Playing computer games when I should be studying

I have lots of things I should be doing. I should be working on my qualifying exam, which is this long paper which has to be researched and all that stuff. I am writing it, but it's pretty slow. Also, I should be constantly designing new experiments, and recruiting subjects, and running in my own experiments. I am doing these things, but it all feels kind of half-assed. What I'm all about is playing with this WWII strategy game I downloaded a couple of months ago. It's really hard to stop, and I've wasted many, many hours playing with it instead of reading/writing/programming. I am supposed to be a grownup doing work, not a kid playing video games. I am completely and hugely an idiot.


  1. Me too. we should discuss what it means to be grownups on our trip down to austin. we'll have the time, i mean. i don't quite get what i need to do to become grownup, though some people our age see to be settling in quite nicely.

  2. well, now you guys need to figure out another time to talk about the meaning of "grownups"~~~ Could I join too -- I'm reading junk news everyday.:)
