Things tend to change an awful lot constantly now, but things used to be so much simpler. You've got in from a day at school with your friends, had your designated time with family and the evening is all yours.
You head into your room, put on your favourite CD and switch on your TV and console for some late night gaming fun with your friends. It's a whole bunch of simple pleasures, no stresses or worries about what you have going on in your life, they're all kinda irrelevant and you can just relax and have fun.
Remember being told that staying up all night and playing games with your friends was a waste of your time? Me too, ironic how I still look back on those nights as some of the best in my life (:
Here's to all my gaming buddies over the years, and all the opponents too, you guys rock :D
