sac. We pondered for a bit before deciding the right thing to do - take care of the most important business.

I'm not really disappointed because shit does happen. I mean, if something happened to my family member and they needed me there, I would of been gone in a flash. Anyways, I took a lot when it came to today.
  1. I got my feet wet in the wonderful world of competitive MT. I've been waiting around to push to the next level, and this was just a small start. While I didn't get actual tournament experience, I did manage to get in some pre-tournament battles, which helped me get a feel to what to expect. I also got some footage of pre-tournament battles, which I'll put up sometime this weekend.
  2. With the two battles that me and my partner were in, I was hanging around with the S-class cars, and for me that's a moral victory. If I know that I can hang with the big boys, all I need to work on is pushing through and then holding them off.
  3. I didn't have to bug Virus about renewing my card when the machines were free and all the cards were taken out. When I left, I was down to one game before renewal, so at least I saved Virus a headache when it came down to that. Props for him hosting this tournament, and for understanding the situation when he gave me back my $8.
  4. Before all of this happened, we went to a Korean BBQ restaurant near SVGL called Beque Korean Grill. It's sort of a high-scale Korean BBQ place, and for the $$ we got a good meal. It's some of the best Korean BBQ that I had since the Sushi Boat in Reno. I know I'll be stopping by there come Fanime, since it's not that far.
  5. This tournament gives me more motivation to start a tournament in Sacramento. But there is a lot of work to be done...more on this on the other blog.
  6. The importance of "Family First." My family lives on this motto, and no matter what, family comes first. When people heard about what had happened, they said "Family First."
Anyways, it was nice seeing you all out there. I hope to see you all sometime soon, until then...I wonder who's going to win it all...

BTW, new header with my car.
