A New Obsession

As I may have mentioned, I maintain the Policy of not having any, and I mean any games on any of my devices. Mainly because I know that once I've downloaded a game, I've already passed the point of no return. As in, once-I-download-it-that-is-all-I'm-ever-going-to-do. Quite frankly, I already have too many things available to distract me from any homework that I should be doing, including eating (my personal favorite), sleeping (only naps though), lounging (now that's what I'm talking about), and of course, the infamous YouTube.

As you may have guessed, YouTube is the greatest distraction of all. The main reason YouTube is such a struggle is because whenever a teacher of links a video related to a homework assignment that opens in YouTube... Well, that's just asking for it because once YouTube has been opened, it certainly isn't closing. And the worst (or best, depends on how you look at it) part of YouTube is the fact that once you've watched a few videos related to a certain topic, more and more videos related to the same topic appear on the side panels and the second the video is finished.

Essentially, I could waste several hours mindlessly entertaining myself with videos.

Now, dealing with YouTube is one thing, dealing with a game on a device is a completely different situation. And although I have thus far maintained a strict policy of not having any games on my devices, I decided today was the day for a petty indulgence. So, with reluctance but also relief, I download the absolute best game ever,
                              Image result for word streak with friends,

a glorious game that is arguably educational. I mean, the basic premise is that you make words. And words are educational right?

In a single day, I've become so engrossed in this game (which I wanted to prevent all along), to the extent that I've been screenshotting ghe "highlights" of my endeavors as if this is a sport. So now I clearly see the point that parents and teachers share regarding games: they're distracting. And I testify that yes, in fact they are. Here's the evidence to prove it:

2.7 Hours! Or, when converted into minutes: a lot. And when also converted into time wasted: a lot. Worth it though. (Not really I'm just trying to convince myself that it was.)

 And here comes the "highlight" reel we've all been waiting for. (And by all I mean no one). 
My first ever Tournament victory:
                                               
And that's about it. Sorry to bore you. That's all for now. (Look, I was desperate for posting content and this is the best I've got so that's how it's going to be unfortunately.)
