Look What I’ve Been Doing Lately

Posted by

My conscience is eating me up badly, of guilt most especially. What have I been doing lately?. Yes this post might sound so serious but trust me it isn’t, but you might learn a little something from it like I did while thinking it through. It’s also gonna be a short one. Just a thought that ran through my mind in review of this month about to end April”. Here’s a look at what I have been doing lately. . .
Yes, so what have I been doing lately?… What has been taking my time? What has been taking much of my attention? Well, the answer ain’t far fetched. 8 ball pool and movies!

Sounds like fun right? But life needs balance. I basically did nothing but steadily developed the habit of picking up my phone, then double tap to wake, unlock and the swipe through my apps or better still, use the search button to find the gaming app. 8 ball pool 🎱 and the circle continued.  Gradually I became…  I dunno if to use the line “addicted to the game” because from gradually playing it when less busy, I graduated to playing online. Meaning I burned data that was never enough for me to surf the net 15/7 (except when I’m asleep) on playing 8 ball pool 🎱 …

How did I even get to know about the game though? :?. OK here’s how…

I was at my friend’s place (my best friend actually) as he just got back from school for holiday. And we immediately engaged in our usual act of raping our phones by using it without consent, talk less of restrictions. There I was, ransacking his menu looking for something new amongst his apps. Unfortunately I’m not really a game freak (although I am, but in some way tho)… No new apps, so I engaged in trying the games out one after the other and unfortunately. Unfortunately.. UNFORTUNATELY… I loved the game the first game I tried out. I didn’t bother quitting afterwards.

Look what I've been doing lately
The addictive game 

With the speed of Barry Allen in the The Flash, I found myself transferring it on to my phone…  Even when my phone started talking gibberish about storage, I wasted no time in deleting one unnecessary app like that. Since it was just gathering cobwebs on my phone.

Since I got the game on my phone, I’ve been addicted to it. In fact I couldn’t sleep that night. I even bounced 3 calls from two people so as not to quit… Please don’t judge me 🙏… I found myself playing more often than engaging in other things.

The online peering 
Furthermore you can play with people around the world 

To worsen it all, I downloaded some old movies to re-watch again. Some were Hitch starring Will Smith, and 35 and ticking by I don’t know who and lastly The Boondocks season 4. Mehn! I’ve been wanting to see boondocks. Always interesting. I’ve always loved Huey since time immemorial.

All this went through the month of April and now it’s the 29th and bam! May is knocking. How come? Why so fast? How did it happen? Are you sure we didn’t skip 10th-20th?… Mehn…

I remembered my to-do list I had for last month (March). You can check it out here.  And I followed it judiciously and with all righteousness, but here’s April,  about to be ended and I didn’t really make a to-do list. I didn’t write any down. So I wasn’t reminded of things I wanted to do and achieve for this month. I got myself pre-occupied with unnecessary things that could have been balanced. Unlike March, I had nothing done specifically…

So, I’m making amends and trying do better for this coming month, MAY. I’m gonna be penning down my to-do list soon and publishing it as well as working by it and beyond. I expect to do more in the on coming month of MAY. Its about time I get my sh** together and reduce 8 ball pool🎱.

There, you now you’ve had a look at what I have been doing lately… 

P.S: May is my birth month! Can I hear a YAAAAAYYYYY! lol… That’s for another day 😁.
