Rated E for everyone…’til 10 and up
I was born around the time where my mother was into technology so I was always surrounded by it. It began in Baltimore, Maryland when my mother worked for a tech company called Prometric. The first game I played was “Day in the life of a sponge,” a different Spongebob mini-games. I took him shopping and made Krabby Patties. Seeing the “You win” screen felt so satisfying — I accomplished something. The first time you cook and you like it, you cook more. The first time you drive and someone likes your driving, you drive more. The first time you play a game and have the satisfaction of winning, you wanna play more. So, I played more. Now my gaming life is more advanced. With age comes experience so I’ve gotten better, and more technology has come out since the V-Smile. My mom didn’t expect me to want to play so much as I do. She’s been yelling at me to “grow out of it.” She calls it “childish.” Winning kept me going, but now there’s something about video games you can’t get in the real world. In real life, the biggest challenge you can overcome is probably your student loan debt. In a video game, the biggest challenge you can overcome is probably killing a god. I’ve killed a lot of gods. How do you think it feels?
Rated M for Mature…except for the too Mature
I was bored during online classes one day, scrolling through TikTok, and saw a video of a person carving a candle. I instantly thought, I have a knife and a candle so why not give it a shot. I have nothing to lose. I ended up carving a bunch of runestones on it from one of my favorite games. I was happy because it came out surprisingly well. One time I grabbed a pair of candles and I turned them into nunchucks. It was a super satisfying hobby. I enjoyed watching the candle wax fall on the floor and also looking at a finished product that I made. When you look at a child you don’t expect them to do something completely out of their age group. When you look at a child you expect toys, when you look at an adult you expect them to do something like building a model. But when you look at me, I do things that are considered hobbies for old people. For a while, it was carving candles.
Rated R 21+
A lot like Candle Carving I never really “got into it” I just kinda saw a shaker sitting on my countertop and decided that it was something I was interested in. If I recall my first drink was a really sweet jasmine tea with some other ingredients. It was called Jasmine cloud because of how white the top of the drink was. It made me happy to see other people enjoying my drink, so I just kept making more and more drinks for everyone to enjoy! A lot of people tend to say the anybody underage should never even TOUCH a shaker, let alone use one. And yet here I am making drinks for all ages to enjoy.
Let it be known, that age should not stop you from doing what you love unless it’s illegal. No hobbies should have an age constrict, so don’t let some adult tell you you can’t do something simply because “it’s childish” or “It’s not meant for your age group.”
