When “Having Fun” Doesn’t Seem So Fun Anymore

I’ve finally reached the point in my life where I can have fun when (and how) I want to.

To me, initially, fun was just video games and chilling at home. Sure, that STILL is fun to me, but I found it lacking in just a few months. No offense to those who do enjoy that lifestyle, though. It might not just be for me. (Yet, here I am editing this after watching a five-hour livestream hahahaha)

Adobo is the best. But after consuming adobo almost every day for a week, I quickly got sick of it, no matter how many variations I tried to make.

If you watch the same show every day, you’d eventually get tired of it (even if it’s One Piece.) But even if you WOULD watch the same show forever, I think that only applies to ongoing ones that release NEW episodes regularly. I’ve never met anyone re-watching something over and over non-stop.

For us here that like to dress up, wearing the same thing every time just doesn’t cut it. I love my neutral tones, but I like it when there’s a splash of color in my outfit from time to time.

Having fun the same way every time simply made it “normal”. Before, I used gaming as an escape from the stress that life and work bring. Now, the stress still exists, and I still work, but gaming’s now less of an escape and has become more of a way to pass the time.

If “fun” becomes the new “normal”, can it still be called fun?

Some of you here might have used to enjoy coming to work but now feel like quitting. I used to advocate quitting your job as a means to “find yourself,” but current me would argue that you are more than your job and there’s something else to your life beyond your job. In other words, you don’t have to quit your job to find whatever else you want to do. Those two (or more) things can exist together. If you’re one of those people that have meshed those things together, good for you, but most of us can’t do that.

For me, there’s something greater than just “enjoying life.” I still haven’t found it specifically just yet, but returning to this website feels like the right move.

There is stuff in the works, but I won’t be saying anything more. Saying too much gives me the false satisfaction of having already done it, just like how one might stop dieting or exercising regularly once they share with everyone what they’re doing.

A few more things before I go. Don’t get me wrong, I still am playing games, and I think, whatever happens, I’ll always be around the gaming community. Also, I’m really grateful to have received many sweet messages regarding my last post. For those people, I assure you that rather than feel despair, it made me happy to realize that there’s more to life than what I initially thought. 🙂 

Thanks again! If you know someone that would benefit from reading this, please share it with them. That would mean a lot to me.
