    Default Arcade

    I was viewing my Profile Page tonight, and very sadly noted that I only have 4 highscores left in my Arcade stats. I started out with 10.

    Now the reason this makes me sad is because I worked pretty damn hard to earn those....maybe these games in the Arcade come easy to a lot of you, but I'm just not that fast (and no, it's not because I'm getting older as my kids try to insist) and it's not just from brain fog, it's because ever since that first Pong game and Asteroids game came out ages ago, I simply do not keep up with fast moving objects, nor do I want to. So that's why I politely chose the 'easy' games...you know Cat Bowling, and 'Island Mini-Golf', the no-brainers. It made me feel pretty good to know I could knock over a bunch of cats with a bowling ball, or play golf on Gilligan's Island, and actually be a part of the Arcade. But no more. I am sadly exiting the fun Arcade because I can no longer stand receiving Private Messages that tell me my High Score has just been beaten, yet again. Sort of feels like it's adding insult to injury.

    So I bid you farewell Arcade...thanks for the fun times you brought me...thanks for giving me some happy moments of triumph...thanks for the memories.

    Oh, and to those of you who find your High Scores constantly being beaten by the Arcade-obsessed bunch on this site that must beat every single high score, I kindly suggest, if you haven't already done so, that you delete all the Private Messages about your beaten High Scores in your inbox. Mine got full pretty quickly.

    Lori, Don't worry they all cheat anyway. We all know you got your scores fair and square.
    But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

    Take Care,
    Becky

    You really aren't qualified to say whether I've given up too easily, Gina...since you have no idea how many hours I've spent in the arcade, or how many games I've played and won my championships back over and over again.

    I NEVER give up too easily at anything...or else I wouldn't be here after 27 years with Lupus. If there's one thing I am NOT, it's a quitter.

    I signed up as a volunteer for Meal on Wheels this week to help deliver meals to the elderly and disabled citizens in my area, and I realized that some of my daytime obligations would need to be moved to my evenings. I decided that posting here on the forum in the evenings and helping others with their questions is a better use of my time than playing games.

    My health is also much more important to me, and I decided that having muscle spasms in my arms and shoulders and cramping fingers and aching wrists were not a good thing for my Lupus. Just not worth it. I'd rather spend my time contributing to humanity.

    It's definitely not quitting...I call it bowing out gracefully...
