Is this the end of the road? Well, not really, I’m not retiring the gamertag or anything like that, at least not yet, but I know that I’m living a new life and that gaming is not going to have much room anymore. That’s why I’ve chosen Contrast to get to this milestone. The last achievement is called “Fin”, which means “The End” in Spanish.
After being able to score about 100K a year for 5 consecutive years, this last 100K has taken me almost a year and a half. I was already slowly fading away from gaming but after the brake-up with my GF I knew that it has come the time to change my life.
Is not that I don’t like gaming now but I’m not very motivated to play. In all honestly, I’m trying to change my way of living, taking steps forward and leaving my past behind. It was a beautiful time that I still cherish. But I need it to become a reminiscence of my past and get even with myself back again.
Focusing on new projects is the way to go for me. I’ve many interesting things going on in my life right now. Working a lot and really enjoying it. Meeting new people and trying to keep up with everything that is going on around me. I’m happy, really happy. Even that it’s been really hard, life is worth living. I have been playing many gigs (one very special in the public Spanish TV that is going to appear on TV pretty soon and should be online to watch) and have many interesting recordings and projects that I’m working on. Feel kind of inspired, but not really writing broken-hearted songs.
My ex-GF has been part of my whole Xbox story, she was by my side in each milestone. This is the first time I reach a 100K milestone that I’m home alone. I still thank her for all the love and support during that period of time, where gaming was something that I could share with her. Not having her to share this hobby is one of the reasons to not find it as interesting as before. I need to do other things right now. Need to open the windows and let some fresh air into the room.
I also want to thank to all my usual suspects, all the great people I’ve met through these years and to my Spanish achievements community. I’ve problems putting into words my gratitude towards all of you. Wishing you guys the best for your personal life.
Life has a lot to offer, if you’re willing to take it and I’m gonna fight for it.
I’ll still be around. I’ve many games to play and I’m not selling my stuff. Don’t need the money and don’t want more headaches selling things. I’m just gonna keep playing once in a while and I’ll try to visit the site sometimes to see what’s going on. I may even boost or play shitty games, depending in the moment. I want to play many great games that take long to complete but, at the same time, don’t want to start a game that can take me months to complete at my pace.
I’d like to clean some more games to get at least back to 99% again and hopefully finally get to 1000 completed games. I need 38 more and even that I could do it pretty easily with all the easy and quick games I own, I’m not running anymore. That’s the last milestone I’m interested in, as the million Gs seems too far right now with my gaming pace and I’m not sure if I’ll ever get there.
I never liked looking that far or making long term plans as they never worked for me. Right now I’m going to focus in finishing the school year and finally taking my vacations in a month and a half. I’ll have a couple of months to finally sit down, relax and think about what I want to do. Life has been a rollercoaster this year and I really need to take a rest. Next Friday I’m also going to see Eric Clapton in the Royal Albert Hall in London. Going to spend the whole weekend there. Really can’t wait. It’s going to be a very special night for me. A dream that comes true.
Thanks again for reading!
Take care everyone!
