This writing challenge topic of yours, seems a bit difficult to write about, as honestly. But I’ve always tried to write honestly and even sometimes bitterly in all the writing challenge topics on Zabanshenas forum. I, myself, agree that I almost always write longer on these topics than you determined for those, before (one paragraph or two), and I may bother you with giving feedback on these writings of mine. But these writing challenge topics, in addition to improving English writing skills, are a great and excellent apportunity for self-analytical (self-knowing)
As I said earlier and I’ve already mentioned in the previous writing challenge topic of yours “Activities For Indoor Fun”, I, formerly, as a teenager and even, when I was a university student, I was a big fan of computer (video) games and I was extremely interested in playing with them. But eventually, I had to quit playing these games, suddenly, forever and as out of the blue. Regarding the feeling whom I had and how I felt that time, I can say that doing this one, incurred lots of psychological and emotional pressure on me and it was extremely hard and difficult for me. I was truly interested in computer games, as much as I could, I’ve been associating scientific works of mine in my academic field with the use of computer (video) games on teaching and learning process. Therefore, you can feel that giving up playing these games, has been the biggest challenge of quitting a bad and harmful personal habit, for me.
One of the worst habits of mine that I’ve been able to overcome and control (but only partially and in a limited way) it, to some extent, is my OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder) problem! This problem of mine, has always been a huge challenge for me. OCD is strongly correlated with the desire for perfection and perfectionism. One of the lessons in the course of “Original Lessons” of A. J. Hoge’s, named “Obsessive Behavior” and it’s about OCD problem in general and in English. Of course, many of A. J. Hoge’s expressions, aren’t true about me, at least, with regard to obsession with English. In my opinion, with the good overview that this lesson conveys to us about the OCD problem; But it has not been completely and entirely successful in showing all the least important aspects of this problem. On the other hand, this lesson, has been able to express obsession with English and English tests, totally, thoroughly and absolutely. However, I’ve been laughing a lot, at the content of all four sections of this lesson! In some parts of this lesson, I feel like “he’s talking to me, exactly!”
There are lots of bad personal habits of other people, that those really get on my nerves! From my point of view, habit of asking personal questions is definitely annoying and bothering for every one and there is no doubt about that. But the thing annoys me, more than anything else, any activity is accompanied by any extra sound. I hate if someone drinks or eats his / her drink or food with slurping and munching in front of me. That’s exactly when I’m most likely going to get angry with them! I often warn this bad habit of all the people around me. Nevertheless so far, I haven’t obtained (gotten) any results, in this regard.
