As long as I maintained a healthy balance between exercise, homework and friends they did not mind if I was playing video games. I just remember once I played Skyrim for about 16 hours straight and we had to have a “talk” 

Most memorable gaming memory?

Winning $200 from a FIFA tournament that I just walked in on (at the time I hadn’t played FIFA since FIFA98 so it felt extra rewarding, considering everyone was taking it so seriously—apparently I just got lucky) 

Advice to your 15-year-old self?

Don’t travel 4 hours to the Kanye West concert the night before your High school Track and Field Championships—it turns out that he is sort of a jerk
