I Have No Life, and It's Thanks To Games
I help out at an independent game store. I help out after class and help set up events.
It's because of this place that I don't really have free time. I enjoy just hanging out after class and selling stuff, doing midnight launches, and other stuff for the store and it eats up all my free time.
It all started last year before I quit Gamestop. I was going to PAX East and went to the owner saying, 'Hey, I'm going to PAX and I think it'd be cool if I could write up some stuff for your blog about me going.' He thought it'd be a good idea and now I help out at the store a lot.
It's pretty much my job without me actually working there, and to be honest, I'm okay with that.
The best thing about working at Gamestop was the being that into the gaming culture. By helping out at this independent store, I still get the same culture but I don't have to put up with the corporate BS and I have a lot more freedom to do stuff in relation to it.
We can do tournaments and events on whatever we want, like an 8-bit tournament we did a few months ago and going to a local comic expo to set up a gaming area. Running the stores blog (which I should really update again) and we just started up a podcast.
But with all this extra stuff I do for the store I barely have a life. It's thanks to games I have no life (in conjunction with school and work), but I'm okay with it.
Well, I'd be more okay if I had the time to play games!
Here's a plug for our podcast: http://gamexcape.podomatic.com/
It's only three episodes in, but you have to start somewhere.
