I was playing video games very seriously and I said to myself:
1) "If I were half as serious about my life (as I am while playing video games) I'd be a millionaire now."
My question is do I need to mention 'playing video games' or is it implied from the context?
I was looking at a picture and said:
2) I wish my genetics were half as good (as his).
Same questions- Is 'as his' required?
