One of the top 100 Greatest Accomplishments of My Life

So, I've been spending most of my days lately studying for the upcoming boards I'm taking on Dec 22. It's the most important test of my life thus far. 400 questions of pretty much everything I've learned so far in dental school plus the things they never taught me. Every now and then I take a quick break and play a little game: usually Internet Spades. But, since I'm at my sister-in-law, Becca's, house, my laptop isn't connected to the internet, so I play either Freecell, Hearts, or Spider-Solitaire. I'm not really a HUGE fan of the latter, but whenever I see someone play it, it gets me re-interested. Lately, I've been playing it more often during these breaks, and finally I decided that the easiest level was just too easy. (My record for moves was 89.) Then I tried medium. It was fairly challenging, but I beat it almost every time I played, so I figured, what the heck, let's do HARD! I'd only tried hard once, and my brain started to drip out of my ears and nose, so I stopped. But for whatever reason, I was ready. On my 3rd try, I beat it! In fact, I took a picture of it just to prove it to you. Here it is:

I don't know if 240 moves is good for the hard level, I could have done it in about 6 or 8 less, but I arranged it with the last 4 stacks of each suit piled up with just the Aces left out so they didn't automatically disappear. I wanted to show Kat just so she'd believe me. Anyway, WOOT WOOT!

Dude, I got into a little Spider Solitaire a year ago, usually during my Organizational Behavior class. every time I tried it on Hard I think a nerve on my forehead exploded.

If you are looking for something to do for a break from studying, how about coming up here and helping us with the little darlings. They could use your good storytelling talents.
