I don’t normally do these, but I felt it was necessary considering I had a nervous breakdown of sorts today.
I bought Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 today, which I cannot play because my Xbox 360 is in storage, and I was genuinely upset considering I am a HUGE gamer, and this is the first time I’ll have bought a game I cannot play immediately after I got it.
After that, I went to check the mail, and something I was expecting didn’t come, so I called the place, and they said they hadn’t mailed it yet.
Needless to say, I was STRESSED OUT driving back to the hotel, and when I got back, I flipped out.
Progress is going so slow on my applications and such for Film School, and I haven’t played a game in almost 3 weeks. That’s a long time for me, and the longest I haven’t played in years.
Videogames have always been a constant for me, and a source of defragmenting everything going on in my life, so not having them, and being stressed out of my mind with paperwork, and being worried about the future… It was bound to make me crack eventually.
So I have a choice: I can pull out my Xbox out of storage, buy a small TV, and play games, or I can buck up, and weather this storm. I talked to my mom about this, and she seems adamant to allow me to retrieve my system, but I see multiple negatives rather than pure positives.
The situation is so complex overall, I just wish it wasn’t.
