Too dumb to do game design

game design coursesI really want to study game design in Melbourne but I’m have trouble with my VCE. I’m halfway through and getting low grades for all my subjects. I think it’s because I spend too much time playing video games instead of studying. My brother got into one of the game design courses in the city at a good college and I really want to do the same but I’m worried that I’m too dumb. When my brother was my age he was getting good grades at smart subjects like maths and physics, so I thought that I’d be the same as him. He could stay up all night gaming, go to school the next day and smash out As for his maths exams. Unfortunately my luck hasn’t been nearly as good.

I thought I’d be able to wing it with my natural smarts but now I’m discovering that I’m actually a dummy. I can’t do basic algebra and my teacher made me go down to the basic maths class. She also arranged a meeting with my mother and my mother said that I don’t get good grades because I don’t apply myself that. ‘How do you expect to get into an app development course if you don’t study?’ she said. I told her I was expecting to be naturally talented like my brother.

So now I’m torn between playing video games and doing my homework. I’m a bit addicted to them to be honest. How can teachers and parents possibly expect me to sit at a desk and read a boring old book when I could be living in a make-believe world having exciting adventures? When I do the game design course in Melbourne I’m going to turn homework tasks into video games. That way kids will definitely study and pass their VCE with flying colours.

Conveyancing and Children

movingIn retrospect, no one really ‘hates’ children, even though many claim to. After all, children are not constrained by race, ethnicity, cultural background, family or any of the things we usually judge humans with. They are universal. Thus, people who claim to ‘hate’ children are actually just objecting to their shared behaviours: rudeness, loud voices, a lack of inhibitions and a general absence of the ability to make decent conversations.

Thus, I object to the shared behaviours of nearly all children. In fact, I strongly object more than most, which I acknowledge as a personal weakness as there are many who can handle children with no issues whatsoever. It has cost me, in the past. I used to be a conveyancer. Melbourne has many houses and properties I need of conveyancing, and no doubt they continue to be conveyed without me. I became a liability in the office whenever clients brought their children, which I must note, they were at liberty to do. We even had a designated play area with various tools of education, such as that strange device with beads and very long pieces of thin metal for children to…do whatever it is they do with such a device. However, sometimes in my conveyancing duties, parents would bring their children of varying ages into the room. The children would proceed to make sounds of an unpleasant tone and timbre, possibly indicating want or need. I would object, and the clients would not be pleased. Those are the broad stroke details of why I left that particular line of work.

Melbourne deserves conveyancing solicitors who are more tolerant of all clientele, and not just those who can compose themselves with decorum and respect of the great pursuit of property transfers. In retrospect, perhaps I am experiencing difficulty letting go of my previous vocation. However, I cannot return. I must find my own way, a way without the possibility of the child contact that irks me so. Perhaps I can work from home.
