The True Secret to Happiness….
A few months ago…
I started playing this computer game called Runescape. I played it as a kid but I never really ‘played’ it.
What I mean is, back in the day when I was in sixth grade all the way to my freshmen year of high school. Whenever I would play, I would just goof around with my friends and kill people for their items.
It was fun in all but I knew there was more to it.
So when I came back in the winter of 2018. I played for a little while. But instead of playing the game to just kill people for their items. I built my account around the idea of killing this bird called Armadyl.
The bird dropped armadyl items that were anywhere from 30 to 50m in price.
The armadyl items were very exciting to see on the ground whenever you got them as drop because they showed up in a purple text. (A normal item would usually show up as white text or blue if it was above 20k in value) So it was very rewarding to see that purple text because I would I spend at least 45k or 45,000 coins per armadyl kill.
And I mean, when I first started killing this bird. I could usually only get 15 to 20 kills a trip.
However, after meeting a special friend called thery on the game. He showed me how to farm the bird and get like 100 to 200 kills a trip using an alt (an alternative account that resupplied me on food and resources)
That made me very happy because I loved loved loved killing this bird. It was my favorite boss in the entire game. Like I built my entire account based around killing this bird entirely. I would go to sleep dreaming about this bird…
Just seeing those armadyl chainskirt drops and armadyl chestplate drops would bring a smile to my face.
Then after two months of killing armadyl, I went from a 117m total bank to well over 700m+. And I felt very very fulfilled on runescape because I put in the hours. I put in the work. I invested the gp into this boss.
Like there was one day, when I first joined the clan where I meet thery. Where I literally had 10m cash. I sold all my raids gear so I couldn’t raid. And decided to buy 3k black chinchompers to kill armadyl with.
It was an investment…
…and I ended up turning those 3k black chinchompers into about 45m overnight.
I ended up sniping 2 armadyl chestplates, 2 armadyl chainskirts and one armadyl hilt over the next few days (which all of these items were above 15m at the time)
And I remember telling thery during the middle of the trip…
“I don’t want this ever to end, this the best armadyl experience I’ve ever had” and I just felt so fulfilled.
Then I went onto get featured on one of the biggest runescape youtube channels for my armadyl luck and I built some of the best friendships I possibly have created on that game.
I was known in the clan as the armadyl guy because EVERYDAY someone would check discord. They would see armadyl chainskirt or armadyl chestplate drops in my name.
I went three weeks straight where I didn’t go a single day where I hadn’t gotten an armadyl chainskirt or armadyl chestplate drop (or someone I was with got one)
And it was just an incredible feeling,
So the secret to true happiness is fulfillment
Do what you love and love doing it 😛
