(skip to bottom for video game party info)
I'm currently sitting in Bobst writing the paper for this class and since I've been writing papers for the past 2 weeks, I'm finding myself pretty unmotivated and incredibly distracted (curse you, facebook and twitter...)
Trying to keep myself focused, I decided to make a little game out paper writing. It's definitely not as fun as Pokemon or Super Smash Brothers (particularly because Bobst is a much more depressing arena than the Mushroom Kingdom and the like) but it has made staring at my computer a bit more fun. Here are my rules:
- Every time I finish one page, I get to eat a rice krispie treat, ritz bits cheese cracker pack or starburst.
- When an album finishes playing on my itunes, I get to go on facebook and twitter.
- When I FINALLY finish my paper, I get to leave Bobst, go home and read my new issue of Cosmo.
I've only been able to eat one rice krispie treat so far so I have a ways to go still... but my new game is already helping me stay motivated and focused... I highly encourage my fellow classmates to try it out, changing the rewards as you see fit.
Good luck with finals and papers!
Peace, Love and 1-Ups,
P.S. For those who left immediately after class on Friday, a few of us gaming addicts have decided to organize a little video game party (I do believe it is girls vs. guys). Tentatively, it will be this Friday 12/17 around 5pm at my apartment so if you are interested, look me up on facebook and I'll get back to ya! Of course, I will be not be checking fbook until after this Kingdom Hearts soundtrack ends...
