    Default How do you manage to live your lives while watching anime?

    Just wanted to ask this question, because I am really more worried about myself and my future, since I watch anime without much restraint, I would like to know how everyone else has managed to do it, or have been successful by their own definition, or how does everyone schedule their lives to fit anime, work, and etc.
    Cause without trying to reveal too much about myself, I am a college student, and I am worried about how my grades will suffer, because I like to watch anime.

    Thank you very much in advanced.

    Well its all about restraining yourself and setting priorities.

    I know a guy who dropped out of university because he was playing too much Playstation, I also know a guy who got divorced because he couldn't stop playing World of Warcraft. Those are exceptions but it happens when people lose control over their lives.

    Media is a good escape from reality, especially if reality is shitty. However, no matter if books, movies or games it shouldn't prevent someone to live their lives and forget everything. It's better to get a grip and manage to schedule your daily life accordingly, for example allowing yourself to just watch Anime between 8pm and 11pm.

    I agree with @Spiritogre. *nods*

    You can have a planner, try Google Calendar and plan out your day or set rules. Or set your router to turn off your internet or block certain sites on certain hours (my router can do that).

    And if you break them, give a punishment to yourself like not watching anime for a week or not eating your favorite food for a week.

    Most importantly, study first. Do not focus on something that won't make your life great.

    I've grown watching anime, and honestly, you really have nothing to lose if you don't watch it all the time.

    The most important thing one should have is Self-Discipline. As what @Spiritogre said you should really restrain yourself and not make is a habit that will basically damage or ruin your life.
