Halo: My Anti-drug

So I was hanging out with a friend of mine who I hadn't seen in a while because he was a really heavy pot head. I mean of all the drugs he could be doing pot isn't that bad, but he was getting arrested and so my parents were like he's a bad influence and told me to stay away from him. They don't realize that I have an incredible immunity to peer pressure, and that I can legally make my own decisions about who I want to associate with. Anyways he's been sober for about a week now, not very impressive, but I think the reason is the best part of this story. He literally gave up drugs to play Halo: Reach. He gave up pot at least, I think he still smokes the occasional cigarette but I can only speculate. Back as far as Halo 2 I think he was always the best player. When Halo 3 came around he became like a semi-professional player, so he would compete in tournaments and win most of them but they were local and he won like $50 or like some Monster energy drinks. Now he's been playing the new Halo instead of smoking pot. Which is better in my opinion because Halo is much cheaper and he has the opportunity to make money if he's REALLY good. though making back the money he spent on weed is going to be difficult considering he spent almost $17K on weed.

So this same night me and my ex-stonner friend, along with another friend, are at guitar center. Two of us play guitar and Mr. Halo pro was interested in learning drums. The thing is he's broke. The cheapest drum set there was around $400. I told him to Craig list it. I was also looking at a nice Ibanez with silver-burst. But the whole time I was trying it out there was some kid right next to me who just had to keep upstaging me. And then when I though he was done, nope, he's just playing bass now. Speaking of bass, my friend bought the sound track to Scott Pilgrim and we were blasting it in the car
