you are such a gamer, invoker. you touch so much on games on your discussions. it is truly the fad of the young ones, these days. i can see that the internet cafes are filled with young gamers just like you. even at home, my two boys are always doing games when they have spare time at all. my two boys are both mature ones considering their ages of 20 and 28. just do not leave behind your studies, kid. your future depends highly on how you do it in school today. your spare time to do gaming will have to be after the school requirements have all been met. i mean you well, invoker. at my age of late '50's you should understand me. after all, we are both filipinos and we feel the same way culturewise. good luck in your undertakings.
