There's no risk of anyone catching up to you, so I'd say you're safe to concentrate on your exam
Besides, that stuff is important. It's nothing like the saturday games anyway, it'll just be one or two games here and there, probably with very few people, nothing at all like 4 hours of concentrated gaming.
Oh, another thing. Interesting tidbit: Gaming is the best painkiller I know of. Once I immerse myself in a good game, real-world pain just doesn't register
The type of game really doesn't matter either, as long as it's good enough to keep my attention locked. Who needs pills, anyway? I bet it's healthier too instead of pumping myself full of medication.
comes with cable TV which I don't use at all
Heh, I've got the exact same attitude towards cable TV. I have it, but I don't use it. Here, it's not a matter of a cable line being cheaper along with TV though, it's simply a matter of it only being available period if you've got cable TV already. And since I can't opt out of cable TV where I live, it's the best choice for the money. In fact, just about the only times I use my TV is when Great Big Disasters happen somewhere in the world, or to watch DVDs. For everything else, like news, weather, etc., I use the computer.
