This past weekend, I started thinking about who I am and how I've gotten here over time. Funnily, it wasn't gaming itself that brought this up, but an effect of gaming. For whatever reason, shooters are causing my right hand to have pain flare ups, which I've never experienced before. My best guess is that I'm finally feeling the effects of gaming for as long as I have. I'm trying a few new things to alleviate the pain as well: turning off vibration, regular breaks, that kind of stuff.
A few other changes I've noticed are how I almost never stay up later than 10pm. Though I've never been one for alcohol, my overall consumption is minuscule compared to the college days. But there are positives as well: I dress a better when going out. I clean more regularly (and more thoroughly).
