Can’t I Play Video Games, Instead?


These papers are a┬álong, tedious process. It does not help that I am constantly getting distracted by this, that, and the other thing. It’s only a five paragraph essay, I GOT THIS! One paragraph down, four more to go. Just need to reread this tale, The Griffin, because I got two paragraphs into my paper and realized I was blending The Griffin with Iron Hans. I have no idea how this was happening, I just know that it did. Homework for all my classes should be the same so we just have to do it once on one day of the week and are then done with it. Ah, but only in a perfect world that doesn’t exist in this dimension.

Instead, this minuscule voice repeats over and over in my head, “Just play for twenty minutes, loosen up. You mind will be cleared and then you can easily finish writing that paper.” Little does this voice know, I have homework for other classes. And twenty minutes? HA, she makes me laugh.

I suppose I should (part of homework, eliminate can’t, should, and shut up from our vocab). I suppose I WILL get back to work.

Today’s blog is brought to you by Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag.

I am ecstatic to be picking up my reserved copy tonight! For those of you who did not reserve your copy, you have to wait until tomorrow. Shh, don’t tell little man how excited I am for this game, he might get offended.

I love ubisoft for coming out with this game so soon. I have time, not only to buy it before my son is born, but to play and beat one more game before diapers and bottles and sleep deprivation replace my gaming for the next several years.

Video game life, I will miss you dearly. The next time I see you again will be in the toddler video game world. Hopefully, by then though he’ll be decently sleep trained so that mommy can have video game time after bed time but I’m not counting on it much

*Right hand on game case* I promise, I will take full advantage of my last video game as a single, childless gamer until we meet again when my chid will be introduced to the gaming world.
