STORY

I made a journal a while back about the games I want:  ingolingo.deviantart.com/journ…
I keep going back to this list updating it and wishing for the games that I don't have. That is a problem... I am earning money and I want to buy games that I don't have time for. I just bought a 3ds xl along with Animal Crossing NL, Kingdom Hearts 3D, Resident Evil Revelations, and some other lesser known games. All for $200 which is a great deal don't get me wrong but I want to make games not stockpile them. Then yesterday I bought Sid Meier's Civilization V: Complete Edition plus a Tile Generator(for game maker) for about $42. Again another good deal. I played with all those games and software for about 10 to 60 minuets each. Then I went to work. I work at a popular doughnut store, Krispy Kream. And at my job I got thinking about my near future plans and why they were getting held back. You see I want to make 2 games with some of my friends ( Tsebresos and WindWo1f ), create some more things that are stuck inside my head, and prepare to ether go back out on a mission or to prepare for school. I realized that I have to let some things go in order to make time for the things that will help me move forward with my life. I was miss managing my time that I have off work and Civilization V helped me realize that; thinking about how in RTS( Real Time Strategy ) games you need to manage your actions in order to have more things happen in a turn. And it is the same with life, and that's when it clicked that I need to let some things go, for a time at least. I have spent too many hours combing through ebay and steam looking for the best prices for the games I want. And in turn I spend a lot of time playing the sweet games I bought with money I could be using for food or saving for college. Plus spending $242 means I need to spend 2 weeks working at Krispy Kream to earn that back and I don't want to work there longer then I have to. This journal is to remind me that I already have A LOT of good games and I should be thankful for what I have instead of coveting games that I don't have. And I bet that there are more games that I haven't beaten then there are on my list of games that I want.

And that is more then enough for me at this point in time. This journal took me 3 hours to wright. Do I have more games? Most likely I will add them if I remember and if I can find them. And if you count all the free games on flash game websites, emulators, and all the arcade games in StarCraft 2 there is an INFINITE number of games I could play.

This is one problem holding back my future out of the way. On to the next problem, this one more personal. The next Journal will be a top ten list of my favorite video games and a short story about a tragic event that had me worried for years.

Until then, this is IngoLingo signing out!
