Hello people!

Long time no see NuTang family! I've decided to start blogging a bit more than I used to. Below is a "Life Goals" paper that I had to write for one of my classes. As you will read, I aspire to become a writer. So, I figured using this blog more often can only help; give me practice and what not. Please, feel free to critique my writing. Your input will only help me to improve. Thanks for reading!

Vince Vaughn once said, I found that if you have a goal, that you might not reach it. But if you dont have one, then you are never disappointed and I gotta tell ya, it feels phenomenal. I spent the better part of fifteen years thinking this way, and as cynical as it may be, this was my credo - my way of life. Between getting into trouble at home, and not doing well at school (not because I wasnt smart, but because I didnt like being told what to do), I was doomed to a life as a loser with no direction. It was only recently that this idea of a goalless future changed. This change would be caused by the birth of my beautiful daughter, and I can assure you this: I will be a good father, I will provide for her, and I will be successful in life.

At the age of nineteen I had plans of enlisting in the Air Force and then going on to work for NASA after I had retired. I spent an entire summer working towards this goal, and I was determined to achieve my goal. Sadly, this honorable dream was crushed only a few months later. I still remember that day like it was yesterday. I was at a party with my friends, celebrating the Fourth of July and I was to swear in at the Rangers game the next day. After the party I foolishly decided it would be ok to drive home intoxicated. I had no regard for what I had at stake and it was foolish for me to even be at that party in the first place. Needless to say, I was pulled over and arrested for Driving While Intoxicated resulting in my hopes and dreams shattered. I did not let this keep me down, however, and in just a couple of years later I was back on my feet again.
Videogames have always been an interest and hobby of mine. I can still remember when my oldest brother bought me a Nintendo Entertainment System for my fifth birthday. Ever since that day, I was hooked on gaming. Throughout my childhood I owned just about every gaming console that came out from that point to the present day. It was only when I met my ex-girlfriend that my views on gaming were forcefully changed. She absolutely despised them. She just couldnt understand why anyone would ever waste their time with such a stupid activity. In order to keep the peace I had to give them up. I later learned that you should never have to change yourself to make someone happy. It was that constant conflict of interests that ultimately lead to our break-up. Surprisingly, we lasted nearly two years before the inevitable happened, and it wasnt but a month after that when she found out she was pregnant.

During her pregnancy I decided that I would give college a try, after all, I had a new motivation to succeed and that was my daughter. I wasnt sure (and Im still not totally) of what I wanted to do while in school, but I knew an education would be the key to providing for her. The first class I took was English Comp I. To my surprise, I found that I was a decent writer (at least according to my instructor I was). And despite hating school growing up, I actually enjoyed the experience this time. Despite enjoying school and making good grades, the question of What do you want to be? still haunted me.

After reading countless articles from various gaming magazines, I decided that reviewing games looked like a fun and exciting career. I plan on taking as much writing as I can while Im here at TCC and work towards being an editor at Game Informer Magazine or one of the many gaming magazines out there. With my daughter in mind, I know that I can, and will, make anything happen to support her. I will continue to take classes, learn as much as I possibly can, and be the best father and mentor to her I can possibly be. Who knows? Maybe one day I will gain custody of her and she can grow up playing videogames just like her old man.
