A great period will start for me soon, one which I can't wait to begin!

I haven't played chess so much lately, my last tournament was somewhere in the middle of May... I was caught with lots of exams at University (don't mean to gloat- but I passed all of them and now-I'm officially in my last year of Uni ).

A difficult task is now to be solved- how to pack a suitcase for 2 months? :))) I will go to the EIWCC in Plovdiv on the 4th of July, then a little vacation in Greece, after that- Olympiad and Turkish League, and I will be back home in September The difficult part about it is that the Olympiad will be held in Norway, Tromsø, where it's more an early spring than a real summer in August.

I've really missed traveling non-stop and playing strong tournaments... I have missed my chess friends, I have missed the tournament atmosphere! I guess you can feel my enthusiasm about the forthcoming months

All in all, I am very optimistic about everything and I am really thankful for the opportunity of having such an amazing life as a chess player!

...dont mean to sound like Cupid, but im soo bored that i have to leave my Bs comment again...haha. (Though i know Natalia's like, "Oh no! Not this stupid user's comment again. Im not interested in any BS opinions. I need to exterminate this user immediately! :x" ) 
..whatever :p 
 
"...don't mean to gloat- but I passed all of them..." 
^ Not the most attractive line. Isnt it?  
Of course you didnt mean to gloat. You just made it sound Sooo easy! 
..like ure playing chess in the morning with one hand, holding giant Econometrics book with the other hand,preparing for afternoon exams. :p 
 
anyway, Congrats! And Best wishes. 
 
Behind great personalities, I believe, some ppl with fans & followers have their own ways of expressing themselves & sayin, 
"Im just like you. 
Im not perfect. 
Thats why u can be my friend(s)..." 
 
Pardon my French(if any) :p
