There have probably been blog posts similar to this but I am going to rant about this anyway.
What is with all these people, in game and IRL, telling you “Oh, why are you always playing games? You’re SUCH a loser. Get a life. etc.” Its annoying, and I’ve been told so many times that I have to vent. So what if I’m always playing some MMO, wasting my life away at the computer. First of all, it isn’t their business what you do. Second of all, there’s nothing wrong with playing MS for 8 hours straight! (except for major headaches). I’ll admit, sometimes I turn down an outing, just because my guild is planning on GPQing, or just because I want to level up. I spend most Friday nights online, and sometimes Saturdays too. I HAVE NO LIFE, according to the general public. But what’s important is, I have fun! I have fun having no life, and if it makes me happy, leave me alone. **** everyone who thinks you should be hanging around the mall or at a party every night because its boring.
Today I was on Profil3, and this banner on a girl’s homepage said “Maplestory, the only place that feels like home”. That was the one bit of text I could really connect to (if I used that in English class I wouldn’t be bull****ting for once). Nothing (more like no one) satisfies me in real life. My life away from MS is boring, and awkward; I’m constantly messing up and saying the wrong things. Whenever I fall in love, I mess it up, and then the guy ends up leaving. For me love doesn’t come often, and it hurts. And the worst part is, I can’t run from this; whatever mistakes I make leaves an impression on the people in my town, and these impressions don’t fade. I can’t move, my parents won’t let me. But on MS, I just quit, I run away and when I finally come up with a good explanation for my erratic behavior, I come back, apologize, and all is good again.
I’ve ranted much too long and this post is so lengthy no one wants to read it, so I’ll shut up.
