When I was younger, I remembering playing chess with my dad and always losing. I didn't play a lot and I was never more than a casual player.
Starting around Thanksgiving of last year, I started playing online a little bit more. I'm somewhere around a 1200 on Chess.com (15/10 time controls), which puts me squarely in the novice realm, but it's something I'm really enjoying. I particularly enjoy watching Youtube videos by John Bartholomew, @Antonio Radic (and his dog!), and @IM_Rosen.
Like many parts of life, it's not about your individual performance but the trajectory of progress. Getting better at something is a far better reward than being good at something, especially when it's a hobby.
