All along, my hobbies include: anime, blogging, watching Youtube videos, and playing League of Legends. I used to read a lot of books, but sadly, that was in the past… Anyways, with so many pastimes, how do I even cope with life? Well, that’s the problem. Even though it is the school holidays for me now, I have work attachment and a part-time job. So, in order to handle these responsibilities, I tried reducing time spent on my hobbies. But unfortunately, this plan didn’t work out well. Thus, I have made a decision: I am going to stop blogging, because it is taking up way too much time. This will be my last and final post. Goodbye, Zyrogate Faine…
Or not? 😉 Haha was that too serious of a joke? I’m really sorry for that. Anyways, I’ll probably never quit blogging ((until 2 years later due to A levels and National Service afterwards…)) Indeed, each of my post require a heck lot of time, be it research or writing. But, I enjoy it very much and do not plan to stop any time soon. However, I have made up my mind to get rid of my hobby of playing LoL and watching LoL-related Youtube videos. LoL has been a really fun game, but it is one of the most useless things I have ever done in my life. It had allowed me to make friends through this common interest, but other than that, it has been an absolute waste of my time, and I have learnt almost nothing from it. In a game, I am unable to stop immediately because you are playing with other people and it is not ideal to be an irresponsible person. The LoL community is partially made up of very negative people, who carries machine guns around them, and shoots harsh criticism at people. This may cause people to feel emotionally sad. No offence, but this goes the same for several popular phone games and applications. My interest in LoL is not as extreme as an addiction, but similarly, I want to stop it once and for all 🙂
5 Tips To Stop Addiction
- List out the negative aspects of the particular activity
- Engage in other activities, less time to play.
- Identify and eradicate the triggers, for e.g. desktop shortcut.
- If that doesn’t work, uninstall/delete the game entirely.
- Set a goal to stop playing the game, like a 30-days abstinence.

To be honest, I believe that just watching anime alone is not a really meaningful hobby, because there’s no follow-up? There may be a lot of knowledge and values described in the anime, but you just pass it and move on to another anime… So, I think that that’s quite meaningless. Similar to life, if we just live a life that is full of joy and entertainment, at the end of the day, you would not leave any impact to the world. Instead, I think that we should strive to leave a positive effect on people at the same time, to fully experience the meaning of life.
Of course, having fun is important, but maybe we should not take up all the fun for ourselves, and give others some fun as well 🙂
