Hello, I’m Aerykah and I’m addicted to Sudoku. The first step to recovery is admitting that you have a problem. Right? Well, I have a problem: I love Sudoku puzzles! While Sudoku requires thought and concentration (among other things), it’s still so much fun!
My mom bought me a huge Sudoku puzzle book a while back and I’m working on finishing it. When I’m done with that one, I have another one that my brother bought for me. They insist on feeding my addiction. 😦
Honestly, Sudoku is addictive — for me it is, anyway. Once I’ve started a puzzle, I don’t want to put it down until I’ve finished it. I can sit and do Sudoku for hours. I can do it at home or in the car; while carrying on a conversation, watching a movie, or playing a game; while eating lunch or laying in bed; out by the pool or bundled up in blankets on the couch; early in the morning or late at night. Obviously, I’m not picky.
Recently, I’ve been doing some “Extreme Jumbo Sudoku” puzzles. They looked really intimidating, so I kept putting off trying to do one. Well, come to find out, they’re not so different from the regular puzzles. I fell asleep about 3/5 of the way through this one the other night and ended up dreaming about Sudoku. No, it wasn’t a nightmare… but it was extremely frustrating!
I really do think I’ve been doing too much Sudoku, though. Today I felt like, every time I closed my eyes, I could see little squares with numbers in them. Perhaps I should have my brother hide my puzzle book for a week and give my eyes and brain some time to recover… Probably won’t actually do that, but I am going to put the book away for a while. After all, it’s been cutting into my reading time and I can’t let that happen!
