This is Takao's blog. I am studying Athetic Training at University of South Florida. New entry comes out everyday(hopefully). Am I ever going to have the day when I have a good command of English just like native- speakers? Hope the day will come to me....
I went to the friend's house yesterday, and played poker first time.(played poker for the first time←correct expression) It was much harder and more complicated than I had thought. I learned a lot of new technical words such as Call, Check, Raise, and so on... It was really new for me. Moreover, in the game, I have to be sensitive in many things. First, needless to say, I have to remember all rules. Secondly, I have to look at all opponents at the same time and to read what they think and what they are trying to do. The hardest thing is to conceal what I think in my face. As a matter of fact, I am really not good at these stuffs.(this stuff) I could not keep the poker face even just a few seconds. (I tried to pretend to have good cards even when I didn't, but I failed.) One of my friends who were sitting on the other side of table and who won the game told me that he could tell exactly what I had thought so easily. Ha-ha. I don't know why, but it's true.
The last thing I have to do is to win. This is all the matter actually in the games. Yes, of course, I lost.... All in all, it was fun and good experience for me. I could have really enjoyed more only if I had won. Ha-ha, that’s not gonna happen.
I am not sure if I have an enough time to hang out with these guys for the rest of this semester because of many college stuff, but I want to do so as much as possible. (I will start Observation hours which is one of the admission requirements for the glad school in a week. I go to the hopstital and work with no salary...I also concern that all classes might be getting much harder than it is now. They all are just introductory portion yet...)
I'll beat the pants off you guys in poker next time!! Oh, my eyes are getting heavy.... I am just going to take a 1 hour nap, and call my girlfriends after napping. I will wake her up!!!! Hey, Get Up!!!
