How a Week Off Work Affected Me!

I recently got a week off work and this is what happened to me.

  • I became way more focused and consistent in my daily activities. And I didn’t multi-task as much and look at social media sites that often.
  • I became immersed in videogames again, studying, and doing whatever I wanted to do because I had a lot of energy, motivation, and time.
  • I felt way better, happier, and my quality of life rose.
  • The only bad thing that happened was that I started to feel lazy, but that was easily negotiated by running to the store. (Only good thing about minimum wage work is that exercise.)

Yeah I could use many more weeks off 🙂

Working 9-5 Job and Gaming

work

Before I had a 9 to 5 job working 8 hours a day I was able to game a lot. I actually had time to game all day and get immersed. Nowadays every time I try to get into a game that’s long to complete it’s very hard. Open world games and story driven games can take me months and months to complete. I don’t even play Minecraft that much anymore because there are too many things to do in that game. And I don’t want to use all my time on one game because I want to enjoy other games. I usually go through a pattern of playing a game for a day then the next day I go to work. Only 2 days out of 7 that I am free. When I come back from work I’m too tired to play and that immersion gets delayed for the next day until it eventually fades away entirely. I never thought a job would take so much energy and time but that’s the reality. I have way too many games now but the only thing I end up completing at the end of the day is the work at my job. This is what working a 9 to 5 is like.
