So uh... once upon a time, when I was in high school, I used to play a game called "In the Groove", which was honestly a DDR knock-off, but I loved it because it gave me a challenge and it was always breaking new ceilings of difficulty with the community based charts. And because of my love of the game and how skilled I was getting, I thought it would be a great idea to start a YouTube Channel of me getting relatively decent scores. Eventually, I stopped doing this for two reasons: 1.) my pad had kicked the bucket after 5 years of constant use (and of course, RedOctane went out of business, so no replacement options) and 2.) I was entering college and playing (AND COMPETING IN) another music game called DJ Max Technika.
And then four and a half years of college happened and that thing of being able to really dedicate yourself to a game? Yeah, that kind of stopped for me. I couldn't really do anything as hardcore anymore without letting it affect my grades and also, at the start of my Freshman year of college, I started dating my current boyfriend (we've been together for over 4 years now) so that started taking precedent.
So, I'm out of college now with a career in marketing/journalism (essentially) and I figured, "Well, I have a decent paycheck now, I have free time on my hands, and I want to do something active that isn't the typical gym norm". I've gained about 30 pounds from the start of college to now (thanks, burritos) mostly because I had conformed to sitting on my ass, doing homework and being on my computer constantly.
My thought process was, a couple of days ago, "Why don't I get back into DDR? I still have the skill to play and it'd be fun to finally do again."
So I'm going to attempt to do videos at an arcade I used to frequent a lot. I'm just nervous because I haven't done this in a very long time and I don't want to see myself getting frustrated if I'm not getting Perfects on everything or if I'm having just an off day, or god forbid, I'm rusty. I'll probably post the channel up when it's ready and stuff. Hope I'll do okay tomorrow. Probably will. Eh. *nervous chuckle*
