Wolf’s Wicked Words: Time Is Of The Essence
You know that feeling.
The warm enclosure of sunlight engulfing your skin. The sweet tang of a cold perspiring glass against the skin of you hand containing that of your favourite soft drink while your thoughts are only captivated by the sheer relaxed mood you find yourself in. All the worries of the world that long ago slid off your shoulders are now only to be found in the abysmal depths of city life. You are completely calm and needn’t worry about a thing while your ultimate state of zen is undisturbed by that of work, studies and household problems.

If you are not the outdoors-y type, you may prefer a movie, book or game of your choosing while knocking back a similar perspiring glass or hot beverage – depending on the setting your climate is currently set to.
Yes, this is the life.
Actually, no it isn’t.
It is exam time and little mercy is to be had in regards to free time and precious gaming instances. The thought that captivates my mind without any written or signature-bearing consent is that this will only get worse in the year and rest of our lives life to come, where death will be the only release. Only then will we be left to our own devices with the much needed time for gaming.
What is that I hear you asking? “Rudolf, why so glum? Of course, exam time is that of studying and paving a future for yourself. Don’t be disheartened by the temporal nature and temporary absence of gaming.”
While I’m inclined to agree with our lovely readers; I’m going to stop you there. Whenever I avert my eyes to the left-hand side of my current location, I see a review copy of Resident Evil Revelations waiting to be played further. I am halfway there, but the cruel and twisted ironies of life are that of exams and power-outages. What a lovely coupling of two horrors.
All of that aside, I really do feel a sense of threat nowadays when gaming is involved. Proof of that will be my lack of opinions regarding the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. I just don’t have the sufficient energy to worry about that now, which is really a big deal for me, because I genuinely care about the future of gaming. It is a hobby and entertainment medium, BUT it is also something I feel very compassionate about. It is an element to help me through all the aspects in my life. I will stop there; no need to run away from the complain train.
I MUST make time for games in equal measure than that of studying. A balance must be maintained. One cannot solely play games each and every day for the entirety of the whole day, but the same can be said in regards to studying. You’ll go crazy either way, or if you don’t end up shooting through the walls of a local care centre for the elderly, you’ll just be over it after a while.
Just as it is a sin to take months to finish a book.
I’ll leave you with this I’ve read from someone of Twitter: “You may never say that there are too many books. There just isn’t enough time.”
Take this into account with games and pretty much everything you feel passionate about. I’ve learned that the hard way, believe me. (I walk with those regrets everyday.)
