Earlier today I was feeling a bit nostalgic and decided to waste a few moments of my life by reading some of my older blog posts. I randomly selected March 2011 the archives tab and dove in.
Kids, on March 27th, 2011 I was dumping out all of my games from boxes and storage bins and shelving them in my new DVD tower. When all was said and done, it looked like this:
Now, besides the obvious differences compared to the state of the tower today (like the lack of shelving above the tower, the location of the Zelda poster, etc) you may notice a dark cubby towards the bottom. Don’t be alarmed, that is just something people commonly refer to as “empty space”. I remember being SO extremely disappointed by this empty space and the fact that I didn’t have enough games to fill the entire thing up that my gamer ego took a beating.
But today, as I type this, I laugh. I laugh a maniacal laughter for I would give my right ovary to have the tower be as organized and sexy as it was five and a half months ago. Now, it just kind of looks like I stood in front of the cabinet and barfed games out of my mouth.
That would be an awesome talent, wouldn’t it?
Anyway, here’s the tower of today:
And as if that wasn’t enough, I now have an “overflow” cabinet.
Yepppp. And as soon as that fills up, I’m completely out of room! Wouldn’t it be ironic if I had to resort to using bins again?
….that thought makes me want to cry, actually.
