Away from the usual world

I’m used to being online a lot, and on my laptop a lot. I’m also used to getting tired by midnight but today I don’t feel that way.

Odd.

I said I was going to start sleeping earlier, and I used to blame my American friends for my horrible sleeping patterns… but not anymore. Now there’s someone else to blame, and that’s my brother. ๐Ÿ˜ง Usually I sleep at around midnight, which is all good. I slept at 2:00am this morning and woke up near noon.

That wasn’t cool.

My brother has been sleeping at the ungodly time of 5:00am (or later) and waking up in the afternoon. I just can’t do that. I’m trying to revert myself into sleeping the other way around; sleeping very early at night, and waking up in the wee hours of the morning, maybe even before sunrise.

Years ago when I went to Indonesia, we visited a volcano/mountain called Bromo. It was a really rocky place and the mountains were obviously really steep. It is said that you can see the sun rise if you walk towards the top of the mountains. Unfortunately, and unusually, it was cold, rainy and wet on the day we chose to walk up. We couldn’t see the sun rise. It was disappointing but we still went there, so we had taken a photo just to prove that we’d made the effort. Making the effort is what really counts. ๐Ÿ˜„

However, regulating my sleeping patterns is extremely difficult since I’ve already made a habit out of sleeping very late. ๐Ÿ˜ž I’m hoping that by the time university goes back, I’ll be sleeping a lot earlier. I know it’s just a habit for any regular student to stay up past their normal sleeping time when it’s a holiday.

I mean, when will I get a holiday like this again? Hmm. ๐Ÿ˜”

I’m alright with blaming my brother. Today he got me addicted to Minecraft. It’s this ridiculous game. I’m telling you, it’s ridiculous. More ridiculous than Supaplex, which I talked about in a previous post. Like holy shit, it’s terrible.

I’m only exaggerating; it’s just the graphics and the concept. The graphics are horrible. They’re pixelated and by no means anything fancy like the first-person-shooter games you might play today. The concept is simple. You are on a piece of land and you have to build a home before it gets dark so that the monsters don’t get you. Apparently, one of the monsters looks like a part of the male reproductive system.

Strange.

It’s like I’m finding new things to do. I mean, don’t get me wrong, the internet is great… but sometimes it’s good to get offline.

(Yeah, and play more computer games instead of going out for fresh air.)

(No, really.)

I used to get so easily bored during high school. I used the internet and I played some games, but I think I ventured into web design and sort of lost interest in gaming. I also used to read. I read several books a day and sometimes I would just read books non-stop until it hurt my eyes after reading for a long time.

I was never one to watch television when bored, but now, suddenly, I have a bunch of DVDs to watch.

I used to hate adventure. I used to just want to read. I used to just want to doodle and draw and write poems. But now I love adventure. I love going outdoors, and hanging out with James. I enjoy our trips to unknown places and forests and exploring and going into the beauties of nature. I was scared of cooking but now I love it. I look forward to days when we cook something.

And now, I’m poking my nose back into gaming. I’m poking my nose back into writing. I’m working on a novel again.

Sometimes, it’s like a different world.

And it’s totally amazing.

I’m never bored anymore. โ™ฅ๏ธ
