Fudge! Fudge! Fudge! Music Saved Me (Non-Gaming Related)

As stated in the title, this is a non-gaming related post, so I don�t know if anyone is going to be interested, but oh well, I�ll give it a shot.

This week has been awful for me. Here are some of the things that have gone wrong: I failed my French midterm, my adviser was a bitch to me, the weather is horrible here in New York, I�ve been sick for the past two weeks, and I�m broke. Today wasn�t any different. I had to go to the registrar office only to be told some disappointing news, not only that, but my metro card ran out. I�m so confused about everything � what am I going to do with my life, how the hell am I going to make a living. Anyway, I decided to skip my lecture class today and go home.

As I was making my way down the subway, I realized I left my iPod home. Music is the only thing that can calm me down, and I left my comfort device at home, darn the luck! Anyway, as I was walking towards the middle of the platform I heard a Violin being played. I saw a blonde hair women and a dark hair man playing the guitar. I stood there listing to them for a good ten minutes before I whipped my camera out.

Like I said, this day, or should I say semester, has been horrible; filled with disappointments, but the moment I saw these performers I forgot about my problems and calmed down. I�m still worried about everything, but I have a bit more of an optimistic outlook on it. I�ve decided to share these performers with Dtoid, but I don�t know if you guys are interested in anything non-gaming related, so let me know in the comments, or I�ll wait to see if this is a failtoid in the recaps.

A Small Thank You

I started a blog at this very site to let some of my feelings out. In some way Destructoid was therapy for me. I write about everything from my mother, past relationships, financial situations, friends, hipsters, school, etc. This is done not for sympathy, but as a way to expresses myself. My financial situation is a mess and I have no idea how I�m going to make a living, but writing and reading some of the response from great users have bought a wealth of positiveness to my life; It really doesn�t have to be anything big, but a simple comment of appreciation is enough to fill my heart with joy. It�s strange writing this, but joining this community has been the best thing I've ever done, well, second best thing; getting laid is pretty cool. What I�m trying to say here is thank you. Thank you for this awesome community. Thank you for reading. Thank you for commenting. Thank you for being awesome.

A big thanks goes to falsenipple for the header!
