My head was throbbing. I was tired. Felt a little sick. April 10th. That was when I made my decision.
I had been reading Destructoid articles for some time, comments too, and watching videos. It all looked like a great deal of fun. There were some interesting characters here and I would like to become... part of the cast, if you will.
But I am a shy, nervous young man. I had my doubts. I'm not a computer savvy person; what if I can't do some simple, stupid thing, like upload a picture? I'd feel like an ass. I thought it wouldn't be worth it. Wouldn't mean anything. Truth be told I won't know if it will until later.
Anyhow, I was feeling sick and tired and I had a headache, my day had not gone well, and I felt I should do something meaningful. Problem being I was sitting on my butt at a computer. I went on to Destructoid; brought up a few articles, read a few comments... and for some reason decided that I really hate my email. Like, it just bugged the hell outta me. So, filled with angry headache-fueled energy I made a new email account. A brand new thing, completely clean. I thought about new beginnings, and meeting new people, and how in order to meet new people, I have to go places. Which I can't because I don't have a car. Bummer.
But... that wasn't true.
People meet over the internet all the time, make friends, sometimes even get married.
I thought to myself, " I can try it at least, but where to begin?" The answer was obvious.
I love videogames. I love to go on Destructoid, and they love videogames too! So I spent a few minutes coming up with a profile name... and realized it was late and I could do this tomorrow.
Thus, on April 11th, 2013, on my lunch break, I created my profile on Destructoid. I found an avatar image, and am trying to figure Disqus out. I checked out the meet and greet on the forums. I'm looking forward to sharing with others my interest in videogames. I'm not sure if this was a good decision -yet- but I am sincerely hoping it will be.
