kingwell 1 Posted June 12, 2017 Share Posted June 12, 2017 Hi everyone in this forum. I'm a Chinese guy who is currently studying in the US for a master's degree. I'm 25.I began playing video games when I was very young, at primary school. At that time I had several friends who enjoyed playing video games and they often gathered together to play video games. I was not so interested in playing video games then. But I felt some kind of isolated if I didn't play with them, so I pretended that I was interested in games just to have them around. In fact, I now noticed they were not the good kind of friends and should have run away from that relationship already.However, it seems that the habit of playing games stayed inside me. I couldn't stop playing the first semester at middle school. One lucky thing for me is that I met a very nice girl when I reached puberty. We became good friends and she fulfilled all the 4 needs mentioned in the article "how to quit playing video games forever", which I noticed several days before when I read the article. Ever since the second semester of middle school, I quit playing video games for 5 and a half years. That was the best time of my life and I entered one of the best universities in China after high school.I didn't feel the need of playing video games for a long time. Things changed when I entered college. When I was in middle and high school, the teachers and my parents would force me to study every day, and I have a clear goal that I should enter college. After entering college, all of a sudden, nobody is in charge of me, in other words, I'm on my own for the first time in my life. I became confused and couldn't figure out what to do every day because I didn't have a goal since then. Now that I'm studying for master's degree after so many years. I find that I still didn't solve the problem: what I should do to make my life colorful. That's why I joined the Respawn and want to seize the chance of changing my life.I hope I can make progress with everyone here in the forum and see a new way of living my life.Best,Jingwei Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
