My name is Hristos Wrenkurske. My endgame is to become the greatest I possibly can become.
I've been playing Halo since April 2009, with my purchase of an original Xbox, along with Halo: Combat Evolved, and Halo 2 shortly thereafter. I started my online journey through Halo ain2009 with my purchase of Halo 3, after having waited months, if not years for it to happen. I was 12 then, so perhaps my looking-forward and patient waiting seem petty, but Halo had always been a big deal for me, ever since I first heard about it years earlier. My parents would never let me play or purchase it, due to their strong suburban middle-class views on violence in vidya, but that soon changed as I became a teenager, albeit a squeaker at that. I spent my first year or so of Halo learning the ropes; The lore, the gameplay, the community. I was attached to Forge, and creation of anything Halo-related, honestly. I would scheme up new weapons, strategies, stories, anything, all the time.
My endgame for Halo was to *be the best*. I never put enough time into competitive matchmaking I guess, because for years I was plagued by doubt and misfortune within the ranked scene, limiting me to low issues of self-esteem while playing Halo (which was also negatively affected by my home life, and dwindling social life, at the time). For years, I've battled depression, anxiety, self-harm, and thoughts of suicide... but Halo has always been my escape. Everything about it has always lit my day up to heights of illumination I could have never imagined. I've since garnered a new-found spirit for Halo, and I am again trying to become the best I can be. I'm not a pro, or MLG, but I'm something. I want to get better, and the only way of doing that is through playing one of mankind's greatest sources of entertainment, inspiration, and blam.
My *realistic* goal, especially for my life, is to continue studying design and Graphic Arts, as well as branch off and study level design, character and story concept, sound design, and competitive gameplay theory. Working at a place like 343i would be the best opportunity to ever befall me, and I cannot wait to begin studying what they require of my skillset so hopefully one day this can become a reality. If I could post here on Waypoint, I would be posting my ideas, strategies, and opinions with you all daily, so PM me if need be (I will most certainly be PMing you if I feel as though my response to your topic is meaningful enough!). Thanks for reading, have a splenderific morrowafterevening, and cheers!
