The Future of Past Me


Here I am, playing PS1 RPGs on my PSP that I downloaded from the PSN, and it hit me. I"m in the future, I achieved my vision. Years ago I distinctly remember going through Final Fantasy 7 and thinking how marvelous it would be to have console games on a handheld. It took a few years, but I finally realized it.

In a way the feeling closely resembles fulfilling a prophecy. The hero, me, valiantly went forth buying all the video games; my journey, the video games. Knowing I currently live in a time my younger self envisioned is very remarkable and strange. A nice moment to take out of the day.
