Yesterday it was past 6:00 PM and I had not played my game for the day. I was really tired from lack of sleep the night before due to a bad case of "go head", and didn't feel like playing at all. I considered playing two games the next day to make up for it, but I thought that I should play anyway because one game a day is not that big a deal. If I can't keep that small a commitment, then what kind of a go player am I? Can I say I am studying with any seriousness if I can't play a game a day?
I put up a game in the EGR and was hoping to play slowly, but got sucked into a fast pace again as I have so many times in the past. I guess part of the problem was that I really wanted the game to be done so I could say I had played it. I ended up resigning after failing to kill some stones that had invaded my center. I squeezed them first, and it was looking promising. A friend messaged me afterward and reminded me to slow down in the future. He pointed out that I had played 40 stones in two minutes at one point during the game.
I got caught speeding.... "But officer, I had no idea I was going that fast."
