7 Day Fast: No Gaming! No Wrestling~!

Last week my friend told me that she was fasting from television for a week and I thought it interesting because I was thinking about fasting the past few weeks. When I was wondering about what I should fast, food came to mind first. Usually people sacrifice food for a few days, but then I thought, sure I could do without food for a day or two but it just wouldn't have that same oomph that my other poisons would. I'd have to say that the two most time consuming activities these past few months would be gaming and prowrestling. I was weighing out which one of these should I give up for a week. Then today I thought, you know what, God deserves the best of me, I've gotta give up both. So effective at 11:15 pm, Monday May 17th, 2009, I will sacrifice gaming and wrestling for 7 calendar days.

For those of you who don't know, since I graduated university last year, I've been job searching. It hasn't been quite successful yet but I remain hopeful. I'm hoping to use this time to concentrate more on the search (although I'm doing all I can at the moment) as well as studying up on the Word for wisdom and to challenge myself for God.

When I say wrestling, it does involve all the additional activities involved too. In case you think this all sounds trivial, let me give a projection of how many hours I will save during the week. The hours are based on trends of the past few weeks:

Wrestling-related:
3x Wrestling Shows (Raw, SD!, TNA Impact) = 6 hours
TNA Sacrifice PPV (on May 24th) = 3 hours
Reading F4W + WON newsletters = 1.5 hours
F4W/WO Radio Shows (2x Bryan and Vinny + 2 bonus listens, 3 Wrestling Observer Radios, 1 Figure Four Daily) = ~7 hours
Live Audio Wrestling radio show = 2 hours
Wasting time on F4W BOARD~! = ~2.5 hours

Gaming-related:
Team Fortress 2 (approx. 1 hour per day) = 7 hours
Xbox 360 gaming (approx 1.5 hour per day) = 10.5 hours
PSP gaming (approx. 1 hour per play, but not everyday) = 4 hours
other random gaming (Defense Grid, Plants vs Zombies, WC3) = 3 hours

Total Hours from above: 46.5 hours!

That is kind of scary come to think of it. Although in actuality the number is probably lower, closer to high-20's or low 30's, as usually I'm doing a number of them simultaneously. Regardless of, post-fast I'll have to work on cutting things down. I think it's funny that I'm going to be missing the TNA PPV next weekend, aptly titled Sacrifice. Yes, I'm sacrificing Sacrifice.

I'll have to write a follow-up post upon completion. It'll be interesting to see how this goes. Anyhow, take care for now. Later geeks!

    Thanks Michelle, much appreciated! Day 1 went pretty well, but there were long periods of boredom.

Have your say!
