This past weekend I felt horrible. It actually started Wed night and didn't let up until Sun night. Fortunately, I had just purchased Halo 3 with some birthday money, and since I couldn't do much of anything else, I spent a good part of 3 down days playing Halo online with XBox Live.
It was a lot of fun, but a huge time-killer. Now I understand why so many of my students don't seem to have enough time to complete their assignments... Halo is eating up an enormous amount of their free time. It would be eating up my time too, but I decided to unplug the XBox and leave it in my office... I simply lack self-control in this area.
