Battle Report #2 - I did it

So the short term goal has been achieved, I'm in Gold League. What I did is pretty simple, I'm only working on my macro skills right now, so I've been doing the same build over and over on each game. 2 rax FE vs. Protoss and vs. Zerg, 1/1/1 expand and turtle with siege tanks and vikings vs. Terran. First I played something like 50 games against the computer doing these builds, basically trying to imprint them on my memory. When i finally got to Bnet I went 15-5 on ladder games, and the promotion on my last one. Pretty cool! I could see very clearly how silver players need to work on their mechanics, as I was winning my games purely on better macro.
In general, I feel my mechanics are slowly getting better. I rarely get supply blocked, I build lots of workers, and my money is always low (until mid-to-late game at least). I have to work on mid/late game macro though, know the exact time to add more production buildings, understand better army composition, get better at scouting and predicting what my opponent is planning to use against me, things like that. 
Can I get to Platinum in 2 or 3 months?  
See you, guys.

sounds like it shouldn't be that hard for you 
 
it seems you know what you're doing... or at least trying to do and what you're doing wrong. that's the most important part about it imho.  
if you lose and don't get why, watch the replay and watch out for what went wrong and try to improve it
