An update at last?

Those who read my blog more or less regularly may have noticed a lack of updates in the previous week. With my previous posts, however, one can infer that I have not done so (posting) because I wasted my time playing DotA. That inference is, indeed, entirely correct. I have got so gut-busting lazy that I sometimes came home at about 12 midnight, left my studies in the lurch, and was tired all-week long. I’m going to try, however, to stop my addiction of this game cold turkey. I have already failed an important exam (although DotA wasn’t the reason, but a bad case of LBM); I often feel sapped and enervated because of this; and worst of all, I don’t have time for anime anymore.

The good thing is, my parents called me and I have been able to talk over with them the problems plaguing me (my loneliness and desolation, not to mention my disillusionment with bastard teachers). They have just given me a newfound hope to persevere once more in my ever-climbing ascent to knowledge and enlightenment (that I don’t like much for now). I think I’m going to study after I watch some NHK ni Youkoso!, but more importantly, I think I’m going to stop DotA for a while and study more on Comparative Anatomy, despite the fact that I don’t like Biology at all.

On less tangential and more relevant stuff, I just finished reading the Silky Whip manga done by Oh! Great (Ogure Ito). I can say that although it had stories that were just plain sex, there were also stories that were simply amazing in their ability to intercalate within the plot itself the existence of well-placed sex.

Next, I really need to read the NHK manga, simply because the anime has enamored me to do so. The anime is quite the pertinent study to the more depraved aspects and the more depraved people of what makes up humanity, and although sometimes a vain effort to make others laugh (ep4), is also quite incisive and perceptive, not to mention esemplastic in presenting the entire spectrum of human emotions.

(I felt that I’d fare better writing about my priorities because it reminds me what I need to do and what I have to do, as well as what I should not do – play DotA. Of course I may fail, but the fact I’ve written it down makes me feel more confident that I won’t lose myself to DotA addiction [besides, anime addiction is so much cheaper and more heartwarming 🙂 ].)

cebukitty, I wrote this to simply thank you for those inspiring and kind words you wrote at the post before this. That really made my day, honestly. Onward to being a doctor, then! XD

    Whoa. That’s harsh, hommes. O_O

    Me thinks I may noticed you before. Maybe it’s just me. XD

    Your message is quite cryptic. Care to elaborate? 🙂

    What I was implying at is that we might have seen each other. You’re a Filipino, who’s taking up Biology, and is in a Comparative Anatomy class So that was what made me think that way. :s

    I was also thinking that you might be at a different school from me. If we might be former classmates, we could have been friends easily. We both have an eye for anime, for one thing. *shrugs*

    Then again, I might be having a lack of sleep, lol. I may be hallucinating when I said that. XP

    Michael,

    Just persevere my friend and everything will turn out great eventually. I don’t recommend going cold turkey with DotA though. The thought of giving up on video games entirely is a depressing thought and I’d be the last person on earth to recommend that option :p The only way to fight vid game addictions is to form good habits. Time management is key. Hehehe, I used to sneak in an hour of video playing before I started studying med stuff. Games refreshes the mind and jumpstarts the synapses. When I took up pre-med and med eons ago, I used anatomy programs like A.D.A.M. to help me with my studies. I’m sure there are similar and more sophisticated programs in the market to help you with comparative anatomy. And to help you plough through stratas of medicalese, watch one anime ep every 1 1/2 to 2 hours of studying, or a short DoTA game. I suggest keeping an alarm clock handy to make sure you won’t be tempted to play overtime 🙂

    Keep on truckin’

    Hah, trying putting in an hour’s worth of DoTA without ruining the game for your teammates! Whenever we play DoTA, the game goes into around 2-3 hours.

    NEVER mix play time and study time. When I was in school, I’d either play or study not manage both cause instead of relaxing off, you will be stressed out. Trust me.

    I’m sure memorization will not become a serious problem to you. If you can put the same amount of effort playing DoTA to your anatomy memorization, then the memorization will be done effortless.

  7. cebukitty Says:

    Tritoch’s advice has obvious merit. Not having played DotA before, I didn’t take into account the fact that a.)its a multiplayer on line game b.) you have to go to a cybercafe to play it. Gomen!

  8. tritoch Says:

    hmm… Honey and Clover is on Animax right now in the Philippines right? Anybody following it? It premiered August 7th so it’ll be halfway through by now considering their usual airing is one episode per day instead of per week.

    Hopefully it catches fire in the Philippines and be popular.

  9. tritoch Says:

    AW crap I can’t edit my comment. Heh.

    I play dota at home. Even when I’m playing at home, it kills so much of my time that sometimes I don’t even realize the sun has risen in the morning.

    Hello. Prompt how to get acquainted with the girl it to me to like. But does not know about it
    I have read through one history
    Each of you has your personal story; it is your history. Keeping a diary or writing your feelings in a special notebook is a wonderful way to learn how to think and write about who you are — to develop your own identity and voice.

    People of all ages are able to do this. Your own history is special because of your circumstances: your cultural, racial, religious or ethnic background. Your story is also part of human history, a part of the story of the dignity and worth of all human beings. By putting opinions and thoughts into words, you, too, can give voice to your inner self and strivings.

    A long entry by Anne Frank on April 5, 1944, written after more than a year and a half of hiding from the Nazis, describes the range of emotions 14-year-old Anne is experiencing:

    “. . . but the moment I was alone I knew I was going to cry my eyes out. I slid to the floor in my nightgown and began by saying my prayers, very fervently. Then I drew my knees to my chest, lay my head on my arms and cried, all huddled up on the bare floor. A loud sob brought me back down to earth, and I choked back my tears, since I didn’t want anyone next door to hear me . . .

    “And now it’s really over. I finally realized that I must do my school work to keep from being ignorant, to get on in life, to become a journalist, because that’s what I want! I know I can write. A few of my stories are good, my descriptions of the Secret Annex are humorous, much of my diary is vivid and alive, but . . . it remains to be seen whether I really have talent . . .

    “When I write I can shake off all my cares. My sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived! But, and that’s a big question, will I ever be able to write something great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer? I hope so, oh, I hope so very much, because writing allows me to record everything, all my thoughts, ideals and fantasies.

    “I haven’t worked on Cady’s Life for ages. In my mind I’ve worked out exactly what happens next, but the story doesn’t seem to be coming along very well. I might never finish it, and it’ll wind up in the wastepaper basket or the stove. That’s a horrible thought, but then I say to myself, “At the age of 14 and with so little experience, you can’t write about philosophy.’ So onward and upward, with renewed spirits. It’ll all work out, because I’m determined to write! Yours, Anne M. Frank
