Lost the Desire :(

I feel like I owe it to my Xbox friends to write an entry in this blog explaining what I have been up to and why if you've seen me on the xbox this week I was most likely on the dashboard (thought I'd give dashboard saving a go like tractakid does :P).

Truth be told my girlfriend of 3 years left me on Sunday after I discovered a few of her secrets she been hiding the past 4 months. It's the worst kind of betrayal and hurts. As a result I've needed my friends more than ever and I have once again focused my attention on skateboarding, the only love in life that will never hurt me (least not emotionally).

Right now is a prime example of my lack of motivation. It's a sunday morning and it looks pretty wet outside so chances of skateboarding properly are really slim. My usual self would say "screw skateboarding, I'm going to get some achievements" but I just don't feel like that right now. Heck I have new copies of NFS Hot Pursuit and AC Brotherhood sat right under my nose as I type this yet the desire to play them is slim. In 3 days I've gotten hold of Kinect, a HTC 7 Trophy (mobile with Windows Live on) and the 2 games I just mentioned. That should be enough to hype anybody but i's not quite working. I'm starting to regret buying Call of Duty BlackOps too as that has barely been touched at all. No regrets on purchasing Green Day Rock Band though as I know eventually I will love to play that.

This is the best time of the year to be a gamer and the worst time to be a skateboarder (due to weather) however my priorities are stopping me from enjoying my Xbox to it's fullest. Life sure is crappy for me right now. [cry]


  1. Keep strong man things will pick up again soon! Ease yourself into playing again, it'll be a good distraction for you. Try and keep yourself busy and you'll find things might be easier to handle. Times like this when losing yourself in a video game can sometimes be better than having to deal with real life.

  2. Sorry to hear about the lady problems. Rhetorical question: What's worse, a betrayal that ends a relationship suddenly, or a long, slow death as it dawns on you the person you've cared about the last few years no longer has any feelings (or even basic interest) in you at all? That's how mine went down. Both suck, I'm thinking.

    Enjoy the company of friends. You're right to spend time with them. They're the best people to be around when you're down.
