i used to spend all my time playing video games, watching anime, movies, and tv shows. now i've dropped that, completely cut that shit from my life. i was an introvert most of my life i'll be damned if i'm going to spend the rest of my life like that. so i've been going out a lot and actually breaking through my (very small) comfort barriers. but a question i get asked alot is 'what do you like to do?' or something like that. but the thing is after i've gotten rid of my shitty old life i haven't replaced it with anything. i just go to school, learn more about dieting (recently turned vegetarian) and fitness (want to bulk up and stop being so skinny), and 'sarge' at nightclubs. but besides that there is nothing else.

so i've always wanted to box and play the guitar. i might start that. but just wandering what are other peoples lives made up of? how many people here live an interesting life?

My life is basically made up of eating, working out, running, cycling, swimming, walking around, typing shit, reading, going out drinking, talking to girls, having sex and doing whatever I want in between these things

go boxing :)

I was a full time gamer, like 8 hours after working, almost no sleep...

Now I'm a full time martial artist :D doing BJJ, standupand strength training. It got hard to find time to go out :)
But I'm a complete different person now and would never want to change back again.

Oh, and read a LOT of books, civilize the mind and savage the body.

If you want to bulk up, www.startingstrengthwiki.com and eat A LOT (please quit being a vegetarian, you don't make the world a better place and it is so sad to see guys and girls I know doing this... They start to get aggresive easy now, are REALLY skinny and don't look healthy at all. Maybe you can do it with a lot of research and discipline, but the mainstream vegetarianism just SUCKS... oh and meat is just so delicious :P)
I was super skinny and got like 12kg, still going up. Aiming for 12 more for the next years...

I skateboard, play basketball, read great books, meditate, use creative visualization (Imagining the ideal you. Closing your eyes, and picturing your highest self, your absolute best self, OWNING who your are, acting ideally, appropriately and successfully in all situations. It's a great exercise to do for picturing being great with women, how you would act around them, how much they would love you, etc.)

journal, writing sesh's (Just writing down my thoughts in the moment, and emotions and the way I've been feeling lately), go for walks, collin with friends, partying, dancing, kickin', all kinds of shit. I def lead an interesting life

i think this is one of the key paradigm shifts. doing things for the experience itself, vs doing things because you're mentally gratified from it. alas I'm not there yet so I can't be certain, but my guess is, getting hobbies that stimulate your senses is a good idea. musical instrument, martial arts, go for walks in the park, try to write stuff.

I read books, blogs and forums. I do a lot of programming (mostly 3D graphics) and I study IT in the university. I get together with my friends couple a times a week, but almost always go out solo. I eat healthy, keep myself fit. I learn social dynamics and self-actualization, work on my sticking points and limiting beliefs. I try to be in the now.

thanks for the replies guys. good to see other people living doing what they want and not just what is expected of them by society.

about my vegetarianism and wanting to bulk up, its no problem. the main problem that people have when they go vegetarian is that the dont replace the loss calories from meat, they either cut it out entirely or replace it with just fruit and vegetables. unfortunately while fruit and vegetables are high in micronutrients they are low (with exceptions) in other macronutrients, namely protein and fat. i have, however replaced that with eating lots of nuts, and just plain eating more. i have since GAINED 2 kg since the start of the year when i decided to turn vegetarian and i havent even started weight training yet.

thanks for the link hehejo. i actually just finished reading starting strength because i was sick of using machines at gyms that trainers always want you to do instead of dumbell training. even when i specifically asked them a few years ago i wanted to bulk up they just got me to do more machines training the same muscles over and over. needless to say i had a lot of problems there.

I like this post, I've also questioned myself a few times thinking 'I need something more to my life' when I stopped playing sports.. I need something that is me, that is who I am.  Before I was a lacrosse player, I lived and breathed lacrosse, now I have hung up the cleats, I need a new me, now that the Lacrosse chapter is done with.

Right now I'm a full time student, and I go to the gym alot.  I love college, and have been recently putting in a lot of thought as to what I want to do when I get out -- thus affecting which classes I want to take.  I've also wanted to look into taking up boxing, its something I've always wanted to do, and now that I dont play sports (competively) anymore, I need something to push myself. I started taking a liking into Golf also.

Along with reading up on things such as RSD, I have books on personal financial success, investing, as well as reading Mastery by George Leonard.  If you have any free time, instead of watching TV, grab a book and just read up on something you would like to learn more about. For example, I think my next one will be something along the lines of Wine.  I am clueless about Wine and I feel like I should know a thing or two about it.  Wine for Dummies maybe.

Let us know how you go in a month or so, or just keep track of your progress to yourself, it will be cool to look back on.  Good luck with your adventures and finding the new you!

Sounds like you've replaced it with quite a lot!

Going out to clubs and meeting women is a pretty big deal, when you weren't previously into it.  The real world can be infinitely more interesting than video game world, if you give it a chance.
