day 1999 – gamblers corner

hitting up grand villa because i felt the need to earn the money i lost back on new years eve. since the craps table wasn’t open when i arrived, i gave black jack table a shot. most of my time was spent at there and it treated me well. once i won back the fifty, i knew that was the time to cash out and call it a day. the rest of the day was spent rather inactive just catching up on some work before taking me dad out to dinesty for a belated birthday dinner

day 1371 – all business 

landed in vegas new york new york for my first ever business trip. travelling with my manager is a scary thought, but after having lunch and an afternoon with him, he’s actually a pretty cool guy. tonight is the only free time i will have. i didn’t expect the fitness centre hours to be so lame, so i explored and chilled around the hotel. i had mixed feelings all the way here because i didn’t want to leave my comfort zone and feel so alone, but i’m going to make the best of it and get ready to work

day 788 – rooftop

grand villa casino doesn’t know too shabby when viewed from the rooftop parking lot. i have never been inside the casino before even though i stopped by the parkade handful of times. the parkade is quite large and judging by the amount of cars parked, there must be a lot of gamblers inside. not a big fan of casinos because there’s just no winning against dealers or slot machines and i don’t have the extra moola to donate to casinos

day 590 – spin at river rock

what would i do after friday night training on friday the 13th?? testing out my luck at the casino but it is heart stakingly painful to watch as my stack of chips depletes. i am holding onto my stack of chips and playing it carefully, thinking i make strategic wagers that will win everything back. i didn’t break even but at least i went in with a set amount that i would bet so i knowing i can walk out without breaking my bank

day 60 – numero sixty!!

made it over 100000 chips on myvegas for the first time, sadly it was very short lived and dipped back down to five digits. i guess all gambling slots machines and tables are made alike where you can never win against dealers and casinos. when will i go on a streak of good spins and win some??
