I work in a school, so my last day of work for this month was the 17th. At the end of the day the teacher I work for gave me a gift in a little red bag. I didn't check what it was until after she had left, but it turned out to be a $25 gift certificate to GameStop!
I was pleasantly surprised and I found myself asking "How did she know?!" I don't recall telling her much about my habits since I'm usually not quick to announce them, though at one point I may have said something like "I just bought an Xbox 360." Knowing her, she may have also thought: "He's 23 -- he plays video games." Such heuristics obviously have the potential to be wrong, but not in this case.
I decided I wanted to use this on something actually good. I ended up getting Lost Odyssey, since I have heard so many good things about it from people around here whose opinions I value, and BioShock, since it was only $10 and I had some space left on the card.
Haven't gotten to play either yet and I'm not even sure when I will. When I was younger there were so many games I wanted to play but I didn't have the money to buy them. Now, I don't even have that much money, but it feels like I keep getting more games than I have time to play.
