Candid confessions of an Addict.

It’s quite some time I haven’t posted on the blog. I understand the anxiety of the readers. I received umpteen calls asking me to update it and here I am. Let me make a confession here, I am totally addicted to playing FIFA’09 (a computer game by EA Sports). Now, does that sound strange? I don’t know how but that’s a fact. Let me clarify. This all started almost 10-15 days before when I got FIFA’09. Since then I have been playing it for at least 4 hrs a day (or would that be an understatement?). I had lot many addictions with many games before – Age of Empires , Rise of Nations and Cricket 07. I still remember playing Rise of nations till 0400 AM in the morning in Mathura and still attending the office at 0800 AM with red eyes. Back then I didn’t have any other engagements. It used to be just office and home and no other responsibilities and more over my PC was the best of the machines one could have ever thought of then – Core 2 duo - processor , Intel DG965 - Motherboard, 250GB - HDD, 1GB – RAM, 19” wide TFT to boast of. Now who could have resisted the temptation to play on such a machine and that to games as exciting as Rise of Nations. But the two situations are very different. Now, I have an entrance exam every Sunday and remember I have taken a yearlong break for them. 4 hrs a day on a computer game is such a scenario is criminal waste of time. I understand but then you know – you have no control over it that’s why they are – Addictions. 

The heights which great men reached and kept, were not attained by sudden flight.They, whilst their companions slept, were toiling upwards in the night.

It's not denial. I'm just selective about the reality I accept.
