And never have I been happier being wrong.
Let’s take a look at how today started. A really early lesson and an atrocious mid term (and I mean ATROCIOUS, the kind of mid term that bends you over and…). You’d think a day would be done after a mid term like that.
Well, it wasn’t quite dead yet. Today had a lot left in store for me, in the form of a Euchre tournament. I had signed up for this about 3 weeks ago with a friend of mine we’ll call Tim. Tim is a very good Euchre player, and I… well, I really wanted to play in the tournament. Actually, Tim asked me to be his partner first!
… although I wasn’t his first pick, as his first pick said no.
In any case, the tournament was a blast. Tim and I lost 2 times out of 7 or so games, and we only BARELY got tied for second. I’m not going to go into details, but a little play error against the team that needed 8 points granted them the 8 points needed to take the lead, when they shouldn’t have.
Although I am still a little angsty about it, I really, really enjoyed myself. Tim and I will be doing that again next semester if that Tournament is happening again then.
So not only did I get a VERY close second(I’m talking 1 point here!), but I went to a friend’s house afterwards, who also happened to be the person who won the tournament. His partner tagged along too.
At his house, we decided that it would be awesome if the 3 of us scrounged up his Magic cards, stuffed a bunch of them together, and made some decks so we could play some multiplayer.
Well, out of 3 games we played, guess who won 2 of them?
My deck didn’t even have a proper win condition. All I did was beat people to death with little pests and otherwise attempt to control the field.
I’m so proud of myself. 😀
Now I’m home, and I feel great. The mid term doesn’t even bug me anymore, and I think I’ll be alright.
I am not Mrs. Cleo.
Thank GOD for that.
