After a long hiatus, I'm back into teaching and playing Go. You may ask why I left in the first place. I went to Korea, studied at a professional dojo, wrote 4 books on Go, and looked like I was going to be playing and teaching Go for awhile.
|I miss the books.|
Well, life got in the way.
Honestly, I dropped the game because it was more like a job than a game. I'm never going to be professional, nor would I want to be honestly. So when the game felt like a chore, when studying was no longer exciting, I just plain stopped. I had gotten a position as a middle school Math/Science teacher, and I just dropped Go. I knew it was time to do something else when losing started to feel excessively bad. What made me come back?
I'm leaving for China in August.
|Korea was a blats and I'm sure China will be too.|
There's no way I'm going to be in China and not play. So I decided I needed to get back in shape before I go. Also, it's summer vacation, and Go is always an excellent hobby. So, I decided to start a Twitch account and stream. I'll play teaching games, do game reviews, go over joseki, and try to get back into the game in general. I haven't seen to have gone down in skill, so this should be interesting.
My twitch channel is: http://www.twitch.tv/yithril/
I will archive my exploits on Youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/user/sundaygolessons
You can catch me playing on Tygem or KGS on my handle which is, you guessed it, yithril.
