I think you know you’re at a crossroads in your life when you start making ridiculous concessions to accommodate video games. I find that I now have to discipline myself into doing other things before I reward myself with some Guitar Hero. This game has taken an unnatural hold on my life. Worse yet, I’m treating myself like a spoiled little child. I’m not doing anything before I play GH.

I keep telling myself that I’ll do whatever I have to do after my arm cramps up from too much GH. Problem is, I’m not cramping up anymore. And if I do, I’m just fighting through it. I’m so detached from society right now that I don’t even know who Hannah Montana is. I don’t even recognize myself any more.

It gets worse though. Today, I woke up and saw this on my guitar:

That’s the symbol for anarchy people. I don’t remember putting that on there. Am I really becoming an anarchist? And note all the stars around it. As if to say, not only do I support anarchy, but I really, really like it, so I’m going to add some orange stars because orange is my favorite color and stars are my favorite gaseous objects. Weird, isn’t it?

Then I looked at my computer, it was already on and playing this:

Yeah, it was on easy, but I don’t remember ever completing that song at 100%… I’m starting to think I might have a problem…

yes, you do have a problem, jon. and i think it's contagious. i dedicated an hour and a half to downloading this video that, at the end of that time said it was no longer available anymore. it's clear that i have a problem, too.

Re: Cadiz12's comment - ouch.
Re: symbols - when one shows up on your arm, then it's time to worry.

I'm assuming you already have one on the back of your neck. ... You *have* checked, right? Because if it shows up on the guitar before it hits your neck, well...

You better check.
