I've been in the area for about 5 years now, and still keep finding new places to go (it helps that I just moved to a new apartment, and thus another part of the DFW area)
I'm definitely a gamer, and my focus in school just feeds that, if nothing else. However, I'm not a hermit sitting on my computer 24/7. Having an actual social life is one thing that keeps me going.
Above all, I think that life is worth living (pardon the cliche). if you never try anything, you'll miss out on all the amazing things in this world. Not to say that I'm reckless, but I enjoy having fun, whether with friends, family, or even just a relaxing night in.
