Remember the previous entry I blog about WoW? I reached level 60 and I proudly blog about it. And today, I am proud to be level 71 (only 71 jeh… nothing proud to be honest). This level 71 doesn’t come easy.
I reached level 70 within two weeks, that is considered VERY LONG given that I am a casual player. Easter break, I have all the time I want. My record is staying in front computer for 6 hours non stop. I definitely feel like shit when I stopped though.. the world is dizzy and I can’t stand straight properly when I am peeing. Hahaha. That is not a way to play game, I learnt my lesson. After two weeks of hard work, this is my result
Two weeks gone, and I am currently level 71.
“Ha? LEVEL 71 ? What are you doing these days? You are so lousy !!” Woooow…. slow down man. I’ll do some simple maths.
Theoretically, level 70 to level 71 only takes roughly 5 hours. And today, the date is 29th April. 16 days since I last levelled. Let’s make it easy, and make it 14 days.
That is to say, I do not have the time to play for more than 30 minutes per day. I felt ashamed calling myself a WoW player, although becoming a WoW player is nothing to boast about. But I am a proud WoW player. Why would I say that? Put yourself in another perspective. When you start a project, you subconsciously give yourself a goal to achieve. In this case, when I start WoW, my goal is to achieve balance in gaming, friends, study and sports (ha! that explains why no blog updates). There are times when one of these aspects get imbalance and things start falling apart., e.g. game too much until ignore study. So far, I reckon I am doing great since I started WoW. I have to admit, I thought I am falling into the “WoW addiction” category again, luckily I have past experience to remind how much I’ve lost over gaming addiction. I lost a girlfriend, and time. That is all because I have bad management of my priorities.
So many level 80 in my guild. I feel inferior.
With that mentality of mine. I thought of being able to keep up with every aspects of my life (fuhhh luckily I don’t have wife and kids yet hahaha). I had to admit. I failed miserably. Why? I underestimate the allocation of study time; I overestimate the efficiency of my studies. Lecturer told us “You will need to spend 12 hours on each subject, each week. You spend 3 hours with me, and you need to spend the rest of 9 hours to do your own study”. I have four subjects. I was only doing 2 hours on each subject, and 3 hours with lecturer. You do the maths.
“Yerr… I want to play WoW ohh…”
I say this sentences sooooooooooo many times past two weeks. I really wanted to play that game, unfortunately I have more important priorities to attend. Ah well, I would be glad if I have extra hour to spend on WoW everyday. Life would be wonderful, girls will be prettier. 20 minutes a day is not enough to cure my addiction.
And one habit that all of us posses.. PROCRASTINATE!
Oh shit I wasted 15 minutes drawing this comic strip -_-
Apart from underestimating my studies and overestimating my efficiency in completing tasks in given certain period. I spent more time on cooking. Nohhh!! ahbing can cook you know?! Don’t play play. I have been whipping up at least two meals a day, which is considered good I guess? Who cook more than 2 meals at home, please leave a comment below. I need to consult from you /pfft. Well, by cooking at home, I am in control of my own food choices. I have more variety of healthy foods to choose from. Occasionally still got take away la.. haha.
Oh no, I spent one hour writing until this point. This blog is taking away my time again. Fuck the proof read, I am going freestyle here. I am late for my revision again.
To wrap this up, I would like to take this opportunity to thank my guildies for being petient with my slow progression in WoW. I tried to keep up, seriously. But that would burn me out. Unfortunately, my Master Studies has taken alot of time away from me. We have different priorities I guess But I promise you guys. Let me deal with my matters first, I’ll be staying behind you. Chasing you bit by bit. One step at a time.
Thanks Impanda, Imladybird and Santriano for your private message. “Study comes first !!“ and “Remember, we are only casual players. Don’t stress out“
