    As the title says, I keep on meaning to study and then find that a distraction jumps in front of me... arghhh

    I know I am not going to be alone in this battle to focus, but how does everyone else resist the freedom of shooting zombies in order to study.

    It's Assassins Creed Brotherhood that's got me at the moment, need to finish that so that I can then finish Revelations ready for AC3! I really should study, but it never quite seems to work out that way! :(

    Tonight though, tonight I hold out high hopes of getting some studying done. . . . . . . . . .

    I'll let you know how many Romans i've killed in the morning! :D

    I figured out what's important to me. Plus I enjoy studying, anytime I can learn something new I dive right in. What I really think is distracting is my job. I waste 9 hours everyday :(

    I couldn't agree more about the 9 hours wasted everyday...

    I own an Xbox 360, and have been playing a lot of Red Dead Redemption lately, when I built a new PC earlier this year I purposely did not buy a new graphics card as I thought that if I do that then I face further distractions by going out and buying the latest games to play... instead when I do play games on the PC I found myself addicted to Plants vs Zombies (very basic game but highly addictive), or still at times playing Command & Conquer Generals / Zero Hour.

    Never really been a big game player.......but my god C&C generals/zero hour stole a good year or two of my life! Absolutely loved that game, had a couple of firends who also played and we used to play 3v3 all the. Can you still get a game online with it?

    One word, iPad! I can't keep off mine its ridiculous! If I'm not spending money online I'm playing games on it. I feel like I haven't done a cert for decades. It's only been 6 months! That is all, Jim

    Try having kids.
    the amount of time that you have left at the end of the day after pleasing them and then having to *talk* to the wife means that you don't have much time left :). You certainly can't do both!
    I tend to study and do an exam. Have a rest (play a game for a bit) and then stick my head down again.
    I still haven't finished fallout 3 GOY edition yet and that originally hit the shelves in 2008!
