Years and years have gone by and my video game collection keeps growing and growing. I beat a few games here and there in hopes of shortening my backlog significantly. My life is becoming busier the more money I receive. I’m almost near my goal of buying a house. Maybe the add on expenses of home ownership will curb my insatiable desire to buy video games. I may have subconsciously tried to save money by replacing my # 1 hobby, video games, with reading books. If you read a lot, buying books can be just as expensive or more than gaming. The downside to having these two main hobbies is trying to find time and money to keep up with them.
I work two jobs. As of right now I can afford to sustain a disposable income for these two hobbies. These aren’t my only hobbies, however. I also like to draw which I’ve taken a break from a year to see if I still want to do it. And I still do. I also enjoy writing. I’m not particularly good at either hobby, but I enjoy them immensely.
Drawing and writing are my least expensive hobbies, but require a great deal more of time to become skilled at. But, I have to get realistic with myself here that I’m probably going to have to cut off one my lifelong hobbies. It will probably be drawing. I have a lot of ideas I’d like to get drawn on paper, but I’m often told writing is the best choice for me to express myself by others. At the age of five I was set on becoming a great cartoonist. Nearly three decades later I might be coming to the realization that I’m not that good at drawing. Video games and books occupy most of my free time. And I can’t let these two hobbies go. These two interests are what I’m primarily focused on.
In time I hope this passion for gaming and reading lead to something rewarding in my life. If it doesn’t, oh well, at least I got some joy out of it.
