(Literally) Moving On In Life

Well, it's time for some crap real-life news.  My parents have always talked about moving away for years.  Our house is too small, etc.  They would always go look at houses for sale but never really commit to it.  But now, they're for real.  They signed the papers and we're moving at the end of June.  This completely came out of nowhere.  Thankfully, it's still in the same town we've lived in all this time.

I've been living in this house for over ten years so it's gonna be weird to leave.  The longer you live somewhere, the more awkward it is to go.  Ultimately, I want my parents to be happy so if moving is what we gotta do, then do it.

But regardless if we move or not, I'm outta here and moving to Florida to attend FIEA in the fall.  So I basically have 2-3 months left of "freedom" before I enter the grinder and hope to make a positive name for myself.  So basically, Louisiana is gone so let that sink in for a sec.  Oh well, we gotta make SEGA dreams happen and if that means moving to the East Coast, West Coast, Japan, whatever, let's go do it.

Also today I went to the old mall that I made into a CS map.  The mall where I played Daytona USA 2.  Hmm...there just doesn't seem to be anything going on here anymore.  KayBee Toys, Babbage's, now (I think) Mrs. Field's Cookies is gone too.  The arcade hasn't changed any.  I tried playing Crazy Taxi again but I'm just terrible at it now, what a shame.  However, I ate an Auntie Anne's pretzel and that's not terrible.  Remember macabre dreams I've had and how the place will be bulldozed in a matter of years.

I really don't know what else to say anymore.  The way I see it, I almost wish I had left for Florida and started classes right now because I'm just getting screwed here where I live.  I know it's a daring maneuver, but with the way things are going, I can't sit on the sidelines anymore, I have to LIVE baby.  I'm tired of worrying about stuff.  Yes, me and my family may be going insane, yes video games and its culture may be dead, yes everything sucks, but now I must live like I'm dying cause I know my days are numbered, so to speak.  Then maybe I can get to work and hopefully put my mind to rest for once.  I really have no idea what I just said here--I'm under a lot of emotional stress.

Now to take photographs of everything before I go.
