Ok so lately I have not been doing much of the normal type gaming I normally do. I have been playing adventure games and mmos with the wife more often then not.
So far we have completed
Episodes 1-4 of the Back to the Future game by telltale on the psn.
Episode 1 of Tales of Monkey Island on the Psn
We have been splitting some other time between Rift and World of Warcraft as well.
So what have I been up too? Why have I not posted?
I am tired of reading gaming sites and gaming news. I am tried of critiques. I am sick of being told what my opinion of something should be or having pressure to sway it one way or another. Gaming is about having fun. Feels like we have lost that in this world of hard core and casual gamers.
I am focusing on things in life that matter like. My health, spending time with my wife, and puppy dog. I am attempting to live alot more Zen a life then I have in previous years. I am not worrying about if I am playing the newest game or what game I am playing as long as I am just having fun. I guess you could call this switching to a more casual outlook on gaming and sure why not call it that all you want. I am switching my world to hardcore in life. Living to the fullest. I want to better myself I want to be healthy and happy and successful.
Currently I do Tai Chi every moring, Workout and yoga alternating days of the week with one day a week of rest based on how I am feeling meaning when I can feel my body needs this day to rest I take that day and then do a great more healthy workout the follow up day.
I have been thinking more about what I want out of life and I realized I use gaming to escape from life alot because its not the way I want it to be. While there is only an amount of limited control you have over your life at times there is no reason it should be any other way then how you want it to be. I am pushing myself to become a healthier person with a happier outlook on life.
This is a great article that I found that is about removing stress from your life. I found it to be a good read.
Games I am looking forward too right now are Batman Arkham City and Mario 3DS. I have both of these pre-ordered and paid for at my local Game Trader.
It is my goal now however to be as Zen in life as I can. To relax and enjoy the little things. Let the fanboys rage quit and yell and scream on forums. I just do not have it in me anymore though I do have all the consoles and can’t say at this time I like one more then another with all of them having gigantic flaws and huge pluses. I do not see the point of arguing with stone walls which is what it is to talk to a fanboy.
Anyway other then gaming what do I do with my life? That is a question I am asking myself these days. I go on a cruise next week and I will ponder that as I lay on the deck of the boat and enjoy the good life for a week or so lol.
Here is some awesome advice for being more zen in your office or burger stand or where ever it is you wish to work.
I have been asking myself what would I do if I could do anything with unlimited resources at my disposal?
I would likely go to new zealand to be an extra in fantasy movies. I could be that fat stable boy who walks up and gets ordered to take care of the heroes horse… Huzzah!
I also thought it would be cool to get a job on a cruise boat and just enjoy the peace of the ocean and the hurricanes that go along with them. That sort of thing.
I am going to start P90X Next month which will be the start of a new journey in my life. I am looking forward to it. After so many years in front of a computer screen and working on websites all the time I really could use some time just working on improving myself. I mean yes I spend alot of time improving my mind in a fashion but what good is a shining throne that sits inside a broken down temple filled with cob webs and moth balls?
My life is good and I am lucky I have a good job, and great wife and a awesome puppy dog. I am attempting to rid my mind of the negative influences of things like ads, and people who would have me thinking one way and not keeping and open mind. I plan to free my mind and let it explore.
There will be more updates on my lifequest to better myself as time goes on.
