Nameís Scarritt. Iím in my early 30ís, working in retail. Started school at THE Appalachian State University, but, unfortunately, never graduated. Kinda got myself in over my head my second year trying to take on too many classes and had to withdraw. Iíd still like to go back to school at some point, but I still have no idea what I would like my major to be (I enrolled my first time as Undecided and never did pick one).

Iíd like to think of myself as a fairly intelligent person, but sadly, I am far from a writer. Iíve been wanting to start a blog for a while now, though, and Iíve been dating a cool kid who happens to have one, so I guess he kinda inspired me.

I love gaming, but Iíve never really considered it as something you ďget intoĒ, much like I didnít ďget intoĒ reading or something like that. Iíve been gaming most of my life. Being born in the early 80ís, I started out playing on one of the Atari systems (canít narrow it down more than that, sadly). I can remember the first time I played an NES; I was hanging with my step-brother and a friend of his sometime after its launch, and I was blown away by Super Mario Bros. When I got a chance to play, I couldnít get past the very first Goomba because I thought you were supposed to press ďUpĒ on the D-pad in order to jump. Obviously that didnít work. My step-brother and his friend kept laughing and wouldnít tell me how to get past it, and didnít let me play long enough to figure out that pressing ďAĒ made Mario jump.

So that year, my mom bought me my very own NES (í86, maybe?). Soon after that, I was spending a weekend at my grandmotherís, and my mom let me take it with me and set it up on my grandmotherís TV. No idea why, but it ended up permanently throwing the channels out of whack (the kind of TV that had a channel dial; if you turned the channel to 5, it would be on 8).

Anyway, favorite game genres: action, RPG, puzzle, the occasional FPS and fighter. Recent games I loved are the Mass Effect trilogy, Fallout New Vegas, Borderlands, Fez, and Red Dead Redemption. Iím playing through Dark Souls at the moment (and loving it), along with Persona 3 Portable, Final Fantasy I on my Windows Phone, and Binding of Isaac.

So yeah, thatís me. Who knows how often Iíll update this thing, but I am working on a second entry (all right, third).
