Continuing my nostalgia for the 80's I've got my Activision Collection playing in the background and I've been fooling around with old Atari games. It's strange that I have such a connection for a period that, while I technically lived through, I don't remember at all. I mean I have some memories of the 80's, but only the later parts of the decade. Certainly nothing from '83. I never even had an Atari, although my friend Malik who'se parents didn't love videogames had one so I can at least say that I played it with SOME regularity during my childhood, though he mostly only liked Pole Position and Dig Dug.
I remain convinced that the 80's marked the end of sincerity.
I'm getting lonely again. It comes and goes with me but now that college is ending and I've made like a grand total of one friend I am starting to feel it again. I'm not sure why it's worked out this way, I guess it's just that I have little interest in socializing and no interest in partying, not to mention that I live off campus. Maybe I'm just annoying and corny like I've been told so many times. It'll pass in time but it's annoying. I should get back into a bunch of different activities I used to do but the truth of the matter is that I just am not interested in much in the way of city stuff. I think I really am done living in an Urban area, at least for awhile, after I finish college.
