|Playing at Chess Club, Monday Nights!|
I have rarely played chess with people outside of my father, who taught me. My parents divorced when I was five, but on the weekends when I was with my dad, I would march into his room with the wooden chess set and slam it down on his legs to wake him up to play with me. Now when I go home for the holidays, playing chess has become an expression of our love. It may not appear to an expression of bonding, because we make $5 bets for each game and smack talk/sing/hum/find any kind of distraction to throw each other mentally off, but it is our way of communicating. Aside from chess, I really love playing sports and this year I got involved with Lewis & Clark's Ultimate Frisbee Team.
Until next time,
