What was the happiest moment of your life, TC?
Going to legoland for the first time a few days after it opened. Loved every minute of it and didn't want to leave. Everything was awesome.
It's probably whenever I buy a new console, aside from those moments, I can't really think of a moment where I've experienced real joy.
The good and bad moments of my life have all just blurred together into a hodgepodge of continuous, pointless existence. I don't feel like anything stands out one way or another.
I don't really have a happiest moment, but the thing that I did that made me the happiest would have been drinking coffee before sunrise while watching the ocean on the beaches of Whidbey Island. I also really liked walking around and driving on the northern end of the island (almost never went to the southern portion). I haven't been there for almost nine years and I've yet to find a more beautiful place.
Maybe the second half of 2011. Played a handful of great video games, my first real experience playing together from my friends from school as well. We made stupid lewd jokes at school and in-game too and trying to do that now just isn't as fun. At that point I still enjoyed anime more even though I didn't watch that many good shows. You could say I was just into enough escapism to dull the boring reality of existence. 2012 was tougher but I still had that one damn game, it was powercreeped and imbalanced to become unplayable the next couple of years though. The game was a derpy fighter and there's no real substitute for it unlike MOBAs and generic MMOs, and most of my friends since then have left me too.
Of course I guess if there's really something like VR or AI anytime soon that would be an improvement, I dunno.
