Confessions of a Renounced Gamer

Posted by Alei at 6/30/2008
It’s been roughly a month now since I started blogging. I was a gamer then. Yes, a gamer who’s been awfully addicted to online games. A gamer who aims to have the strongest character ever created. I rarely sleep early, barely eat my meals on time and in right amount and hardly had the time to spare on dynamic stuffs. Until, I woke up one day, realizing how much time and sweat I have invested and gained on nothing but aches on my head. For quite some time, I gained friends online, virtual friends as I may call them. They are nice and trustworthy. But their existence is limited only to the online world. Just like me, as time flew by, their characters died its natural death. Just like me, they have realized that the addiction we are facing may likely be a dilemma in the future. Playing for entertainment is reasonable. However, letting it control your time, life and money to the point that you lose yourself and your dreams is worst. There is more to life than gaming.
Upon my search for a wiser way of using my precious time, I have resulted to blogging. Here I am, blogging, enjoying and continuously learning. I am growing to love my blog though writing is not really my interest. I like to write but, at times writing does not seem to like me. (laughs) And yet, it is not too late to relinquish. I will do whatever it takes to keep this blog active. If I had been addicted to games, why not be addicted to blog? (I am pining for another titleBlinkie Text Generator at Yes it does require some effort but, the results will be a lot different and better.
I, like any of us, has only 24 hours a day to live, but, it is up to us on how to spend every second of it. Play, learn, travel, and sleep, it is all dependent on us on what to do. What we are trying to be today is also what we are going to be in the future. Let us use our time wisely and invest on things that we believe to yield the best possible results. Have a productive day ahead!

nice entry!!!!!!!!
I also love gaming but not addicted to it. It's bad to be overwhelmed with the game I tell you. I have known some of my classmates who became addict at online games and it wasn't a good impact on their social life.
