I was planning on waiting to make another blog entry only until I got to level 10 but I couldn't help it. I am currently at level 9, 2 levels up from last week. But most importantly why I'm making this blog entry is because I finally got my very own union started I'm so excited. "The Super Mario Bros. Union" What a great name! And with the "New Super Mario Brothers" Game coming out on the DS (May 15) my timing couldn’t be better. To everyone out there in TV land I invite you to join this Union, you won't regret it I’m hungry, motivated and eager.
I've done a lot in one week. Go from level 3 to 7. Write 4 decent reviews. Add all my games to "my collection" and rate them all, that was grueling. Join some good unions, make some friends and last but not least… earn 5 badges. Now I'm going for my 6th badge the "artist" badge. Seeing as I went to a Graphics Art School one would hope I could get such a badge. But you be the judge, I posted these in the banner contest board.

Wow I'm really flyin' here. Through even more hard work and even tougher decisions, I accomplished my 2006 GameSpot goal #5 "Join a union or two." I joined 4! Three great ones and one that has some potential. While it's true I'm only a "recruit" who knows what my future holds. I see myself down the line as being a recruit who adds "hella" value to my unions without ever really being in the roles of "Leader" or "Officer". But, to such individuals I salute you.
Through a lot of hard work and tough decisions I accomplished my 2006 GameSpot goal #1 "Give a rating to every game in my illustrious collection." You may notice I never give any game a below 7 rating. Reason being, if in my opinion the game is below a 7 it's not a game worth having.
1. Give a rating to every game in my illustrious collection.
2. Write 100 good reviews.
3. Post 150 times on the forums.
4. Post at least 20 times on my blog.
5. Join a union or two.
6. See to it that all Old School games get a "box art" picture on the site.
