What Spring Break Looks Like For a Gamer
After a cold winter, daydreams of warmer weather and no school seem to be on every kid’s mind, especially yours. The thoughts of no homework, staying up late, and sleeping in during spring break are just enough to pull any kid out of that cold-weather rut. For most, this break is an opportunity to spend extra time with friends, go on a family vacation, or sit back and do absolutely nothing for seven days.
But for us gamers, the time away from school is especially awesome. You get to spend all of those extra hours getting lost in the world of your favorite video or computer game. Here is a typical day in life of a gamer during spring break:
After a long night of gaming, you get to sleep in way past your alarm. That is… until your mom bursts into your room and turns on the light.
You hop in the shower, but instead of singing your favorite shower tunes, all you can think about is what you need to get to the next level in Wizard101.
After your shower, you run downstairs for a quick breakfast. The faster you (or your parent!) can cook, the faster you can log in to your game and get your day started.
When your brother comes into your room asking if he can borrow the computer to Google something, this is how you feel. Yeah right, bro!
At 1 p.m., you realize you’re still in your PJs. You don’t care.
For lunch, you master the art of multitasking by holding a sandwich in one hand and your computer mouse in the other.
After lunch, your best friend calls and asks if you want to come over and quest some in Pirate101. Your response:
When said friend claims he’s better at the game than you, you’re just kind of like:
After 30 minutes of game time, you finallllllly defeat him, and this is your face:
By now, it’s 6 p.m. and your mom is forcing you to come home for dinner. How unfair! You guys were so close to beating the highest level!
After dinner, your mom and dad tell you it’s time to take a break from the games and encourage you to read a book for a little while. How dare they?!
After proving to your mom that you can survive a few hours without your game, she allows 30 minutes of play before bed. Yes! She’s the best!
But before you know it, those 30 minutes are over. You try to sneak some more game time in, but you can hear your mom coming up the stairs… Guess it’s time for bed before you get in trouble!
