Day 6: Learning curve and reading fast (2 things I would never ever do at once…until now)

Morning everyone and Merry Christmas Eve to all those Christmas people.

Well I didn’t get much sleep the last couple days. Not sure if the addiction is raging back or I’m just experience some hormonal change, though I do hope it’s the latter. To sum up my activities for the last 12 hours was reading 4 chapters of my Player’s Handbook for Dungeons and Dragons. I might have to resort playing by myself until I can find people who would be interested. By the looks of this game, it could be pretty hard considering my generation’s lacking attention span.

As you can tell, it’s day 6 of my cold turkey campaign on computer games. Good thing D&D is a board game or else I would be so screwed. All I’ve done is unpack and read D&D like mad, I haven’t even gone into drink a bag of expiring milk my sister gave me as well as mushrooms for my pasta sauce. The closest I’ve gotten to computer games is when I was installing the drivers for the game controller and I was just fiddling with the commands and such. Though I am really back up to a 11 of 10 to jump into the games on my computer and play for hours on end and talk about it. I’m so tempted that I wish someone could handcuff me to my bed (maybe on more than just restricting me from video games). Anyways, I used my ADHD for something good for once. I cleaned most of my desk from receipts dating back to 2007 and not I have some space for a few other things. I have a long ways to go to have a nice agronomical desk with a burn mark (another blog, another time). I still have to fix or find a use for my printer or just toss it and use that space.

Alongside with my problems and due to my sister being away, I have to water her plants which involves a nice 1.6 km walk through snow and slush  there and back. Probably I should do it today so I can go downtown and get some tacos from Taco Time. I’m sop tired that everything sounds good to eat; which reminds me, I have to get cereal.

Man, it’s going to get so busy today; but I have to suck it up and get through it. The next 3 days are going to be a test to my willpower since everything is going to be closed for Christmas and Boxing Day is going to be swamped with people chasing for deals.

Man, writing this; I can really see my tics. All the hand rubbing and squeezing and the fidgeting. Has anyone had that experience when they start noticing that stuff and even though it’s you, you just go, “that’s weird”? Share in the comments below while I try and stop myself. Though I might be tired, so I might have to get some rest.

Along with some computer news, I got NHL 2009 so once I’m done with the next 15 days; I might try and find some people to play a season or something. Though I think my mind would be more into playing Grand Theft Auto IV. I think it’s one accomplishment I ever wanted, it was to collect all DLC’s for a game as long as the original and the DLC’s are not pirated. Pirating games isn’t cool. Pirating anything isn’t cool. Maybe you want to just sample real quick then buy, but my view on that is if you like it, buy it.

So plans for the next 24 hours; water plants, sleep, eat, no staying in the house, maybe write and learn some more and find something long term until the 3rd (or was it the 5th of January?). Anyways, I’m wanting my game fix,; I think I should take a nap and see where I’m at.

I’ll regroup with you guys either today or tomorrow morning. For now, I leave you this. Post comments or suggestions on how I should really go with this.

Thanks for reading!

  1. Hmmm, I never knew people can be addicted to video games but I certainly know the feeling. During my unemployment times, I played FrontierVille on Facebook. When I stopped playing, I thought about my crops that are now withering. I had to kept on telling myself, those are NOT real crops! 😀
    Luckily, I got bored easily with mainstream video games. I prefer to play those independent things. They don’t take much time and some actually makes you think. Recent favorite is Spectre, ( It’s more of an interactive story though.
    Merry Christmas, hope you can play video games without addicted soon.
