Jay's Journey of a Journal in Daily Journals Posted December 19, 2016 · Edited December 19, 2016 by Jaydarian @dandielionous thanks for sharing. I recall playing Flappy Bird - I don't recall me or my friends being particularly addicted Anyhow, after reading the article I see how nearly every "hit" game is filled with aggressive tactics for the user to form habits (especially phone games)@Cam Adair Thank you and hello!Today I went to sleep at 9AM and woke up at 3pm.I talked to two friends on the phone for 30 minutes each. I am living by my value of connection by reaching out to people often and talking about anything. I've noticed that I have had a difficult time keeping friendships.I never thought about playing games until now, 2:16AM. I took a nap around 11pm - and now I'm unsure what to do.I fulfilled a few desires today: to read a book, to watch a lecture, to play guitar.I now feel at an impasse - do I deserve to play a game? Have I earned it because I completed my good habits? I'm going to put it off for now - I will watch some more youtube lectures. Actually, I will look into male psychology about being open (something like this forum). It seems to be a sign of weakness to be emotionally vulnerable - my experience.
