People Misinterpret What They Don’t Understand

3d-people-misunderstanding-27754874

Another good post that I had to re share!

Ever been told you were different? Ever been told that you were a stranger? Have you ever been told that you don’t fit in? Do people spend extreme amounts of time discussing you and what they think of you?

If not, stick around.  People misinterpret what they don’t understand! They rather judge and come to their own conclusion about you or anything about you. This can be negative or positive. So if you’re doing the best you can at being you don’t worry because that is all that you can be.

You can make improvements but don’t change you at the core, only do so if it is wrong, as we all need improvement.

Don’t stress when your misunderstood, there is an essence about you that cannot be comprehended. I am not talking about having an alternative life but I am talking about existing the best way you can and being a great citizen. Making the choice to do well and be nice to those around you.

Continue to live and define who you are regardless if people understand you. Never look for the acceptance of people because sometimes that can be too much.  Sometimes you can never be enough for people, so don’t look to please them.

Be sure in the fact that them not understanding you is no fault of your own.

I just wanted to offer a few words of wisdom. These words had been flowing around in my head.  As always thanks for reading!

 

Writing for Numbers…………………

comment-follower-stats

This was a post I did years ago I thought it was still relevant today had to repost.

In a world filled with click bait, lie’s and copy cats, I find myself asking the question do people really care what I talk about? Does the fact that I write according my to my own schedule really matter? Does the content have substance?

Have I began to write for numbers? You know, write for views? Am I a view junky?

The answer is yes and no. I admit I do look at my stats and pay attention to what people like the most.  I do see a pattern.  In no way do I want to jeopardize my feelings or views on a subject just so I can get views.

I used to share my writings on Facebook, which allowed me to have a larger audience but I found that people weren’t really paying attention. I would have to beg people I considered friends just to read my content.  I got to the point where I said I will not share content through this medium but I will make it available to those who would want to see it via a link. That will show me if people really cared.

I must share with you all that in the amount of time that I have had this blog that it has continued to grow. It means that I have a voice and that people are enjoying the content that I write.  I don’t write frequently because I believe in having content that provokes deep thought as it relates to gaming, literature and life.

. I admit it is a challenge trying to establish, maintain and exist among such talent here on WordPress.com. However, I believe that if you write from the heart and are sincere in what you believe that the people will follow you. I can attest to this fact, as I now I am nearing 136 followers. For some people this maybe miniscule number but for me this is no small accomplishment. I’d rather go slow and gain the trust and interest of people than to rush and offer nothing different from the millions and millions of people that write on here every day.

I am grateful for my place here on WordPress and I am grateful to my fellow bloggers who have reached out to me and have shared my content with others. I can never allow numbers to stop me, I hope you will not either. Remain encouraged regardless of what your stat pages shows, keep writing and know that your audience is on the way to you if you remain consistent in your ability to engage them.

Never take numbers as an indicator per say but keep going. I am not saying be ignorant to the numbers I am saying if you keep working hard in the paint, when you lift your head up you will find you’re not alone in the paint anymore!

 

To my fellow writer’s, bloggers, followers, friends, or anyone in general, never compromise in what it is that you believe and what you want to accomplish! Please don’t only write for numbers but let it be in your heart!

Thanks for reading and make sure to follow, comment and share!

Dear Microsoft, what are you doing?

Lately Microsoft has been the talk of the town with the Xbox One not having as many exclusives as Sony. With most of the games going to pc, gamers are on edge.  Seems like they are not caring as much as they should. Console gamers don’t care about being able to play anywhere but on their consoles.

Games are getting canceled left and right. I believe this all started with E3 when the Xbox one was first announced. There message was confusing and DRM practices made people dislike them. They haven’t regained their audience as PS4 has won the console race.

At this moment Microsoft is moving around like a chicken with its head cut off. Sure they may have some hidden games in development which they may reveal at this E3 but until then it feels like they have lost their footing. The Xbox division needs to realize that gamers want games, not just UI system updates.

I feel that Microsoft was its best during the days of the original Xbox . The system was very powerful and had a ton of games to boot. But most of all their message was clear and precise.

Xbox is my system of choice and I hope that they get their act together before its too late.

What’s your system of choice? What do you think of Microsoft’s current direction? As always follow, like and comment!

 

 

Emotional Maturity vs Immaturity

Hi all! I wanted to explore maturity and video games. Keep in mind, these are just my thoughts and feelings on the matter. You are welcome to disagree! With that said get to reading!

So do we grow up with age or do we just get older? Its hard to imagine emotional maturity having  anything to do with video games but it does. How you may ask? If one is not mature emotionally, it affects ones  ability to play and their choices as it relates to choosing a particular video game.  Immature gamers see through the lens of immaturity. For example, the comment is always being made that Nintendo is for kids when in actuality Nintendo has broaden their audience and has changed their message to appeal to the masses.

Do games grow up with us or do we grow up with games ? Timeless treasures such as Zelda and Mario have stood the test of time. But they have been accused of not growing up. Its the same formula iteration after iteration. But that’s what works.  Zelda Breath of the Wild is one of the most beautiful satisfying games ever created. An immature mind would only see how kiddy Nintendo is.

How important is emotional maturity when it comes to gaming? Does it matter if one is immature? As always be sure to follow, like and comment.

Against All Odds: The struggle of a writer

Image result for writing

Hi, all! I finally got the nerve to write again. It’s been about four months. Let’s see…. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. There is no time like the present. Not to mention how time is flying.  It took me some time to think about if I should write on this topic or not. I’m really putting myself out there.   After all this has been my experience.  The ability to land a writing job had been a dream of mines since forever.  Writing has always been second nature to me. Which is why I majored in English in college.  I was sold on the dream of going to college and how bright my future would be.  While in college I excelled, joining various clubs and organizations and even made the dean’s list multiple times. 

       The problem was when I hit the real world. There is so much competition and not to mention the need to have experience.  That makes me feel like my education was a waste. I know that this is not the case because it has prepared me to think critically and helped me to be more precise. I can’t help but to think that I have so much to offer the world.  This seems to be the case of the English majors that I have spoken to.  I know this is just temporary but it feels like forever. Unlike the classic case of writers block this block doesn’t seem to be going away.  If you are one of the people going through this. Keep your head up and keep writing.
