Today was a big day for me. After watching an episode of South Park “Make Love, Not Warcraft”, I decided it was time to uninstall all my money saving computer games. Even though I played World of Warcraft only once, I still decided it was time to move on. I’ve been a huge gamer since I was kid, and it did end up saving me a ton of money when I was in college. When all my friends wanted to go out and party, I sometimes decided to stay in and play video games (saved me from getting in debt and trouble). I know how nerdy that sounds, but I know that most guys have done that at least once in their lives.
The years of enjoyment had to end at some point, and the time for me to grow up was here. What will I do with such an open schedule? Well, I am going to dedicate more time writing, reading, and school work. It’s been a life changing day. It feels like a 500 pound weight has been taken off my back.
Coldplay can sum up how I feel in the song “Fix You.”
“When the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can’t replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you
High up above or down below
When you’re too in love to let it go
If you never try you’ll never know
Just what you’re worth”
Company of Heroes
Command and Conquer
You will be missed, but never forgotten. *This post had a lot of sarcasm, but trust me it was still a hard day for me*
Do you have anything that you have had to give up for the greater good? Come on don’t be shy.
