Many people know for a fact that great things simply don’t happen over night. A person striving to start something, to be someone, is no different. In the end you are in control of your own destiny, you can either remain as you are, brushed beneath the carpet of society, or you can strive to be something more.
This realization that I am coming of age, and about to go to college in about two years is finally starting to sink in. I for one don’t want to be under that “carpet of society.” People say if you want to be noticed, simply put your name out there, and the rest will follow. Some people now in days feel entitled, like everyone owes them a thing. I for one am firmly against this. You get what you put into your life. As a writer that intends to major in Journalism at the University of Missouri in the fall of 2016, I expect to struggle and face adversity. Nothing great or worthwhile comes easy. If it did, everyone would be. However, I believe that my experience at Mizzou will be worthwhile and time well spent. I will learn new techniques to master my craft which is currently amateur at best. New ideas and a completely different environment will also more than likely change me not only as a writer but also as a person.
This website will undergo change as well. The website will grow, just as I grow as a writer. I will not retcon older articles that probably have some grammatical errors (Including this one) because I want this website to show this change that I will inevitably go through as a writer. My writing style may change along with my opinions on certain kinds of games may vary over the years. Yet I won’t change the articles, they will remain as they are in order to remind myself and others how far I have come.
As a reader I hope you will enjoy me talking about my various opinions regarding Video Games and every once and a while something else. This is because as someone whose dream is to cover gaming or tech news for a company after college, I have to start somewhere. So I decided to put fate in my own hands and be accountable, not letting anyone else pull me down from reaching my potential.
By doing this I hope it makes me a better person and writer, because honestly we can all get better at what we do. This essentially sums up what this blog will be about. Expect reviews, criticisms, praises and more from this blog regarding gaming. Just remember when reading them, that they are purely my opinions, because if everyone has a right to a single thing, it should definitely be the freedom to think and believe in what you deem is right.
