I am a gamer. I love being a gamer. I love being a nerd in general. I own it. I'm proud of it. But there is one thing I've never really understood: Escapism.
Now, let me clarify. I understand the concept. However, it's not something I've ever really done. I get into games, let them suck me into their world, but I do it because it's fun, not because I feel the need to escape reality. Reality has its own quirks and mysteries that are fun to figure out. I've never wanted a break from my life.
That has changed, today. When you realize that, no matter how hard you try, your own parents don't think of you as anything but worthless and inept, it's time to just forget reality for awhile, and delve into some other world. That is what today is about. So many other things I should be doing right now, but I really don't feel like it. This is not something I plan on making a habit of, but, for today, life is on hold. Fuck it all.
