When I saw the Starcraft II: WOL trailer at the age of 17 back in 2007 or so, I had no idea the game would play that big a role in my life. That was my final year of high school. Now here I am at 31 and we see the people we worshipped at one point moving on with their lives and starting families.
Such is life. I don't know if there is anyone here who remembers me, but the financial side of things has come together more than I could have ever imagined in the past few years and maybe it's better that I got out of esports. It took a long time but now I'm in a position to buy a decently-sized mid western American suburban home. I might try to get back in to professional gaming if I have the capital to invest in something like that. Maybe consider something like what TakeTV is doing, but even then I am not 100% gung-ho guaranteed going to do it.
There was a time when I think I was working towards potentially becoming a full time streamer. IRL stuff in downtown Taipei, but one reason I got out was the amount of intrusiveness to my personal life that I was beginning to experience. I think I could pretty easily become a full time streamer if I wanted to, but my goal has always been to obtain a green card in Taiwan first, then try the full-time streamer route. Let's see how that goes.
