Many people blame parents and society for their troubles. However, once we become adults, it is time to realize that our parents have done the best that they knew how. Furthermore, once one becomes an adult, he/she must look beyond the parental/familial purview and establish his/her sense of self, realization, and life. It is also futile to continue to blame society for one's woes. Do you agree that many people continue to blame parents and society in order to avoid assuming responsibility for their own lives?
Mine is still there, but the big field out back, the one with the fantastic fort (empty car body) on it, is gone. Turned into 3 more houses now, with the magic of the back lot gone forever. The apple tree a young boy fell out of is still there, but the tree house (small flat platform) is gone. The giant Boxelder trees in the front are long gone as well.
I conquered space when I was only 15.... I was probably more like 13 now that I think about it. You attempted it as a full grown adult. The fact that I could do what you did as not only a child, but a female, pretty much declares me the superior alien slayer.
I could hold my own at Space Invaders, but Asteroids was my game. I could play as long as I wanted on a single quarter and give the game to someone else with a dozen ships saved up when I grew bored. Simpler times.
I didn't like asteroids. I felt trapped... the little guy just sat there in the middle of every thing, turning round and round like a dog chasing its tail. I like space invaders... centipede... kaboom, yeah, good times.
