It's finally over!

- I can’t believe I survived this game:
And of course, the people that were there with me in this game throughout (in order of appearance in the game):
If you ever think about putting yourself through something like this, really think about it first and decide if it’s really worth it to do so. Here is my story:
As fun as this game was, this isn’t exactly an experience I want to put myself through ever again. Throughout the game, I battled a cold, long nights, brutal commutes, and pushed myself to a near breaking point. I joined with a few of my friends hoping to have a game amongst friends, and what I ended up getting was that although I’ve made new friends along the way, I was in for the most brutal game I have ever come across in all my years on Tengaged. Only 1 person died the entire game and the number of comments skyrocketed quickly, and for a while, I was beginning to feel like this game would have been the one to do me in. During the game, I consumed 28 cups of coffee, 8 cans of Monster energy drinks, and tried just about every tactic I had up my sleeve to be there to talk wherever I could whenever I could. And yes, I know that it sounds embarrassing, and it probably is, but considering I didn’t use multis in the slightest and got to the end through sheer effort, I think it all evened out in the end.
But like I said, I had a lot of fun in that game. It was an experience I will never forget. So don’t make me feel bad for what I’ve done here. Don’t make me feel like I should have done something else. We all have our memories from Tengaged we want to keep, and this has become just the latest of my own. I know people didn’t always like each other, but I genuinely had a fun time talking to most of the cast. I found myself laughing irl at some of the conversations I was having, and I was enjoying myself more than I had all month so far.
So what’s next for me? Sleep, and lots of it! I need to catch up on the sleep I have lost throughout these past 8 nights. I’ll finally go back to using Skype again because after the 5th day change, I realized I couldn’t afford to have Skype on and needed to turn all my focus on the game. A lot of people outside the game ended up getting ignored, including those I have on Skype, those who I am in chats with on Skype, those who have spammed me here on Tengaged, and even my tribe mates in Survivor I couldn’t read too many messages from unless I got them in the Mail. I couldn’t pry my attention off the game any more than was absolutely necessary.
But with that said, if anyone did feel hurt because of any of that, I am genuinely sorry. On a normal week, I never elevate myself to the level I had to go to for this game and hopefully, I’ll never have to do that again. Thankfully, I can now use this following time to recover myself from this game, reconnect with my friends and tribe mates, and go see Infinity War on Thursday night. Hell, my birthday will be on Sunday, and that will be another thing to celebrate. In these next few days, I just need to focus on becoming me again and not the person I was in that game.
So farewell to game 183817. It was a fun game, and it was legendary, but I hope to never have to go through that level of effort again. For now, it is time for me to rest.
