I need your help. Seriously.
Priorities are important in one’s life; everyone knows that. As for me, I know I’ve screwed them up, especially when I don’t give much of a damn to education anymore and spend more time playing DotA than reading textbooks. Or have I? You’ll be the judges of that.
Anyway, I realized that I still do have the drive to excel. I guess it has been inherent within me; perhaps it came from my parents’ expectations, or how I once viewed myself to be competitively and intellectually smart, but it’s still there. I want to stifle or rein in my addiction with DotA once and for all, and although I have had success in the past it was at best minimal. I know that change buds from one’s own heart and not from the words of other people, but I was hoping if you could give me tips on how to resolve this problem of mine. It’s pissing me off when I go play DotA immediately after class on a LAN cafe and then regret wasting my time afterwards only to return back to the same place the day after. It’s a vicious cycle I want to rid myself of; and as I know a lot more of my readers are more experienced as well as learned in the world I would like to enlist your help. What can I do?
Can you recommend any good literature? Can you post experiences of your own? If you can, please do. (Note, however, that no matter how hectic my schedule will be, anime will never disappear from my priorities as the top. It will never be overshadowed by DotA, and I’d prefer if I lost the habit of playing DotA than lose the habit of watching a medium that percolates and makes the mind think.)
I really need to set my life straight. Then maybe I can write better opinions and commentaries regarding the different anime I try to vivisect.
