groove, you're 24, right?
when those 6 months are over and (to be honest) I assume nothing dramatically will have changed by then, why don't you just try both dominos (and maybe grad. school along with it) and tennis?
when you can earn so much money at dominos to getting past more than one whole year with the savings, it should be easy to make a living without any savings for a bunch of years.
a lot of young guns whose parents actually care and don't dream have a daily timetable such as:
5:00 am getting up
5:30 am breakfast
6:30 am training
8:30 am school
12:00 lunch break
1:00 pm school
4:30 pm training
6:30 pm dinner
8:00 pm gym / massage
10:00 pm sleep
so just try to shift some things, replace some school and sleep time with work and give it a try!?!
you have absolutely nothing to lose as far as i know from this board...
I mean, this is all fine and good in theory. But 99.9% of the kids who do this schedule are burnt out by 17. Trust me. I know them, I've seen them, I am one of them. Besides, this only allows for 7 hours of sleep.
My schedule, back when I was doing Dominos, my schedule was:
10 AM- wake up, shower, eat, stretch, get ready to play
12 PM- 2:30 PM- On court work
2:30-3, stretch, drink fluids, drive to gym
5:00 PM to 2 AM- Dominos
And this is not even with school. There are simply not enough hours in the day. You get very easily burnt out with such a schedule, and I did. it is impossible to work a job and train full time, let alone do school as well. Either I can do school and tennis, I can do work and school, or I can do tennis and some other job like a coaching job where i can also train, which is where I am trying to go. This is all assuming 24 hours in a day. The only way to do all 3 is to reduce your sleep, which will negatively impact all 3.
Oh my god ... i just read this whole thread ... 4 hours and a half of reading this shit ... Johnny mid-way through this thread i was like ... maaan , this guy is a complete GOD. When all the drama kicked in , my balls shrinked to the size of olives and all the hero image flew away. This is officially the best thread in MTF.
JG is our hero ! ... but a total mug in real life.
Whatever! Which is your next tournament ? I missed so much by not reading this thread only knowing it's existance !
You really read the entire thread?
Don't forget the prologue thread: Groove Dude cheering thread
I am neither a God nor a mug. I am merely a human man with both godlike and muglike qualities, just like everyone else.
