My Video Games Are My Motivation

A guy here writing about blah, blah, blah, whatever. Or here writing about something with some meaning that everyone should think about

A Stronger Reason to Go On There Never Was!


My Hobby Is My Reason to Fight For What I Want!

Opening -

How many of you out there have hobbies, how many of you with those hobbies aspire to find 6 ways to make that hobby even more fun? One, two, 300 of you, 500?

My favorite hobby is video games and video game tech, I dabble in collecting both including the games of said hobby. Some people say 'God' got them out of the bed because they get to see another day thanks to him.

I don't believe in God, I believe in me. When I get up in the morning, it's because I chose not to take my life the night previous. Plus, I'm a father of two great kids. Elementally bad in their own right, but they're good kids. I get up in the morning because there are things that only I can do.

Above all, I get up in the morning because of my hobby. I've been playing video games for 32 1/2 years. Christmas Day, it'll be 33. I lost my job recently due to some unprofessional behavior on my part and even now I am looking for a job.

You know why, I have expensive gaming tastes, 70 dollars here, 90 dollars there, 441.60 everywhere. Too much, too expensive, that's the point!

The Motivation -

When I play video games, that's an opportunity to learn about the many aspects of that game not to mention a chance for me to spread my strategic wings as it were and apply my strategic abilities to playing and beating that game.

When I get up in the morning, it's a new day to learn, play and beat whatever game I'm working on. Whenever I end up unemployed, I don't just stay down. I drag myself up from the dirt and continue on. My video gaming hobby is my reason behind why I won't give up.

I never leave anyone to buy my video games or spend any kind of money on my hobby, it is for me alone. Sure, I get some time to kill while I'm waiting on a job to call me or me them, but in the meantime, I'm going to be gaming.

See, where I come from, I had two choices. Stay home and find me a hobby within, which I did early, thankfully. Or, be out running the streets and spending part, if not my whole, adult life in jail. I wasn't on the latter as you can see.

Incidentally, my video game hobby is the reason why I'm not in jail right now for kicking the crap out people around my complex that I know deserve it and some not in my complex.

The way I see it, as long as you have a physical hobby that'll exercise your mind and hands, you don't have any reason to get into trouble. I'm not saying be a wuss or shy at from battle. But what I am saying is that hobbies make it so you don't care about going against the grain so to speak.

Like I mentioned, I love my hobby way too much to throw it away taking someone's life or trying to be the neighborhood tough guy or the bully of cyberspace. Hobbies can save lives and mine has saved me hundreds of times over including stopping me from going to jail for life.

People get in trouble or go to prison or even end up dead by someone else's hands or their own because people don't try to find a hobby that'll keep them on the calm and collected.

When I play my video games and dabble in my video game tech, it puts my mind at ease. To me, I don't care about the world as long as I have my video gaming hobby. I also write too so that also get me through a lot. I'm introverted so it doesn't mean anything to me to ignore the world and the people within it.

My hobby has always been enough to get me to applying, getting hired and working a job so I can fund my expensive gaming tastes. Most people don't know this about me, but my hobby is my motivation for just about everything I do from staying out of trouble to staying out from under the watchful of the justice system that's always looking to lock a nigga up for life. We're just animals to them. At least that how it's been viewed anyway.
