I can only apologise for the neglectful dereliction of duty on my supposed “gaming” blog at the moment. Life has become one Tetris like entity, as blocks of random and often I’ll fitting pieces continue to drop, stacking into an increasingly precarious tower. It just feels like there’s a flattening pressure rearing down on me like a train wearing lead high heels. Still, it’s structural rigidity is starting to diminish as the days go by and the burdening torture of pregnancy that cripples my girlfriend on a daily basis allows me to apply rigorous humility to my burgeoning problems, which by comparison are as important as nipples are on men. I can at least begin to loosen the bonds of encumbrance by finally preparing for my theory driving test, as I’ve finally martialed enough confidence as well as knowledge to take it. Well at least book an appointment for a few weeks time at least. Believe me I haven’t studied this hard since I was in school and if I’m honest I didn’t study then! Now I find my evenings are congested with complex hieroglyphics that are road signs, isolating potential hazards, conjectural scenarios and how to deal with specific instances. Battling randomly generated questions I’ve forgotten the answers too, the routine gesticulation and robust gestural signals you’re supposed know to indicate if you’re turning left, right or round and round the garden like a teddy bear, that defer all manner of meanings I can’t comprehend because my heads about to explode!
But I guess there is a loose gaming association when it comes to applying myself to learn. In a game I won’t give up; I’m determined, capable and exert an inexhaustible perseverance and belief that eventually I’ll succeed. Of course I swear a lot on my way to success but that’s merely a formality in the annals of victory. And I think we all have an inert capability to overcome any adversity, to challenge ourselves and earn those achievements/trophies. The gold trophies that I’ll hopefully receive for passing both the theory and practical tests, along with the various bronze and silver ones I’ve accumulated as I’ve progressed as a driver will all culminate in a beautiful, albeit figurative platinum. And I didn’t even lower the difficulty.
