Switching up a gear

I made it! Sooooo pleased that I have achieved my goal of making it to 20k, and making it before I got any grey hairs! Been doing some experimentation with a far more aggressive style a very good friend of mine advised me to try, and in one session I was immediately able to reap the rewards. My reads seem watertight, and as for my bluffs, please see below!
The question now is what my next goal should be. My averages are very strong, I managed to double my bankroll in the space of 3 months, and at the moment it really seems that the sky's the (no-)limit. I'm sure I'll settle down quickly, and keep trying to rack up a reliable sample of my play ability, but for this weekend I'm just going to smile and enjoy life to the maximum. I have a reunion with my uni friends tonight, and I'm in the mood for fun.
Here's to summer folks......
