Almost one year ago I posted a blog entry on GiantBomb about how I was going to change my life, move out of my aunt’s small apartment and basically walk the golden path of glory! I must admit, things were going great around that time, I had just won a scholarship, gained some notice among everybody I knew, came really close to being monetary self- sufficiency and even better, summer was fast approaching which meant three months of non-stop partying.
You might think that there’s a negative note coming, that I somehow screwed up, you’d be wrong. From a material standpoint summer 2010 was one of the great ones; I got myself an Xbox, upgraded my computer, finally got that iPhone that I had been dreaming about and still had enough money left over to support myself for a whole year.
“But something did go wrong, right?” you might be tempted to ask, after all, what kind of jerk just blogs about how good he’s had it. Unfortunately no matter how much money you throw at someone, it won’t change that person. It’s like that tired old proverb of teaching someone to fish. I became so obsessed with making the best of what I had that I forgot the most important thing, actually having a good time.
Time passed, the money ran out and I’m back at square one. Some good did come out of all of this, I did become confident in myself and my actions and I’m less afraid to go nuts and have a good time.
I’ve also started recapping algorithms, programming and will be posting on this blog more often. I’ve actually become really interested in writing, I want to be good at it but it’s kind of hard especially since my English skills are a bit limited. Hopefully practice will make perfect and if you have any suggestions please comment, I could use some encouragement.
