School- Excuse, Addiction- Reality

When my school started, I had shortly posted on my blog about me being busy throughout so I could give concentration to my studies. It was true.. temporarily. After the first weeks of school, I was finally back in sync with my previous year’s lessons. Since the job was done, I couldn’t wait to use the computer and come back to blogging, I had all the time in the world to do so until I stumbled upon ‘SIMS 3’. Okay, I didn’t stumble on it, just that I had laid my hands on the CD. I did not expect this though, but I found myself allured to the game that I started spending every second on it, blaming the school for being busy with work.

I must say, the game really IS awesome addictive!

Addiction is bad. Bad bad. Especially for someone like me who looks forward to chatting with everyone and getting along with his friends, games are miserable hindrances that waste the precious time. Trust me, if you find yourself addicted to an offline game, get away. Treat it like the Boogeyman you used to listen about as a kid. During the month of Ramadan, I could conjure myself four hours of free time on which I could freely use the computer, and from those four, half an hour went to facebook and the latter, SIMS3. This addiction took away the time I had to socialize with my old pals (as I’d call them), who, after a week I finally remembered about. I tried catching up to them and was given a cold shoulder.

It hurt, for real.

Once again today I was playing the game and I got a text from a friend of mine, asking if I were free, I replied back with a simple ‘nah, doing Mathematics’. It was only after the next minute I realised there was a revolt inside me for lying to him. It was right then that I made up my mind to actually  go out and feel the fresh air (of the internet and chat-o-sphere) rather than being locked up like a geek focusing on the computer about how would his barbie doll would fare this week.

Moral of the article: Never ever get addicted to games. It affects your life.

  1. damn u are an addict XD:P

  2. OhMyGod. For the most part of my life, I have dreamed about playing SIMS. Any part! but sadly my dreams were crushed brutally by pirated copies and computers that were too ancient to download anything.
    but I do know…*lowers her voice to a whisper* it’s very addictive.

    • Any part? I have played all three :D pirated copies are how the country works btw, and yes, HIGHLY addictive!
      Oh well, I removed it finally =p

    I completely disagree… I play games during my examinations and they’ve never been addicting enough for me (though I don’t play sissy games like SIMS). I have managed to give time to my friends, play excessive video games and study efficiently at the same time.

    • Actually, no, you yourself consider yourself an introvert, since I’m one too, I know what’s it like. You do give time to your friends, but not the OLD friends, I lost many friends because I simply didn’t talk to them.
      Secondly, there’s nothing sissy at all with SIMS.
      Thirdly, that’s how you might manage your time, I couldn’t and I find addiction bad now.
