Month of Less Day 9

For August 2017 I have dedicated myself to experiencing more through less. I have banned myself from doing any of the following:

  1. Needless snacking
  2. Playing video games
  3. Buying things on amazon

It won’t be easy, but I want to really boil down who I am and what I like to a simplicity. I believe when it comes to gaming, books and movies that “less is more”, so let’s see if that is true for people as well. (There were no blogs for the past four days)

Wednesday August 9th

Sadly I’ve been snacking a bit, a few healthy snacks were mixed in but overall my eating habits haven’t really improved yet. I had jury duty this past Monday and Tuesday and on Monday I completed a whole book! I’ve never read a whole book in one day but it was truly fantastic (After Dark by Haruki Murakami).

I also finished Spider-Man Blue in one sitting which was a great read.

My progress on Monster is getting better, the only thing holding me back is the price for the last five volumes which is almost eighty bucks. I need to finish it soon though to give me time to read the end of Goodnight Punpun this September (another fantastic manga).

Desire to play video games: 7/10

Yes, unfortunately my desire to play games has spiked significantly. I really want to play some more Danganronpa 2 after leaving it behind for a few months. I’m at a loss for what to do. On one hand: self-discipline. On the other hand: boredom.


How is everybody doing? If you haven’t seen it, check out my collaboration project with Athena from ambigamingcorner. This is Part 1 and Part 2. As always, thanks for reading!

Friday August 4th

Unfortunately For Whom the Bells Toll has become a total snooze fest. I can’t force myself to go any further at the moment. My progress will be on official hiatus until my brain is rested from the nonsense.

Monster is still amazing and today I should be receiving Spider-Man Blue in the mail (I ordered it before August hit. So my official “currently reading list” is this:

Spider-Man Blue

Monster

I picked up two new books so maybe I’ll jump into one of those. Hemingway just isn’t my cup of tea sadly. Oh yeah, video games.

Desire to play video games: 2/10

If you guys remember, day one was a 3/10! So things have gotten a lot easier. Honestly I just need a good form of entertainment and some friends. I HATE abandoning or putting my book progress on hiatus, but For Whom the Bells Toll really got bad.

I have a fun little question: What’s everybody’s favorite book!?


So things are getting smoother. I need to focus on exercise next. As always, thanks for reading!

Monday August 1st:

I left off in the middle of a save file of Dragon Quest VII on my 3DS. I’m only about twenty-one hours in, which is about of a third of the way through. Sometimes when I’m bored I think to myself “I want to play some Dragon Quest!” but I don’t. I wanted to play a game of Tetris before midnight struck, but my late night shower didn’t give me enough time.

Desire to play video games: 3/10

I am dedicating myself to reading and writing. I’m currently reading the manga series Monster by Naoki Urasawa and the book For Whom the Bells Toll by Ernest Hemingway. I’m happy to say that both the manga and book are stellar.

Monster progress: Volume 3/18

I’m also going to a local comic shop today with a friend. I’m getting into American comics more as is he. I may pick up the next volume of Monster if available and also a series called Postal which I hear is very good.


So guys that is day one, the easiest day! Tomorrow you will get part one of a very serious blog, so keep your eyes open for that! As always, thanks for reading.
