Not much else to post about. I have done some writing, but I haven't finished anything. I don't have internet access at home, which should be great for writing but terrible for helping find a job. Nothing makes you feel cut off from everything like losing your internet connection. I realize that people have been living without the internet for thousands of years before it's inception. As I have no money to go out and do stuff, the internet is kind of my connection to the outside world. Right now I am sitting at the library. There is a guy at the same table as me taking apart an acer netbook. The connection is so slow I can't download anything that I usually do. I can't watch my shows on Hulu like I generally do. Last night I coped by spending several hours playing a gladiator game on my iPad. It was pretty cathartic. Nothing like slashing, slicing and beating my way through several huge burly guys to get rid of some angst. Usually I use Unreal Tournament as my go-to catharsis. Last night, it was just fun to beat guys up.
Don't get me wrong. I am not a violent person in real life. I could hit someone hard enough to hurt them to save my life. I think that is one of the fallacies that people who are against video games try to perpetuate. Playing games on my computer, or iPad, does not make me want to beat up or shoot people in real life. If anything, it helps me to get rid of some of the frustration so that in real life I can deal with people. I have an outlet for it. An outlet that is safe and hurts no one. I think it is similar to the therapy trick of having someone hit an inanimate object with a baseball bat. I can get all the irrational feelings out of the way so I can deal with life in a more reasonable manner. which is good. Cause with the way things are going right now, I need to be as reasonable as I can get.
