Video Games

I love a good video game.  I stopped playing them for a while and now that I’m have resumed, I remember how much I love them.  People say they’re bad for you.  Perhaps they’re right, but only in extreme quantities.  I think people can learn a lot from video games, I sure have.  They keep you alert for one.  I don’t know of any video game where you don’t have to stay on your toes and figure out the next move before something happens, or you’re constantly moving like in a race, dancing, or sport.  Many of them involve using strategies, so you have to use your brain to figure out what to do, and how to do it the best way, and quickly.  Especially the war type games.  Sure they tend to be violent, but you really still learn a lot, and you get good reflexes.  If you play the brainer games or trivia type games, you learn information, some useful, some not, but you still learn.  It also teaches you committment.  You have to commit to these games to get to the highest levels, you can’t give up, you need to have stamina and endurance.  Sure that can be seen as addiction, but still, it’s a form of committment right?  Just sayn’…………..


Mistresses – BBC Series

Mistresses is a very interesting show.  I can see how these ladies can get trapped in these types of situations.  Not all of them are innocent of course.  But hormones and emotions have funny way of encouraging us to do things we know we shouldn’t be doing.  Somehow we slowly start to allow ourselves to believe “this is okay because…” whether it’s the first time we’ve ever down anything bad or we think we or someone else deserves it, we trick ourselves into giving ourselves the go ahead to do something foolish and wrong.  Sometimes we’re just so fed up with things that we just don’t care altogether, for that moment anyways.  We’re also pretty good at blocking out those responsible thoughts when we’re trying to satisfy a particular need.  At the end of the day we know nothing truly justifies our behavior, yet we can see how people are driven to do such things.
