Abnormal Heart

This is a long story about me, but I’m going to simplify it.

I was an innocent and pure boy when my childhood, just like other children. I trusted everyone and everything; I believed everyone is virtuous and honest. I liked to go outside to play with my friends, and keep smiling all day. That was me, a kind child. I was born in 1998, my hometown was poorer than some south cities in that time; my parents also had low wages. My dad was a playful boy when he was young, enjoyed break dance and got many awards, he liked play TV games with my cousin after he married with my mom. That was a specific time, rapid economic growth and development of technology after China reformed and opened, people was able to buy a Personal-Computer

It was an unprecedented concept for me, even for all normal citizens. I enjoyed searching music and pictures, it made my life colorful. I touched with online games when grade 2, once touched it can hardly stop. I know a grade 2 student is too young to play online games, but it brought fun to me, more interesting than playing outside with friends.

Online games changed my life permanently. It happened to me——a small boy.

I can remember that was 2006, I played online games while night at an Eve of Chinese New Year ——the most important festival/day in China, it was so fascinating that I can’t stop playing it. I got an idea: put money into games, buying others higher level game account. When a new month started, I got 200 RMB for lunch, but I was going to use this money for games. I faked a story about I dropped money on taxi and told my parents. Successfully, I kept these 2 pieces of Holly-Red-Paper and hid in my bag. In a weekend, I found a man who was going to sold his high-level game account, it was so beckoning! “That’s what I want!” I thought. I chatted with him on QQ. “I have spent much money on this account, but I don’t have enough time play anymore. You just give me a Game-Point -Card equal to 100RMB. It’s a friendship-price, my friend. My phone number is XXXX-XXXXXXXX, you may call me now.” he typed on

    I wasn’t the most talkative person in college. I am an introvert, but Pokémon go helped me understand people through a common topic. If you don’t know someone you can just talk about your favorite Pokémon. You can also take cute photos with Pokémon and share them online. I see Pokémon Go being really successful in the next few years I am really glad that this game was invented because without it, I would still be playing console games in my room by myself without talking to anyone around the…

    I used to play with my group of friends online. We would always have a good time playing and it helped me express myself more. However, endless hours of playing videogames can only mean that homework is not getting done. I learned the hard way that videogames were bad for me; when I got a paper back with a 50% written on red ink in it. Never again did I play videogames for such high amounts of time.…

    I felt ripped off getting a laptop as my only Christmas and birthday present for that year.

My Dad finally broke after almost a year of me asking and we had the internet for the first time. My Dad thought It was a waste of money.…

    They introduced me to PC gaming, Runescape which incased slaying dragons, and Maple story a 2-D side scroller that had a great community at the time. When we got home we would all hop on the computer together and play. One of the greatest things about video games is all the people you meet, it grants perspective on other parts of the world. I made friends with another boy named Nick who is the same age as me when I was 8 who lived in Alberta (I still talk to him every now and then). I would often try new games with another friend named Ali, he was a lot older than me around 8 years older and he lived in Dubai.…

    The Money Menace I am Jerald Griffith, just a normal seventeen year old boy who lives in Michigan. It is 2012 and I have two annoying younger sisters and a twenty year old brother. My brother is constantly bragging that he has a ton of money so I have decided that on my eighteenth birthday I am getting a lottery ticket; luckily my birthday is on June seventh and it is May twenty-third so I only need to wait fifteen more long, painstaking days. Although the chances of winning the lottery are about one in fourteen million, I believe that I could win because in the last four years I have won two cars, seven bikes, and a trampoline, all of which I sold. With the money I bought a million dollar machine that was one sale for one-hundred and twenty-five thousand dollars, exactly the amount I had.…

    He wasn’t even living at home most nights and not coming to school, my friends and I had lost almost all our connection until he came over one Saturday night with some assholes. They rolled up to my house like they owned the place flashing off their new clothing, expensive shoes, and accessories. Begley claimed that he had just went on a $2,000 shopping spree after making a lot of money from selling dope. The chiseler looked like himself again with that cocky smile and know it all attitude, he was a bad-ass again and everyone loved it. He tossed me a pair of expensive Evoshield socks that he said wouldn’t fit him and I must say they’re still the nicest socks I’ve ever owned.…
