There are millions of people out there in the world that play the original Ninendo games. I happen to be one of those fantastic one-of-a-kind female nerds. I make believe life is great and that there is a fiancé in the making and he is willing to play Jeopardy with me on my dusty NES system. If Tucson could build me such a life. The rest of my life is ridden with magazine elixers and underwear hanging on a fan after being handwashed (no I am not a third world child laborist). I’ll just entertain the rest of my year with mirages of myself as a new stage of my life.
Am I a leech, feeding off of others? I don’t need you all the time to function, but when you are around I experience a new world. This can apply to anybody. People as a catalyst of interaction and resource for delivering behavior not possible when isolated- a key to the workings of society and the function of individuals. I’m no sociologist, but it’s inescapable to be affected by others. I am all myself, but cannot remove myself from a position (where moving to a new position is still a position).
