Hello there everyone. I started go in September of 2011. I first got into it after watching the anime 'Hikaru no go' which automatically makes me one of those 'guys who just joined for a minute 'cus of some T.V. show' and while I did join because of an anime I've actually grown to like the game for what it is.
The first place I played go was on kgs and I played about 50 games that first month. By that time I was about 19k and I decided my rival was a guy named 'Sparks' who was 17k. I played about 6 or 7 matches with him and then I forgot about go for a while.
A few months later (December) I was watching Netflix when I saw Hikaru no go under recently watched. That's when I remembered about how much fun go was. Since then I've been playing on kgs almost daily and my goal is to get to 1 dan. I've made many more rivals on kgs recently. Also I've challenged myself to do 1000 tsumego to help me get to my goal to 1d. I am currently 15k and working my way up. I plan to add my tsumego results and rank here weekly for example today.

Wow, I've really let this page go, it's been a little over 2 years since I've updated this.
Since this I've done thousands of tsumego, quit go, started playing again, written
tons of articles and read even more. I got to about 9k at the end of last year
and have been hovering around there, I kind of lost some of my motivation
and have a hard time believing I'll actually be able to be a pro player. I
do think that some day my passion will be reignited for go, and I'll
continue to post the things I'm learning about go here on my blog.
