Hey guys, so I haven’t posted here in a few days or so. But that’s because I graduated, had a graduation party, and have just been taking time for myself. And my mom came to me yesterday and talked to me, because she knows that I’ve wanted a Switch for a long time time. And she just questioned me, now that I’m an official adult (18 and done with school), knowing that I’d make my own decisions for here on. And she knows getting a Switch is my top priority.
Now, with the money I have from graduation congratulations cards, I now have $600+ saved up personally. So I can totally afford it myself. But my mom posed the question if I really need it. And tbh, no. But I feel like after all the shit I went through in my senior year, all the bullshit malarkey that I had to put up for 5 or 6 years where i live with no computer or internet with my out of date consoles and having not gotten a new game in probably that same amount of years, I think I deserve this. I’m not discrediting her, because once I move back to Florida which should hopefully be in 1 or 2 months, I know my life is gonna begin. I know I’m gonna have to learn to drive, I know I’m gonna have to find a job. So yeah, maybe I won’t have full time frames to play it like I did with say… My Wii U. Or my 3DS. But I still think that I deserve this.
She also brought up the point that “is the Switch really going to be relevant in 2 to 3 years”, which, while it is a veried point, I don’t think I have to worry. The Switch has only been around for about 3 years and I think we got waaay more time than that. The Switch is gonna be around for a long ass time. Honestly, my prediction is that it won’t truly stop falling out until 2024 or 25, and even then we’ll probably only be getting like… XLs of it or something by then. I don’t think we’ll be getting another console from Nintendo maybe until as late as 2027 or 29 if I’m not sounding like I’m stretching things. So as much as I can see her point, I don’t think it’s going to be a “wasted purchase” or anything.
And… Yeah. Maybe I don’t need it, but I think I deserve it. She said she wouldn’t be disappointed in my decision because it’s mine. This is something I’m paying for with my own money in person. Not sending her with my money to purchase it herself. Because then she bought it. No. I’m an adult now, and I think that this is my first big adult step in life.
So yeah, I’m leaving the No Switch gang soon guys! For real. I don’t know when exactly because electronic retails might still be closed down but I’m getting a Switch soon when I get the chance. I’m hoping I’ll get some kinda bundle with it, if a 3H bundle exists I’ll get that. But yeah, this is what I’m doing. I hope you guys support me in this first adult decision I’m making :feh_legion:
