Why I Write About Games

"There’s something wrong with your heart."

Around a year ago I was told this at a routine check up at the local doctor’s office.

Great article, hits pretty close to home with me. Right now I'm going through a series of tests to determine whether or not I have something called "marfans syndrome". It's a connective tissue disorder that can cause heart problems, most notably a ruptured aortic root. I'm not allowed to play sports anymore due to the chance of physical stress harming my heart, but writing about games is keeping me busy in the meantime. And since I'm only 16 and still in school, I too get told that I shouldn't waste my life writing about gaming. Very frustrating stuff, but I'm glad you're doing okay. Keep up the great work!!

Very inspirational story. It reminds us that life is too short to spend it being unhappy. Even if you're not lucky enough to land yourself a job doing what you love, spend time doing what you love anyway.

Great read, Sebastian!
