The answer is: I am!
There I said it finally. I am 55 and I am a grandmother of 5, so many 5’s. I made this confession on twitter this week during a conversation with some other older gamers. It felt natural and good to finally say it. I’ve been wanting to be more authentic to myself and I want to be able to talk about things like my grandkids. So yes, I am 55, I am a gamer, an original gamer who played pong in her living room while skipping work because it was so addictive at the time. I find that I am the oldest person in most groups and I’m hoping to find others who are also in their 50’s. I can’t be the only one. Age is only a number, it does not define who we are and what we are capable of doing. I’ve seen and done a lot in my life and I hope to share some of my experiences with others.
So this week has not had much gaming. My father was released from the hospital on Sunday and we returned to his house near Austin on Monday. I’m the caregiver at the moment for him and his wife. I’m playing some easy going games like Hearthstone and FTL this week but nothing I can record. Both of these games can be found on the iPad too. I find that I’m missing the recordings more than I thought I would. I’ve been considering a few vlogs and some real life video in the meantime. Check out the cute horse and foal video I put up this week. These horses belong to my sister.
I pre-ordered Wildstar and look forward to playing it in beta soon. I’m also pre-ordering Evolve, a multiplayer co-op game for 5 people. I plan to do a game giveaway this week so look for that.
Here’s a little bonus for you, this is me with the five little people in my life (Three boys, two girls) my loves, my angels!!
Have a great weekend ~ LadyM
