I think I am going to take my life in a different direction.
I have not been satisfied with how I have been living for a very long while.
So why have I not made any serious efforts to move in a different direction?
There are many books I want to read. There are many movies I want to watch. I want to start writing for recreation again. I want to start lifting weights again and become toned like I was a decade ago. I do not want a dependence upon the acquisition of video games or any other material object to be my point of self worth. I own hundreds of games I will never complete. I can rest easy in the fact that I am not alone there, there is no shame in that, but games are recreation for most people, and making them a way of life really is not for me. No offense to people who are all about that, for the record.
Volunteering has given me a completely different perspective of my life, actually. There are many people in the world, even in my very city, who do not know the luxuries that I take for granted. Feeding the homeless a couple of times a week really gives me a look at the larger scheme of things.
So, I have decided to abandon achievement hunting, and the Internet in general, for a while. I still will be doing a lot of gaming, but it will be without any set goal in mind, and it will be for fun primarily. And I am going to try to make a habit of keeping my consoles turned off until I have all of my priorities in order the best I can. Gaming is a lot more fun when I have nothing that I know I need to get done hanging over my head while I am at it. And if I don't feel like picking up a controller, I should not feel obliged to. I guess that means I will no longer schedule any sessions with others, but I always preferred SP anyway, so.....
So, yeah, that is where I am going to start taking my life.
