Over the past month or two I have been at a pretty hard time in my life. My parents really will never accept me playing poker as any form of job and it comes down to my family having a bad past with "gambling" in general. They think I am going down a bad road and I have literally tried everything to prove otherwise. It came down to a decision I had to make on whether or not I go back to college this year. If I chose to go on this Vegas trip I would have no cosigner for my loan that I need to go back to school. So last night I had to make a hard decision and put this trip on hold even after booking the flight to show my parents that school really is more important to me although playing poker is still very important to me.
We have come to a compromise where I won't be going on this trip and I have to find a summer part time job even if that means working 1 day a week but, they would continue to allow me to play poker. So tomorrow I am going out to buy my own internet connection (since the reason I've had such low volume this past month is because my internet is completely unreliable at this point) and really start hitting the tables hard again.
