...and I really feel like my life is going in a direction for once, and it's a good direction! I have a job I like, I'm passing classes at my college, and I've made friends at both places. The problem is, I feel like I abandoned my gamer friends, both online and in real life. All I have is coworkers and classmates who only superficially know me. Plus, I just downright miss video games. Anyway, with that out of the way, there's nothing witheld between me and you forum users, so let me really introduce myself. I am calmkat when I'm online (not really comfortable with personal information yet). I failed Purdue last year and my dreams of being a game designer were crushed. So now I'm in biotechnology at a community college. Since it was my gaming obsession that caused me to fail, I swore off video games. 32 days later, all I play is D&D for a few hours a week, the rest is consumed by work and school. I don't know if I feel fulfilled, but I do know I miss games. I missed out on Destiny's expansion, and Fallout 4's. Now I'm going to miss the Paradox Interactive games' expansions too. Anyway, sorry for the rambling post but feel free to respond if you have advice or just want to say hi.
