More than anything else stress makes me work, but it also makes me want to game.
This impossible situation leads to a closely matched mental battle that boils away as I try to stay focused.
Usually when i feel myself distracted by something i just need to remove it, or myself to a more secluded environment where I can study uninterrupted. The problem is, like most university students my work centers around my computer and my gaming is also centered on my PC.
It the one distraction i cant escape.
Sometimes I think i might uninstall my favorite games as a way of avoiding them but i can never bring myself to do it. So i think, I’ll create a separate account on my PC that can only access the stuff i need to study…but then i never log into it. For me what it comes down to is wants and requirements.
When I want to do a assessment i never find myself troubled by distractions. But that assignment becomes on in itself. I can avoid doing the work I don’t like by doing the work i do. Then i reward myself, for doing my work, with a few rounds of League of Legends and I feel like I’ve had a good day.
The problem is i haven’t done the work I need to do which is always they work that takes the longest, takes the most research and requires more academia than I can handle.
Do you ever get into this cycle? Are games the biggest distraction to your work?
