Hello


Recommended Posts

I've been flirting with this for a long time now. It first started with my health years ago. I was way overweight. 300lbs. I knew then that my love of gaming helped me get there. So I cut back. Started working out and lost a ton of weight. I got healthy. I went back to games. I gained back my weight. I lost it again. Went back to games and gained back. At one point I thought I finally had it down. Until my son was born 10 months ago. It's been hard for me to get here, but I've known for quite a while this was coming. It's something I needed to do. It started with all of my old school classics. They went first a couple months ago. Today, as gut wrenching as it was, I sold off the last of my collection. My Wii U with over 50+ games, physical and downloaded. I almost talked myself out of it a few  times. It's hard and its uncomfortable because I took away that saftey I've always gone back too. I grew up with it. I literally love video games. I have the master key from Mario 64 tattooed on my right bicep. I let games hold me back long enough though. One day if my son shows a real interest, maybe I'll pick up a controller again. For now though, I'm a little sad, but I'm happy. I feel like a weight has been lifted. It's crazy. I want to see what I can do without the games. For the first time in my life I have zero games and I'm okay with this. I guess it's bitter sweet. I'm ready for this though. I cannot wait to see what the future holds.

We can't wait to see what your future holds too. Just stay with community, and what's most important, stay with your son.

Greetings.
