Video game burnout.

So something has happened lately and it's something that I never really thought would happen.  I'm too busy for video games. 

See, I'm a college student learning computer animation and that's a dream I've had since I was very young.  During school, I work 12 - 14 hour days most of the time and that leaves no time for games.  Now that I'm out for the summer, I find it difficult to get back into gaming.  I feel as if I should be doing school work.  I have a strong urge to play games, but when I look at my collection, nothing catches my eye.  I've tried to finish Final Fantasy 13, and I'm finally at a point where I can grind a bit...  I just don't want to play.  I started a game of Okami and that seems to be going well, but I still feel as if I should be doing something else.

I hope this doesn't last because I really love games.  But if this is what it takes to finally become an animator, maybe I'll be making games or movies.  Who knows.  I guess it's worth it.
