Do you have hobbies? How many hobbies do you have? Is there any kind of situation like that? Having more than one hobby? Well, as for me, yes. I'll share what are my hobbies during my teenage days.
I love reading books and drawing cartoons. I prefer to stay at home rather than going outside of our house. I still remember when I was an elementary pupil, I love reading poem and drawing animals or nature. I don't know but I felt proud everytime I see my outputs especially in drawing. I even wrote a short novel when I was a first year high school. I still remember the lead character's name, Jeric and Loraine. I even told myself that I will name my children with those names, lol. These hobbies turns to addiction when I already got a phone when I was a third year high school. Ahwts, it's not my phone pala, kay papa ko, and when we have already a Tv and a Dvd player. Hahaha. Why it turns to be an addiction?
The addiction started when I fell in loved with the one character in the anime. Like, I put myself to the lead female character. Lol, nabuang ng kunti. I don't know what happened but I fell in love with Inuyasha. Everytime I watch them, I am dreaming how it feels like to go back to the old era and found a half blood? Oh, di ba buang jud. And then, I started to dream him and I was with him fighting demons (sabi sa inyo eh, buang lage.) I told my father to buy me a drawing pad. I still remember it worth 22.00 pesos. And then I told him also to buy me a good pen. He did too. So, I started to draw inuyasha and kagume. My brother also knew how to draw anime so I felt like, why can't I right? I felt proud of myself for my first drawing that I did. Even my parents got amazed how I did it. Lol, love myself lang. But it's ture that I made it for the first time. I also draw the nature in the said anime. I put my drawing in an envelope. But sad to say, when I went to Pampanga, where my Lola is living, my drawings got wet during the typhoon because our house was open. It was the last time that I draw and until now, I haven't get back into drawings.
Same with other teenagers, I was also addicted to reading ebooks and wattpad stories. I still remember that I prefer to stay in my room reading wattpad while my phone was charging. I still remember that I bought biogesic because my head was aching due to lack of sleep and frequently using of cellphone. My sleep that time only took up to two hours. I will sleep at 3am and woke up at 5am to continue reading. I will read while eating. When my father noticed what I am doing, he got mad. One time, he looked in my room where my sisters were sleeping too, he found out that I am still reading even if it's already dawn. He grabbed my phone and reprimand me. Hahaha. But when he got to work, I got the phone from his bag and read again. Mama told me not to use phone always. But, I can't stop myself cause I felt soooooo bitin if I do so. I love reading fantacy stories. The lead characters have powers and all especially elementalist and vampire. I am not fond with dramas instead I am loving comedy genre. My days and night will not be complete if I can't read a story. It was the reason why my father's phone won't charge anymore and the battery got bloated. I still remember how mad he was. When he don't have phone already, I stopped reading ebooks and wattpad stories. I had wait two years to have my own phone hahaha. And when I already have my own phone, back to reading again. Even when I am in college, I still read wattpad stories, even during exam. It's my relaxation. Hihi
I am also an addict on watching kdramas. But not like reading wattpad. I am more fond in watching anime than kdrama, lol. Now that I have a child already, all of it was stopped. I don't read wattpad anymore for about two years. I already have headache if I read wattpad, maybe because of scrolling. But I have a new addiction now, lol. It is read.cash. My days won't be complete without opening my read.cash account. I love the interactions I have with other users. I can learn with them in terms in writing and about life. I also learn how to earn because lots of users here share their experiences in earning platforms.
What I learned in my new addiction is that I can gain knowledge and money at the same time. I can express my feelings and thoughts that helps me ease the pain and burden inside. I also love the comments of many users here which give me the strength to keep forward. I feel the belongingness and home in read.cash. I hope this addiction will long last. I know lots of users here also loves their stay here. And they're an addict too. And addict in read.cash.
