The Happiness of Playing Candy Crush
100 Days of Happiness – Day 19
I suppose that once addicted, you can never let go that easily. But there are some good addictions and some bad ones. So far, I’ve been fortunate to get addicted to only the good ones.
I’m addicted to reading. I can spend a whole day with my nose in a book and my imagination in those worlds. Like Tyrion Lannister said, “A mind needs books like a sword needs a whetstone.” I’m addicted to writing. When in flow, the words just seem to find their way onto paper so easily. I’ve written 3000 words in 4 hours one time, and the feeling of satisfaction afterward is incomparable. I’m addicted to chocolates. Even when I’m supposed to be on a diet, I am so easily tempted to get a Dairy Milk and eat it slowly. I used to be addicted to this game. I hadn’t played it since April, and I thought I’d let go, but apparently, my will power when it comes to this is weaker than I expected.
Happiness is is playing Candy Crush Saga once again. And no, I do not intend to sync with Facebook at all. It’s fun. I play it infrequently. And I hope it never takes priority over good addictions.
