I draw a line
I am someone who stands outside the “normal”. I wake up at 5 (or earlier) a.m., I walk first thing first, then train at the gym, then go back home and start working. After work to unwind I don’t watch TV, I don’t scroll the social media, I don’t go out and drink: I read, I write, I listen to audio books or podcasts. I don’t go to the cinema to watch movies, I don’t like to eat out, and I don’t like to travel that much. I don’t feel the need to go on holiday, to stop my routine and do something else, to stop working and relax for weeks every year. I enjoy my days, from Monday to Sunday, I do what I like the most and so I’m content and at peace. I don’t need anything else. I don’t have many friends, I’m not too social, I struggle to make new connection. I’m basically a weirdo.
From 5 to 7
I am an habitual person, I’ve always been, from when I have memory. I always loved doing the same things ove and over again: repeating tasks makes it easier to make them, they become automatic in the long run. The first thing I can think of which I enjoyed doing which was habitual and repeating was gaming, as a young adolescent I loved computer games - it was what made me take the career I took - and one of the games I enjoyed the most was an MMORPG where you had to farm experience and money in order to get better, and richer, once you reached the maximum level and obtained all the most powerful items you could obtain. It was a freemium game, everyone could play for free, but it was much easier to buy things with cash, making the climb to the top much faster. I never paid any cash: both because I didn’t have any and my parents wouldn’t give me any to spend on an online game, and because I simply didn’t want to. I was in the mindset of under evaluating my time: my time was “free”, so I could spend hours and hours playing without paying and I would obtain the same thing I could buy for, I don’t know, maybe £5.
Music, its importance and what not listening involves
In my teenage years, I was always listening to music, it was a fundamental part of my life: I used to listen to it while walking, while on the commute to school (just one earbud, while chatting with former friends on the bus) while studying, while eating, while at home alone, while talking with my parents, while doing sports, while sleeping - yes, I used to fall asleep listening to music, and the music kept playing until the next morning.
