All About -TheSecondSign-
"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat." THEODORE ROOSEVELT (Paris Sorbonne,1910)
Being an adult sucks. It doesn't suck because I have to do laundry, or go to work, or cook for myself, or that I'm expected to do things. All those things are great. I like doing most of those things. I like being responsible for myself. I like cooking my own food, picking what I wear every day, and all in all, I like being a grown man. Being a grown man beats being a kid any day.
Being an adult sucks because you realize most other adults are f*cking losers. 95.43% of all people over the age of 18 are god damn losers. They're losers now and they'll be losers forever. I don't need a source to back that up. Go outside. Spend 45 minutes conversing with other people your own age. Listen to the awful bullsh*t they spew as they justify the miserable state of their own existence. No plan, no job, no car, no money, no anything. And it's always someone else's fault.
And it's only getting worse.
Hey guys. How's it been?
So it's been awhile. If anyone actually still reads my blog, well I've been really busy lately.
My good friend just had his first kid, and my other just got married. I'm still a single man myself, but its only because I can't be stealing all the ladies from my pals, ya see.
I've recently beaten Metal Gear Solid 4, and am currently replaying Red Dead Redemption. I'm actually going to attempt to finish it this time.
In all, I love the writing, setting, characters, and the gameplay is great, so I'm pretty excited to see where it goes past Mexico. Also, I just got into Silent Hill with Homecoming.
I should be going on leave soon, hopefully, maybe. Will post more but I work tonight.
I found out about a little store called Estarland(They have a website) from a Gamestop employee when I inquired about older, classic games.
It turns out in Fairfax, Virginia, there's a store that sells old games, accessories, consoles, even imported titles and collectible models and even creepy anime figures in maid costumes. All in all, its a pretty badass store.
I bought a new, factory sealed copy of Chrono Cross. For 16 bucks.
I purchased Final Fantasy Anthologies, Chrono Cross, and even found a new copy of Parasite Eve II, and got them all for less than 100 bucks. I've almost beaten Parasite Eve II(Down to the Mitochondria Baby and Parasite Eve herself), but I've yet to really start the other two.
Needless to say I'm a customer for life and I'll be going back soon. They have everything there, even Atari 2600, 5200, and Jaguar games.
I also got the Collector's Edition of Batman: Arkham Asylum, which I'm playing right now.
In addition to all this I've officially started writing again, although I seriously doubt anything I write will ever publish.
