Long time no see? Anyway as some of you know, I did try Mabinogi, got to lvl 19. And now I’m slowly drifting away from it.
Going,Going,Going….Down the river of MapleStory. That’s right! I”m drifting back!
You see… I started playing Maplestory.Got to lvl 20 and noticed “Time consuming MY FOOT!.” By lvl 4x It was hard to
train by playing 1-2 hours a day. I bumped it up to 2-3 on a school night, 3-4 on a weekend. Harmless right?
By the high 40’s I bought my first 25$ NX card. I was so happy as soon as I got off the city bus, I ran like a humming bird back home to charge it. I began acting social too, not like I never talked before, but I just started… Talking… Example “Hi” turned into “Hai”, “Haha” turned into “LOL”, “…” turned into F6. 5x is when it all changed,
I started to play for 6-7 hours on a schoolnight, and Who-Knows how long on a weekend. I grew tired.
Short-tempered. And I developed light purple circles around my eyes. And by lvl 60, I preformed my first “Skip.” I didn’t get caught, but I thought ” No, I’m not THAT crazy.” I decided in order to make Dragon Kinght I’d have to increase my hours some more, But being 13 and all I couldn’t fit anymore time without my mom finding out.
I started to play at night. Waiting till everyone went to sleep. And then sneak back on the computer. I would start at 11pm and end at 5-6am. I was hella tired when I got to school. I usually slept at lunch/recess. I fell behind in school because of my excessive playing, not by much though, but enough to be called to the Guidance office. I couldn’t tell them what I had been doing imangine all those faces I’d have to tell my reasons too. My mom, My Dad, My Teachers. I just couldn’t.
When I got to 70, more hours were pushed into Maple, more school days were skipped. At 73 I “quit,” 1 month later I came back and got to 75. That’s when I pushed the uninstall button.
I still feel like I have enough strength to not get addicted again.
Who knows? I know there’s a 80% I will download Maple again.
I just don’t want history to repeat it self.
