I practiced so hard only to lose in the dumbest way possible against Djem5 of team Russia. He did a forward 2 gate twice, and that was how I lost the bo3 series in 10 minutes. I don't even want to talk about it. My sleep schedule has been messed up. I ended up waking at 3:30 AM, so I thought I could stay awake until 1 PM with no problems. I ended up being very sleep deprived by that time though. Afterwards, I ended up sleeping for 9 hours. So yah, not too thrilled, and apparently I have a lot of work to do so there's that.
Not exactly the writeup I had in mind, but I promised myself I'd do this. That's funny how competition can bring emotions of extremes and winning at that nation league was so important to me. Really though, I was either going to come out feeling great or horrible. Whenever I lose I feel like I failed my team, which itself failed because we got 0-5'd vs. Russia. I always knew we didn't really have strong players, so I'm kind of bummed that we're just one of those laughing stock teams that doesn't quite get to the top 4. I would like some heartwarming conclusion but I can't really think of one now. Thanks for reading and until next time.
