New milestones, the future and many thanks.
Hello everyone. It's me again writing another blog post. It's been over three years since i wrote my last post i thought i would write a new one in regards to recent events.
First of as many of you might know i hit 500,000 gamerscore on April 19th 2017. This is something that I've been working towards for the past 4+ years(to be exact more like 9 years but i only started getting seriously into achievements back in 2011-2012). However a more recent goal that i set up and that to me felt much bigger was becoming Nr 1 in the Swedish gamerscore leaderboard. This goal was achieved May 17th 2017. This felt for me more like a true accomplishment. The main reason is because it basically means that I am the best in Sweden at something. This has never been the case before and as such i felt very proud of reaching this goal.
As for the future I have had a number of people asking me what my next goal is and to be honest i don't truthfully know. Becoming the best in the world is out of the question for a number of reasons(mainly time and economical costs). Same with becoming Nr 1 in Europe. So instead for now i will simply keep on doing what I am already doing.
Real life also unsurprisingly have effects on me and this account. I will be done with high school on June 9th and will celebrate my 20th birthday on June 13th. Some of you might be thinking that 19 like a very old age to be done with high school. First of high school might be different where you live compared to Sweden. In Sweden one usually finishes high school when you're 18 or 19. The reason why it's taken me a year longer is because i changed my line of study after the 1st year and as a side effect had to re-do year one again but in a different field study. My plan is to go to College after this semester(assuming i get into one of the courses). Once again college might be different in Sweden compared to say the US where college can end up costing a lot of money. Here in Sweden college is free:) That is unless you decide to take a loan to buy your own apartment(something that isn't really going to happen in Stockholm due to a current housing shortage). Obviously college will have a pretty big impact on my time/gaming schedule.
To round of this blog post i would like to give love and shout outs to those have been for me all these years. I would like to thank Spegelbilder, Bytyqi and Bikelund for supporting me and really pushing me to move forward. I would like to thank Darkling1542, Sonicfreak1986 and KillcrazyCarl for making boosting session much more enjoyably. It is people like you guys that makes T.A the awesome site it is. You are what ever achievement booster should strife towards becoming.
Lastly i would like to thank each and every one of you that writes comments and just generally make my time on this website that more of an experience. It is all the positive comments that you all leave that makes me push towards achieving these types of huge goals.
Thank you all
