usernameforworldpeace! 245 Posted May 12, 2016 Share Posted May 12, 2016 Hey peeps. I am doing the gamequitters Challenge thing and the first challenge today was to make a journal and write a letter to me, and answer some questions.I would like to add that it's my intention not just to get rid of one smelly habit, games, because I know from past experience I just waste time on other things like internet --- I feel it's all part of one big life-procrastination-syndrome. I want to use free time on creative activities and learning activities and stuff!! Dear Me,I write to you today to inform you of my excellent & marvellous decision to move on from Game World. I've felt the pains of lag when gaming before, but right now I feel I've got some serious lag.... in life!!! All my friends from my school group are married, some with kids and all living independently. (Not that I want to get married any time soon but I would like to be independent!) Five years have passed since I graduated and I've barely anything to show for it. It's time to stop using games and other distractions like internet browsing to escape from making big decisions!! I really want to move out, get involved in creative communities and start sharing and participating with the world. You better watch out OLD me - NEW me's in town now bucko!!!!!!!!I'm coming for you!!!!mwahahahaaaaaaaYours Sincerely, faithfully and respectfully,NEW MeP.S. Have a great day------Right now, I think people could perceive me as being a combination of irresponsible, incapable, lazy, basically slightly useless.... BUT mostly harmless, maybe 'nice'.I'd like to be perceived as a warm, friendly, creative, uplifting person who isn't afraid to be different and slightly eccentric!!!!3 behaviours/characteristics to change- overly comfort-seeking- dull conversation manner- not acting on my ideasI have 18,207 days left to live!!!estimated date of death: Thursday, 18 March 2066I realized sometime halfway through your 27th year you pass the 10,000 days alive mark!!!!! Now THAT'S a landmark worth celebrating - why don't we celebrate landmarks like that, 5,000 days, 10,000 days, etc. they should be really special days as well as birthdays anything for more cake!!!The Simon Sinek video, "How Great Leaders Inspire Action" was really good. One of the best TED talks I've seen. It reminded me of a quote I can't remember, something like, if you have a purpose, beliefs, principles, 99% of all your decisions are already made. I feel right now I'm lacking the courage & conviction to follow my beliefs!DAY 1---------Deleted Steam, but that's the easy part for me. I've done that lots of times--- challenge is keeping it uninstalled! Also managed to keep internet surfing to a minimum, mostly spending time here and on Habitica. I filled most of my computer time making music in Cubase which is good, that's what I want to do most of. I'm using RescueTime to see what I spend most time on the computer. Good start, think I will go to bed early so I don't fall into the usual late night distract-a-thon!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
