Mundane Life

Lately, my life has been a little mundane. Just a series of routines repeating themselves over and over. After work on weekdays, I would take a nap before going to the gym, come back, have my dinner and immerse myself in the awesomest game that is World of Warcraft (WOW), or I would just have my dinner early and WOW my brains out until it was time to sleep on non-workout days.

On weekends, I would eat and WOW as soon as I woke up, before I went for my workout, come back, eat and the WOW somemore. It seems like every free minute is dedicated to WOW. Sometimes, I'd have to literally PRY myself off the computer. I sleep MUCH LATER than I should on weekdays AND weekends, which is not healthy and NOT helping my curb my irregular sleeping hours neither. Plus, I'm training a lot so I need sufficient hours in slumberland. To add to that, it ain't good for my complexion neither.

WOW is taking up more than 50% of my life, and I need to get back out there. Sometimes I'd skip chores and going out, just to numb my eyes and ass and risk cramping my fingers in front of the PC for hours. I knew this would happen if the game was addictive, but I don't even feel guilty about it. WOW does help keep me occupied. Well, maybe a little TOO occupied and the time isn't exactly spent productively. Having said that, it does make me happy and excited playing it, so I'm not gonna complain. Just need to regulate the addicted gamer side in me.

To break out of this vicious cycle of endless gaming and blocking out real life, I'll be going clubbing this weekend at Momo. Then, I'll be going clubbing in KL next weekend (hopefully, my schedule is free enough). Also, I really miss all my gal pals (girls and PLUs) in KL

Isn't everyone's life is set to a routine where you do similar task everyday? I wonder if there is anyone's life with difference activities every single day?

Mark, WOW is addictive. There are many hot and popular guys here in NZ who can be going out and getting laid, but they choose to play WOW. After all, isn't clubbing also repetitive? Any gay club in the world, its always mostly the same faces with a few new ones each time. And when two guys hook up, many times, one is not so interested anymore after having a good look at the other guy sober and in the bright fluorescent white light away from the dark club. Malaysians love bright fluorescent white tube lights for repetitive situations like these.

Calvin: Although life is mostly a routine, it wouldn't hurt to vary your routines to avoid boredom =P

David: Yes, I already knew this would happen before I went with it, but no regrets here. Having a GREAT time with WOW. As for the clubbing thing, it's not meant to be a routine, but is more enjoyable when done occasionally.

Kevin: Yepz, but it's up to us to change and evolve in it ^^
