| WORD SPLURGE: Distractions & Hamsters|

I’m weak.

In the past 24 hours, I have spent majority of my pastime involving myself with an absolutely addicting app about ‘amsters (not sorry, I just had to overuse it with alliterations).

The thing is, the game came about from the original intention of downloading the WordPress app onto my phone. Unfortunately for me, my mind was instantly distracted by the brightly coloured icon of Hamster Life.

I was instantly sucked into the game for its cute graphics and adorable interpretation of hamsters in cartoon form… the worst thing is, I know I’m wasting my time, I know it’s not productive, but I just can’t bring myself to uninstall it!

Let me explain how unaware I am of time when I’m in the game:

I come home from work at 9PM.
It’s 11PM.

ELEVEN! 11PM! Where has the time gone?! What have I even been doing on the app to have invested two solid hours on one screen?! I mean, there really isn’t much to do on the game! It’s a tamagotchi-type game where you invest in food, bedding and accessories etc. for your hamster(s).

To sell the app to you slightly more, it has a Bejewelled/Candy Crush style puzzle element to it in order for you to earn stars and coins to buy more miscellaneous items for your pets.

All in all, it’s a stupid game with outrageously addicting elements to it. I’m honestly disappointed to see myself heavily invested in a childish and pointless game about hamsters.

On a lighter note, look at my growing collection of hamsters!:

I’ve learned absolutely nothing from word splurging on this post.
I honestly do need to sort out my impulsive addiction to Hamster Life.

braceletI promise, I’ll try harder!

Note: word splurge – jumbled posts of a tired blogger scrambling together incoherent words

My original intention with this blog has been to write a blog post at least once a week to keep the stats and (potential) readers hooked on here… I’m sorry to say that last week has been my first failure!

In all fairness, I have been abroad with no internet

That’s a lie. I’ve been back in the UK for a week now! A week! Oh how the time flies! This time last week… ah, this time last week, I was readying myself to leave Luxembourg airport and to return back to London.

I guess the reason for the lack of update for the past week of two has been due to the obligatory holiday blues that is also accompanied by jet lag and the reluctant adjustment back to every day life.

I mean, look at this:


THIS was my view last weekend!

I have holiday blues, and I’m reluctant to write my experience abroad as it’ll force me to look at the copious amounts of blurry photos and unstable videos of me having an amazing time.

But don’t you worry guys, the post will come.. in due time!

P.s. if you haven’t yet gathered, I’m pretty tired… but I felt the urge to give an explanation to my fellow readers.Β 

P.s.s. new post soon

P.s.s. goal: new post every week, new photo update on ‘Sketch Journal’Β every week
