When I was in highschool, I wasn’t a gamer. I never owned a gaming console before the PS2 I got almost toward the end of the system’s lifecylce. Pre-uni, my encounters with PC games were few and far between, and invariably on somebody else’s computer.
I had two main pastimes back then. One was reading books, the other — listening to music.
Never both at the same time, you understand. No, reading would interfere with the serious business that listening to music was.
