The Problem of ‘So Many Things’

Hi guys,

So recently I’ve been thinking (A dangerous past time, I know), but I’ve come to a conclusion that I lack a vital skill for education and work. That is, the skill of self-discipline. I am privileged to own many things, have access to internet (even if it is Australia’s ADSL2…), but it is possible that having access to these things is one of the problems causing me to lack the ability to control myself to an extent.

That is, due to having so many things to do, I don’t need to do a certain thing to entertain my brain. I can simply go, ‘huh, I’m no longer interested in this. Why don’t I do that instead. And therein lies the problem. With the ability to avoid something, without the skill of self-discipline, you will avoid it. There’s a mechanism working in the brain that does this, I am fairly sure but this isn’t an essay that requires references (though I may write something along those lines in the future).

So I am going to have to think long and hard about how to train myself to have this skill. I hope you appreciate this post.

Cheers,
Rumanshi.

Update: I’m Alive, Again.

Hello everyone!

It’s been a while, no?  Yeah, sorry about my disappearance.   It wasn’t on purpose, I swear…  (It totally was, my laziness bites again).  So, why am I back?

IT’S TIME TO BEAT THE BEAST (The beast being my mindset).   I’ve been reading a lot of stuff, listening to a lot of audio-books and just plain old trying to improve.  Am looking at doing some online courses and developing some skills as well.  However, that isn’t too important right now.

ABOUT THE SCHEDULE 
This is a guideline for me to follow, for me to provide content to you!    If I miss something, it’s unfortunate, but I’ll attempt to make it up.  I’m studying on how to force through laziness and writers block and just a lack of creativity.   So, hopefully these lapses will stop happening and my editor will be happy with me (Shout to Planes, who keeps me sane).

THE SCHEDULE 

Monday  - Blog Post
Tuesday - IHUWS + Blog Post
Wednesday - League of Legends  +TV Episode Review 
Thursday - IHUWS + Blog Post 
Friday  - IHUWS   + Blog Post
Saturday - IHUWS + Random Game + Movie Review
Sunday  - League of Legends + Blog Post

As usual, this schedule could change for any number of things.  They include, but are not limited to:

  • I am lazy
  • I have university
  • I have work
  • I have jury duty
  • I haven’t got enough stocked
  • HOW DO I WRITE?
  • Where is all the good men gone?
  • I am sick
  • I am very sick
  • I am at the doctors
  • I am at hospital
  • I am dead
  • I am dead and have come back as a zombie
  • I have been turned into a vampire
  • I am frozen in time
  • YOU are frozen in time.

Well, I think that’s all of the reasons I can think of.  Or, I could think of more, but why would I?  It’s much more fun to make you think about the reasons I haven’t posted.

 

Any questions?    Ask away.

 

Cheers,
Rumanshi.

A mission of Minimization: Week 1; Day 1

Today, I start myself on a new era.   Gone are the days of excessive spending and self indulgence.  It is time to become a money saving scrooge.

So, the mission?  Minimize all expenditure and Maximize earnings.   I have splurged too long because I could.  I’m reducing the shit tonne of alcohol I consume (See that guys, improving!)  I’m budgeting and I am looking into all the things I have postponed.  I have been browsing investing, financial independence and AusFinance on reddit for too long, and it is time for me to put my money where my mouth is – Planning for the future, not indulging in the present.

Today, I have looked through what I have been spending monthly on things I barely use.

  • Splice Subscription ($7.99 a month)  — Removed
  • Crunchyroll Premium Subscription ($6.95 a month)   — Removed
  • Netflix ($17.99 a month) — I can’t remove this, as all my family uses it.  I will discuss with them before removing this one.
  • Amazon Prime Video ($6.95) — Not removed yet.
  • Stipe ($32 a month, split in half with my mate) —  Kept?  We do enjoy keeping the server up and we are unable to host it ourself with our internet *shrugs*   I will discuss it with him.

Okay, so let’s look at this with some maths…

$7.99 + $6.95 + $17.99 + $6.95 + $16 = $55.88 .

$55.88 * 12 = $670

For these five entertainment subscriptions (Music samples, streaming sites + A MC server), I will be spending $670 a year…  I dread to look at what I have spent on fast food, Cinema experiences and games in general if this is how I have been spending unconsciously.   Now, I don’t think it is necessary to cut everything out, but it is important to cut out a lot.    Now, reasonings for the ones which haven’t been discussed.

Splice – There is no need for me to have Music Samples.  If I want to make music, I’ll have to do it with what I have myself, not what others can give me.   I let the credits build up to almost 2,000 last time.  Let’s not do that again and just get rid of it.

Crunchyroll – The benefits I get from the premium subscription do not outweight the costs.   I just gotta learn to be patient and there won’t be a problem here.

Prime Video –  I was debating, but it’s gotta go.

Which will leave me with my two most expensive subscriptions…  Hopefully I can get rid of them too, as if I don’t, they will still be costing me $408 a year.   Hey, at least I’m saving $260 from getting rid of the other subscriptions, but still…

Well, this is the beginning of my journey into Min|Maxing my finances 😛  I hope you’ll join me on the way!

Other World’s Monster Breeder

Chapter 64 – Carolina´s Training

After confirming the status of Aphrodite, it is Carolina’s turn.

By the way, what does Carolina do all day?

I get the picture of her drinking tea while she reads gracefully, but what will she really do?

Along with her usual mysterious behaviour, her privacy is wrapped in mystery.

Why is that?
Because it’s a little scary to make sure…

However, well, it’s not like I can’t do anything if I get hurt.

It’s one chance in a thousand, so let’s take a look.

[One hundred and one… one hundred and two… one hundred and three… one hundred and four… one hundred and five…]

I could hear Carolina’s voice quietly saying numbers after walking for a while.

When I extended my sight to the person who was there… I was surprised by what I saw…

[Fun. Have you been out yet?]

Before Carolina was the figure of a Goblin Knight who was practicing using his weapon.

I wonder if he’s doing hard training.
The Goblin swinging his 《Iron Mace》 made by Sheryl looked tired as he was sweating.

[You cannot continue with this level of training… you are not qualified to be a familiar of Souta-sama.]

Apparently, Carolina seems to be training the Goblin Knight.

I was wondering why the goblin levels were rising recently even though they had not defeated monsters… the mystery has finally been solved.

Carolina is serious within the ball.

[You! Who said you could rest?]

[Gobu!?]

Carolina kicks a Goblin Knight’s foot with her own, wearing boots.

Oi, hey! Goblins!

If they are kicked by a beautiful girl dressed in a maid outfit… it’s a reward!

I’m getting impatient! Let’s switch!

It’s not impossible for me to use my 《Mental Manipulation》 skill if I am already using it.

System Message.
(Please choose the target monster.)

Aphrodite
Carolina Barton
Sheryl O’ Telrod.
Werewolf Man
Adamita Golem
Kedamaro
→Goblin Knight
Light Mash
Fire Fox
Mad Mash

I choose the Goblin Knight without delay, and I hope my spirit moves on.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The next time my conscience returns… my spirit had joined one of the Goblin knights.

[Go-Gobu!?]

What-what is this place?

I don’t know why, but my body is heavy, as though it’s being crushed.
My body was standing up, but it was feeling a wavering feeling.

[That one over there…]

[Gobu?]

[… Who said you could rest your hands?]

There was no trace of the respect that she usually shows me.
Carolina’s eyes looked down at me completely… as if she is seeing something disgusting.

[They will take responsibility as a group soon, I’ll raise the gravity from 5 times to 10 times from now on as a punishment.]

The next moment Carolina snapped her finger.
The burden on my body doubled… I won’t resist crawling on the ground.

I see…!
By the way, I heard it from Carolina earlier.

In the Capsule Ball time is slower… and it seems that this is an environment where it is difficult to get results even after training.

She thinks it’s impossible to get results with regular training and probably improves the gravity load using magic.

[Gobu….!]

No, no, no.
Even so… isn’t it harder than it needs to be?

The training has already reached the torture level due to the increase in gravity load from 5 to 10 times.

I was casually crushed to the ground, but it seems that the other Goblins knights were too.

[So… how long will you be sleeping?]

Carolina kicks an unforgivable kick to my face that was crawling across the floor.

[Gobuu~……❤]

She trampled on my face with leather boots and I let a miserable voice escape.

It’s one thing that as she swung her legs quickly toward me that was rolling on the floor… From the skirt of maid’s clothing, Carolina’s underwear appeared before my eyes.

They’re black.
Carolina’s black underwear combined with a garter belt was demonic!

From the view of Carolina’s skirt as I crawled across the floor, there was a spectacle of erotic violence.

I’d like to get a permanent residency under that skirt.

[Ku! What’s wrong… with that uncomfortable look?]

The pleasure of seeing the panties of a beautiful girl in a maid suit while you’re being despised…!

Every time I was trampled under Carolina’s feet, it seemed as if the sexual habit that did not spring from the depths of this body was going to do it.

[You… Why were you staring at my body while blinking while ago!?]

And naturally, Carolina wasn’t aware of me.

All the sins will be in the Goblin Knight.

Carolina was attractive with her usual and calm “Master”, but she also had another charm, the Carolina that now smashed my face on the floor and looked at me like rubbish.

Overwhelming good fortune!
I could die right here!!

[… I have doubts, really… are you a Goblin Knight?]

[Gobu!?]

This is bad.
Carolina was pointing at me, looking sceptical at me, that I wasn’t listening to what she was saying even though she was kicking me.

Until recently I had to be loving her underwear, but now I was lifting her skirt exposing my observation.

[Where you’re looking from, you’re human… I feel the same atmosphere as a human male.]

[……………..]

Carolina had already half realized that I had entered Goblin Knight’s body.

I’m so sorry!
In that case, bad luck!

I’ve got enough reward from Carolina… and it’s time to leave this in this point.

I soon decide to switch to the next demon using the 《Mental Manipulation》 skill.
