Nerd Alert!

IMG_8214[1]Last night at 12:00am, technically this morning, I walked into GameStop and picked up my Day One XBOX ONE!!  It was exciting.  We only waited  in line for about 25 minutes and it took about a minute at the register.  We obviously reserved ours before hand and it was a good thing because if you didn’t reserve it ahead of time, they had no more to sell outside of the reserved list!!

I never pre-ordered, reserved or waited outside a store for a Day One anything in my life.  I am glad I did especially because there were maybe 40 people on line at most.  It wasn’t crazy, it wasn’t freezing and I had my best friend with me.  He was really excited when we got home.  Setting up all the stuff like a little kid on Christmas.  It was cute as much I hate to admit his cuteness because he’s a “stupidhead”.

Anyway, I digress.  We exchanged 360 COD:Ghosts for XBox One game and I think I am going to download Madden NFL 25 and all the other games we want right from the system.  Tonight, I am making my own profile and little avatar and that makes me happy.  So yay!  My very own XBOX ONE!!

Cruella Deville [Daily Prompt: Wicked Witch]

Write about evil: how you understand it (or don’t), what you think it means, or a way it’s manifested, either in the world at large or in your life.  Photographers, artists, poets: show us EVIL.

I used to believe in the innocence we all possessed and how pure we all could be.  A long, long time ago.  If you assumed it was in my adolescence, you would be correct.

As you grow older and you experience how much pain can be construed, all those beliefs you had a child seems like a far away in the distance fictional memory.

I don’t know if I understand evil in the sense that I know why it even has to exist, seriously but I have seen what it can do.  It isn’t the physical world that possesses it either.  People are mean.  They show us evil.  They are the examples that not even words can describe.

There are different evils too.  Some worse than others but all the same if you are participating in an action that hurts someone somewhere.  To me, evil is its least lethal form is just simply taking advantage of another person.  Looking at a person who has let their guard down and opened their soul to you.  Taking that precious gift without appreciation and diminishing it by your own selfish agenda.  That to me is evil.

No one likes an anti-bacterial, anti-itch spray on an open flesh wound.  And I say that because, when you open your heart to someone and you let your guard down, your heart is, figuratively speaking, exposed.  When someone hurts you deliberately or not even deliberately but takes that exposure for granted it burns, it stings and it makes you feel like the world is an evil place, in turn, stitching up your heart with a thicker thread.

Then of course, there are the people who kill, hurt children, adults, steal, lie, and cheat.  And the other evils that are considered more natural such as natural disasters, sickness and to some people, death.  I do believe all of what is here in this world has been created by us in some way, in some form and maybe not right now but over time.

So remember the world isn’t an evil place, it is you and I who can’t learn to love each other more than we love ourselves and until then, evil will grow until we destroy ourselves.  It won’t be the world’s fault.  It will be ours.

Madden NFL 25 [Daily Prompt: Google and Rescue Operation]

What was the last thing you searched for online? Why were you looking for it?

Since I have pre-ordered XBOX ONE, I was looking on Google to see if Madden was going to have a new game out for the new system and they did not disappoint.  I haven’t played Madden in some time now but I used to love it back in the day.

I am super excited about getting XBOX One because I never really had my own game systems, I mean Sega but hello?!  My brother had Playstations and I have the Wii but I hardly played it because I didn’t have the right games plus it didn’t feel the same playing on the Wii like it did on a playstation or xbox.

So yea, they will have it and I will get it.  Yay!
