Okay, so its 11:16am. I'm sitting here in the Manager's office, sick as sh!t, and bored as all hell. You see, at my job, I make $11.00 an hour, to come in, enjoy the stomach flu I've contracted from god know's where (can you say icky?), and make sure crap gets done.
But fret not, I am a gamer. Yet, I sit all day, at a job with nothing to do, doing absolutely just that. I'm a Gamer with a passion to write, a passion to play, embark, and conquer every game I play. And where I want to be, is part of the site I'm writing this on. Someday I tell myself, someday. And maybe someday soon. Who knows? I do.
You see, I'm sick. I get sick really easily. That, and I have problems with my feet (yeah, thats right, I spent $400 bucks on insoles for my shoes that just look pretty) and so sitting here, writing, where I'm close to the toilet, just incase, is something that works for me. Though when I'm not sick, I'm out there, trying my best to enjoy the lack-of-interest monotany that is Allstar Video.
Though take my word for it, doing nothing all day for your job, and getting paid to do it, isn't all its cracked up to be. Because for one, I could be at home doing the same damn thing. My manager is a mindless drone, with an affinity to never stop talking. She's rude, and she's completely obese, which begs the question as to why she REALLY needs to TRY to act like the alpha female. God, there are skinnier chicks on those special interest reports about some lady who's stuck in her bed with a bucket of KFC wondering why she can't get out of it, waiting for the Crane to come lift her out.
I want to play games. And no, I don't want to get paid to do it. I want to play games, enjoy or not enjoy them, and share that with others, so I may make an informed, well thought out, and finely structured opinion. Every game has its downfall.
I guess every developer dilly's out a half @$$ slop job hoping to pour some more money into their next big project (Mortal Kombat Advance anyone?). And I guess thats what this is. This job isn't horrible, but it certainly is dead end, brick wall, end of the road jazz. And if I need to do this, get through this to get where I wanna go, then hey, its just like putting up with crap like MKA for the GBA so we can get some good stuff from Midway, or, well, better unlockables in an already awesome game.
So heres to all the Gamers out there, working 9-5 at a dead end job, thinking they'll never go anywhere. Lifes just a game, rated E for Everyone, so lets stick it to it, spend 5 to 9 playing games, and rinse and repeat until 9-5 we're doing what we love. Playing games. ;)
