Every day seems to melt into the next. A seamless transition from session to session. A classic time lapse scene plays in my mind as I recall the past few months; my body sits at the table while I watch from above, my opponents are nothing but a blur of faces.
A force is at work that I haven't felt in some time; not confidence, as I always strive to be confident...something else...something that takes confidence and amplifies it into an aura. A drive to wake each day light as a feather, ready to take out the Incredible Hulk if he happens across your path. There is no grogginess, there is no effort in the daily routine. There is only momentum.
Now I haven't gone on an epic run in the past few months, but things have been working out both on and off the felt. I am stringing wins together and feel very sharp at the tables. As far as results go, I've played 500 hours of cash and 50 hours of tournaments year to date. I can't really explain the effortlessness that comes with momentum but these months have flown by despite a losing January.
As for life off the felt, things couldn't be better. I feel very confident with the direction that I am heading in my investments outside of poker, and the family has never felt stronger.
My opinion on the world economy as a whole has turned fairly pessimistic since my last investment-related post. I haven't sold any of my stocks, but all new money that I have put toward investment has gone straight into defensive, wealth preserving vehicles. Might talk more about it in a future post. I've also been speculating in bitcoin a bit since its recent run up. Can't leave that out in a blog about momentum!

Fun With Math
Mrs. Parmann's supplies project at Somerset Academy - Oakey Campus in Las Vegas, NV
My Students: Do you remember sitting at your desk doing math problems from a text book? Kindergarten students need to be up out of their seats and engaged in math practice that feels more like a game than school work.
I have 47 wonderful Kindergarten students who are very passionate about their learning. They attend a charter school with wonderful parent and community involvement. My students work hard but need more hands on math activities to get them more excited about practicing math without a pencil.
My Project: Kindergarten students learn best with hands on experience and interacting with their fellow classmates. My students actively engage in reading centers and they are ready to start independently practicing in math centers. My students will be able to practice their math skills through fun games where they will not even realize that they are practicing skills they need to master before moving on to the next grade level.
Having fun math games will allow students to actively participate in Kindergarten math skills. Students will be able to use these math games to build mastery without it feeling like classwork. Not only will these games better their understanding for math, but they will build social, good sportsmanship, and team work skills. « hide
My students need math games, including peg number boards, a math lab on CD-ROM, folder games libraries and more, for fun and engaging math practice!
