A reflection and an epiphany

Looking back on this entry I wrote, I began to ask myself if Granado Espada was worth pursuing or not. I have a few friends who left the game for good or for a short while. During my downtime, I pursued new interests such as trying Dungeons & Dragons and even blogging my adventures of being a spear-wielding centaur. Other PC games invaded me as well, namely The Last Remnant and Plants Vs Zombies. I always wanted to get some ABS searches or get more G Points but looks like my money got caught on others things such as other indulgences and tempting food.

I check updates through one of the tabs I placed. It's nice to see these people persevere and even provide updates. I guess my spirit came back to play GE because of kGE's latest version. I was intrigued how the story is unfolding so far and I'd like to witness it myself. However, it was through this song that really lifted my spirits:

It's the climb!

Through this song, I could see myself struggling to make it to Expert. It's a long journey, from where I'm at. It could take longer, since I have other interests to pursue. Thinking being an Expert makes it seem impossible. But it's the drive and the "climb" I'm taking to make it there. As the lyrics say:

There's always going to be another mountain
Opportunities I get to play the game
I'm always going to want to make it move
Of course, I want to make progress
Always going to be an uphill battle,
It's a constant struggle to get EXP
Sometimes you going to have to lose,
There are times I won't make the most of it
Ain't about how fast I get there,
Doesn't matter how fast I get EXP
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's not about hitting Expert
It's the climb
My drive to continue on!

The italicized text shows the connection between the lyrics and what I'm going and what I should go through! This is becoming an emotional journey now. I'll continue going forward, with out without help. My friends, I hope you reading this. I finally found my drive... No... My climb to Expert! To experience more of Granado Espada!
