Letter: Arcade aficionado sets goals for 2017
Editor’s Note: Lundgren, a 2001 Kamiak High School grad, was the subject of several stories in the Mukilteo Beacon in 2016 chronicling his beating the world’s high scores in several arcade games as part of his 2016 New Year’s resolution to become the King of the Arcades.
I have a feeling that this year will be the year I will truly break out of my shell, if 2016 was any indication. I have so many goals I would like to accomplish that are very vital to my work career and my personal goals for my hobbies and interests.
So here are my top five: Take cooking/baking classes to better my chances at a promotion in the bakery at Safeway; Keep myself healthy and active throughout the year; Break more and set more Arcade/console game scoring records; Go on a date and possibly dance with a beautiful woman. Meet more celebrities (both local and nationally) in comic-cons, social situations and, of course, in the vintage arcade world.
