The season premiere of White Collar and the series premiere of Covert Affairs were on tonight... ( Collapse )
I haven't been around much (at all) lately, I know... I was supposed to have a work placement at an academic library - the placement is my last requirement to graduate, and it had to be arranged and my application to graduate in by last week. Then the placement fell through a couple of days before the deadline, so I was freaking out that I wouldn't be able to graduate until next spring, putting me waaaay behind in being able to start looking for a job in the field, move out of my mom's house, etc, etc. Luckily, my program director is awesome and managed to find something for me with a school board literally at the 11th hour! So I'll be in Hamilton for most of August, if any of you folks down there want to hang &hearts
Beyond that, I've been playing a lot of poker (Texas Hold 'Em) the past couple of months. I've been playing in the local amateur league since October as I'm trying to learn as much as possible without risking any money what with the whole "unemployed" thing. My dad and I both entered a $10 50-man tournament at the casino last weekend - again, low risk but very good experience, particularly in playing in that environment, with a professional dealer. I wasn't in the money, but I played pretty well and came in 12th, which I think is pretty decent for my first time there. My cousin who plays higher-stakes poker out West is supposed to be home in Hamilton for a couple of weeks overlapping when I'm there, so hopefully I'll be able to get some coaching while he's down.
