Time For Self

Yesterday I played Team Fortress 2 for the first time in two months. I finally reached my 150 hour mark.

I love TF2, it’s my favourite game to play. I’m not amazing at it, but I make up for it with enthusiasm and my impressive number of deaths due to sacrificing myself for the greater good.

But I haven’t really played it since school started because every time I sat down to play I would sit in overwhelming guilt because I should have been doing something productive.

But as the end of the semester draws closer, I need to remind myself that sometimes I’m allowed to unproductively spend a little bit of time.

And so yesterday I did. I say down and played a half hour of TF2 and was extremely rusty, but I enjoyed myself. I missed playing games.

It’s different from procrastinating, I’m in no way condoning games over homework, but when my homework for the day is done, I have to be kinder to myself. I’m allowed to have fun and play video games, even if I’m a full time CreComm student.

My advice for my fellow students this week is this: take a 10 minute break, be kind to yourself and do something that you enjoy.
