Movie cravings, you experience it too?

There was a time I shared a post on my Face book wall 'I got a devil to fight'. It was on a Sunday morning and I was in the church. I got various comments which were mainly forms of encouragement, but a friend commented that the devil I had to fight was my craving for TV. Though I was referring to something entirely different at that time, that person was absolutely right because, now the devil isn't just my craving for TV but for movies which is worse. Worse because when the TV is not available for me to watch my favourite movies (mostly foreign); I just switch over to my laptop.
Geez! What a waste of precious time! This past break, I had a rich list of stuff I wanted to accomplish. I anticipated the fact that at the end of the break, I would feel so much more fulfilled as I would have done those important personal things that I put on hold due to my busy schedule. I planned to 'de-clutter' my closet, both physical and mental to accommodate fresh stuff.
As for the physical one, yes 'mission accomplished'. I gave out old stuff and got me some new clothes, cute tops and pencil jeans. However, for the mental closet, hmm! I over-cluttered it, not with ideas if not I would not be complaining; but with a series of movies. Well, they were very interesting I cannot deny that but please, watching a seasonal film all day into the night; wasting precious time of the day lying on the sofa (eyes wide open) even when I felt like a nap, and depriving myself of full nights' rest? To me, that's pathetic because the irony is that I did not work (to accomplish my plans) and I did not relax properly.
Actually, I spent my Christmas on the sofa in front of the TV, and was too engrossed to even send Xmas wishes.
My craving for movies, I got to overcome you.

    2. Hahahaha. . Novels? . I used to be addicted to them. and that landed me the position of "Secretary of Readers Club" when iwas in SS1,back then in my secondary school.I was so addicted that if you dared refuse me any novel, i'd hunt you down @ night en corner the novel for myself.lolz (i attended a boarding school) .En i loved the very big ones.The ones that were as big as a dictionary,if not bigger. Hahaha.But now, movies and surfing the internet are my fortes.I still manage to,once in a while,peruse a few novels when i have the chance.
