And yes, I'll be the first to admit that playing the game has been a good waste of time.
It was the Spring Break of 2008, my junior year in high school, that my life changed a little because of a game.
I was lying in bed, dead bored, when my sister entered the room, rambunctious and enthusiastic.
I clicked on Create a Free Account and made a new user.
I had the hardest time trying to find a name for myself.
Her tiny fingers started to tap incessantly as she typed messages to those annoying Runescape people…My brother, Seth, and my sister, Samantha, both were obsessed with the game Runescape. O.o I only slept for a couple of hours before I woke up at 2 in the morning.
I always heard them discussing the terms relating to it, and it got annoying. I pushed the covers off of myself and proceeded to the dimly lit computer screen.The weather was too cold, and nothing motivated a person to want to do anything.My family was never one to go on any big trips or vacations, so I usually found myself moping around the house, wondering what to do.Also, I want people to realize that although you're talking to people online, you're still transferring feeling and emotion, both of which are very real.Sure, people can lie about who they are online, but they can do that in real life too. It's just a little piece of my life I felt like writing about." She laughed and slowly rolled off my now messy bed.
