Look I have terrible patience okay? So bad patience in fact i’ve run out ofpatience for my patience and i’m making a video about it! .

.

.

thats a lot of patience.

I mean take this script for example; everytime I’ve tried writing something comedic for this script I’ve given up and just thrownall clever and original ideas out the window and decided on some terrible joke that breaks the fourth wall! pretty boring and lame right? .

.

.

please laugh.

But the worst thing is that im impatient inone of the worst ways possible I OBSESS over time.

“woah madz that’s awesome! You must get loads of things done with allthat extra time!” *uncontrollable fake laugh* *inhales* no.

Thing is most of these decisions I chooseend up with me LOSING time in the long run.

I will pay a friend for a lift home thanksby the way, Ben and George), just to get home quicker and avoid the bus.

.

.

ugh.

But if I get home earlier then this usuallygoes through my head.

Oh man If I was taking the bus, I still wouldn’tbe home for another 40 minutes! .

.

.

my bus takes a lot of time.

Looks like it’s time for some video games! Then I end up wasting my time dieing in games like PUBG (eww I don’t play this anymore) and feel like a genuine buffoon.

Then I think to myself “man… did I justwaste £5 to get frustrated at a shooty-bangy explody game? Probably.

WHY DIDNT I JUST DO WORK ON THE BUS!! I HAVE A LAPTOP! But of course, being the buffoon I am, I neverrealise about the long term implications of something and only look at the short termgains! … why did saying that make me sound likeI know what I’m talking about? Well if that sentence made no sense to youI have several scenarios that I’ve gone through that demonstrate what you SHOULD NOTDO.

Such as, what happened exactly this time lastyear, my nintendo switch getting stolen… Wait that doesn’t really cover it let me givesome context on the story.

So back in January 2017 nintendo held thisSUPER AMAZING FUN COOL event in tokyo called “THE NINTENDO SWITCH PRESENTATION!” nowbeing a massive nintendo ner- I mean legend, I stayed up until 5AM with my bro to watchthis.

“Madz you were up till 5AM!? On a school night!? MAN, you must be really cool.

Indeed! It may have made me completely exhaustedfor the next day at college but for the amount of hype I got, I didn’t even need sleep.

So with me being so ecstatic I HAD to preorderit instantly.

I couldn’t contain my excitement for march3rd! I decided to preorder a switch with thosehip and cool millennial NEON CONTROLLERS! Along with this special edition of zelda becauseit came with a cool sword.

It’s… a pretty cool sword! …kinda… I almost snapped it like four times.

I usually never splurge out on those “MEGATURBO COLLECTOR EDITIONS” of games but c’mon guys, IT’S A ZELDA GAME.

DID YOU SEE THE TRAILER??? So for the next two months I was waiting!.

.

.

and waiting… and waiting.

.

.

AND WAITING Until it was finally.

.

.

The Big Day.

It was finally time! To wait some more for the package to finallyarrive… Wait did you notice something I said there? “Parcel” not parcels, PARCEL.

But I’m sure there’s nothing to worry about! Maybe they put both packages in the same box! The console might just be really light andsmall! THE SWITCH DIDN’T ARRIVE!! The anticipation… the wait… WHAT SORT OF TORTURE IS THIS!? REGGIE! YOU EVIL MAN! I got an email from amazon which went alongthe lines of “Hi there insert first name here! We apologise for any inconveniences this mayof caused, but your package out for delivery “Nintendo Switch Neon Red & Blue” mayhave been stolen or destroyed during shipment.

” What!? STOLEN OR DESTROYED!? That’s ridiculous! How crappy must amazons security be to havethat happen!? Now there’s probably some sneaky robberout there playing my favourite game and he didn’t even have to pay for it! However… We currently have one more “Nintendo SwitchNeon Red & Blue” in circulation for purchase! YES! Maybe I can play tomorrow! I’m fine with waiting ONE more day.

I can handle it.

Although the system is currently located inour department in Italy and may take up until late April or early May for dispatch.

Late April… Early May!?.

.

.

ITALY!? WHY ITALY!?!? This switch is pretty cool ey Luigi? So I have the GREATEST GAME EVER MADE andI won’t be able to play it until a month and a half at the least? WHAT AM I GONNA DO!? So I ended up cancelling my switch order andrequesting a refund from amazon; luckily amazon was NOT being a massive pile of human excrementand gave me back my money pronto.

Okay so just over an hour had passed and websiteafter website I saw only two words; SOLD and OUT.

I was beginning to give up hope… I was so close yet!.

.

.

I was so far…like 2, 500 kilometers far.

Then, I SAW IT! A NINTENDO SWITCH WAS ON SALE, AND TWO WEREIN STOCK! .

.

.

however it was £30 more than usual.

.

.

and only grey.

Come on madz, go for it and you’ll be ableto play the switch instantly!.

.

.

tomorrow.

Instantly tomorrow.

Madz don’t listen to him! You’ll save so much money if you wait awhile.

.

.

Yeah true, £300 is a bit steep.

.

.

Exactly! Don’t be a impulse buyer and think aboutthe long term! Too late, I bought it.

WHAT!? I’m finding that I keep making decisionsalways in the moment.

Then when my vision is less blurred and fuzzy, i realise I probably make a mistake.

There’s actually a study done for exactlythis topic called ‘the marshmallow experiment’ where scientists would offer a child two choices;they could either get a single marshmallow provided to them immediately, or two marshmallowsif they waited around 15 minutes.

They also sometimes give out pretzels insteadof marshmallow but the pretzel experiment sounds kind of funny.

In latter studies, these researchers foundthat children who were able to wait longer for the rewards tended to have better examscores, BMI, and educational attainment! Whatever that means.

And this perfectly fits in with the dumb decisionsI’ve been making! Like my friends giving me rides home I talkedabout earlier; I end up wasting that extra time because I’m looking at the small rewardof “ooo I can get home early!” rather than the bigger picture.

I’ve been actively trying to avoid thiskind of behavior for the past couple of months and it has actually improved my happinessas well as productivity! Such as doing work on the bus! And that’s it.

So, if you’re ever about to make a big decision, don’t always jump for the one which can give you that satisfaction.

Rather, you should think about the consequencesof your actions.
