I know I’ve said to this affect before, yet I don’t think I know any other style of living. Obsessive behavior.
Obsession brings me manic times where I binge on activities until I need a break. I don’t mean “want a break”. Need is definitely appropriate, because typically I didn’t really choose my obsession. I become obsessed by any old problem that needs a solution.
As in with welding. The idea was introduced for pure financial gains. A cousin touted the likely wages to my dad and then I was introduced by him. I was in need of a new obsession as my obsession with World of Warcraft had been nearing its end. Quickly, I became engrossed within that environment. Spending six to twelve hours of (Monday through Thursday) every day I was allowed to attend.
I learned a lot, had fun, became somewhat social, and brought me near drafting. Then Drafting took over… out of need that, I believed the classes would help with a management position. Because I would know better of reading schematics or blueprints.
But then I became very obsessive — spending the same time as welding, except at the twelve hour range every day. Also, I became an avid sketcher of ideas at home. Reading about it, dreaming, and researching. I taught everyone in the class and found a great niche.
Definitely more between these examples, yet not at the …. oh jeez I’m bout to pass out on my phone’s keyboard. I’m off to sleep!!!
