Yet, if you continue to play every day like you used to, you could gradually get back into binge gaming

Yeah, I think you're right, but I feel like something has permanently changed in me. I don't feel good after gaming anymore, nor do I enjoy it even slightly as before.

we shall see! Who knows what will be happening in a whole year...

I've just got my math results, I have 62 points out of 100. It's a very shitty result, l completely fucked up with this one. It's so bad that I can't enter any good universities with this shit. So 99% I'm going to the army for a year.

Gaming, essentially, is a way for some people (like me) to numb my stress

Since I finished my exams, every time I play I actually feel bad, because instead of doing something productive I'm wasting my time on gaming and understanding it vanishes all enjoyment from it. I'll try to update my journal sometimes to systemize my thoughts and goals.

 And when I'm free of any responsibilities, it makes me much more motivated to do productive stuff. 

When a task is perceived as an obligation, you may not be as enthusiastic about doing it.

Look at the difference 1) i have to call 3 clients with a prospective offer.

2) i have an option to call 3 clients with a prospective offer.

Approach number one means you are proceeding in autopilot mode. 

Approach number two engages you. You become aware of your priorities, and vision of where you want to go with this action. You even start seeing what is wrong with how you execute it on a habitual basis. 

It is a much more wholistic approach. Even your sales pitch is going to be different.

Hmmm, have you thought of retaking it? A friend of mine has done that!

Sure, but I can do this only next year. And since I’m not in uni, I have to go to the army. I’ll come back and redo all exams.

I've just sold my GPU. I was using my GTX 1060 for 4 years and sold it for the same price for which I bought it. Thanks for microelectronics shortage and miners. There's no reason to buy GPU now for such a high price, so I decided to buy a GPU only when I come back form army. So I'm left with just my ThinkPad T440P for the next 3 months. It means that I won't be able to game. Alright, I'll focus on learning programming then.
