The Sims 2 University. A new addiction!Ever since I played The Sims 2 and found out that they were working on an expansion pack that introduced the "young adult" stage in life where sims can now go to college, I've wanted said expansion pack.

And it's been out for 5 days now!

But, I've refrained. I've had the money and the time to get it, but I know I don't really have the time to play it. I could make time, but that could be dangerous. I might not get things done. AT. ALL. My grades would drop and then I'd be just like Peter, my douche bag roommate from last year who nearly failed two of his classes because all he did was play computer games.

Besides, that's not me. I don't play computer games that much. I've been really focused on my studies as of late, and I've been doing amazingly well this semester. That's not to say that the temptation isn't there though. I've wanted to play, I just haven't.

But, if I get it for my birthday...Well, I think I'll just gaze at the box and the pictures and pretend that I'm playing it mentally. That should be ok, right?

That is, of course, if I can refrain from installing it to look at it. Then clicking on the new features just to see how they work, seeing the new objects, jobs, and then playing it.

Clearly it's not a good idea to obtain the expansion pack right now. I know I could control myself, but I don't know for how long. I think once my mind realized my hands were holding on to the box, things might change.

And right now, and until after Nationals and Spring Break, I can't afford to have things (i.e. grades, speech performances, reading and comprehension of material) change--unless it's for the better. The expansion pack, I fear, would do just the opposite.
