Life lessons from Candy Crush

I don't know about you guys, but I recently got hooked on this drug game called Candy Crush. My goodness, I never knew such a seemingly simple cellphone game can be so addictive! I'm a late comer to the game, with most of my Facebook contacts now in the 100+ levels (Hello Jen Cruz at Level 350)! I have my husband to blame for this addiction - I saw him playing it on his phone one day, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Funny how you realize some pretty deep stuff when playing the game. Here are the Top 5 Life Lessons I learned from Candy Crush. Haha.

1. Don't waste your time/moves on meaningless things.
Like no-brainer 3-candy switches that lead to nothing.

2. Delay gratification.
Forming the 5-candy combo is sweeter than the instant gratification of a striped jelly bean.

3. If you don't learn to let go, you'll never know what good things are in store for you.
Like how sometimes you think you've got no other good moves so you go ahead and dejectedly use up the chocolate bomb you've been saving, and whaddayouknow! The next candies that come crashing form multiple combos on the screen. Coolness!

4. Life is like a box of chocolates, you'll never know what you're gonna get. Or when. Damn that chocolate.

5. No matter how much you plan ahead, shit happens.
Like when you're saving that chocolate bomb for later, then you do a seemingly harmless switch and all the other candies come crashing down on it and it detonates prematurely. Shet.
