Lost 6 games in a row today

I don't know what is wrong with me today but this morning I managed to lose 6 starcraft 2 games in a row. Maybe it's cause I'm rusty or cause I'm sick or something but I am playing so terrible and sloppy. I'm getting supply blocked repeatedly and mis-microing entire battles. I even let my colossi die by themselves in one match where I had a huge advantage. Here I thought being away for a few days would give my mind a chance to relax and when I came back I'd have a fresh perspective, but that doesn't seem like it's happening at all.



 Here is a screenshot of my colossi dying while I was busy worrying about a silly warp prism harrass in my base. I had a huge advantage this game because we both went robo tech and he made sentries with it, and had no colossi out while I already had two. Yet I managed to throw the game away because I'm awesome like that.

Here is me losing another match to a baneling drop that I failed to notice. You can see all my probes disintegrating in green goo.

















Here is me dying to an early zerg attack. Sadly I only built one cannon for defense when it was completely obvious the zerg hadn't even expanded yet.







Here is me dying from an all-in attack from a terran in close positions.








Somehow, against all odds I managed to survive this attack from terran.








I even managed to win the fight with 11 stalkers left over, and all he had left at his base was like 4 marines. So all I had to do was attack and win.







Instead I let him macro up 5,000 banshees. And of course since I failed to scout and build a phoenix or even a stargate, I got completely owned.







After I lost all these matches you can imagine my frustration. So I began to resort to cheese. I won a few games with cheese today, and lost probably even more. I've decided I need to practice some exact build-orders that aren't cheese.
My friend who just got into masters likes to write down the exact build order of every strategy he comes up with, so hopefully I can learn some good builds from him. Plus I need to change my strategies around a bit because I tend to do the same starcraft 2 strategy every game in each match-up.

  11. There will be an influx of fresh meat - it seems as though the starcraft demo is now the "Starcraft II Starter".
