Holidays Are Over

After four weeks of doing nothing but playing games(and a few hours of studying), I'm sad to say that I have school tomorrow, what's worse is that I've got exams for the next two weeks. I've got one exam around noon tomorrow, so i don't have to come in at 7, when it's freezing cold. I might post a quick blog after each exam, just to talk about how it went. I have a feeling this year will be extra tough, so wish me luck!
Our internet still isn't fixed, they still have problems with their servers, but why are we the only ones who get stuck without internet for a month? This is getting beyond ridiculous.
I've been playing a lot of SimCity 4 lately, I've always playing it in short bursts, and after 5 years-I think- it's still one of my favourite games ever. I turned my modest 5000 sim town into a bustling metropolis of over 400000 sims in a matter of days. I've found that if you spammed toll booths on avenues and highways, and then made these highways the only route to/from a high-traffic area, it'll generate thousands in profit, which will allow you to lower taxes, and have zone demand skyrocket.
January seems to be a slow month in terms of game releases, the only noteworthy title I think is Skate 2, which I probably won't buy anyways, since I'm not a fan of skating games. I will try out the demo when it hits though. I've been playing through old games like Battlefeild Bad Company too, one thing that really pissed me off when I put in Deadspace, was that my save file has been corrupted!  7 hours of leveling up, killing monsters, and getting the shit scared out of me! ALL GONE! I was beyond pissed off when it said that the save data was corrupted. There's no way I'm playing through it again anytime soon, It's a shame I can't sell it, since the trade-in values are so shitty right now that I won't even be able to trade it in for another game, or cash. I want to play through Uncharted and Metal Gear again, but I let my friend borrow them, I'll ask him for it next week hopefully, he doesn't even play them I think, he's too caught up in playing GTA4.
Anyways that's all I got on my mind today, I'll be posting about my exams throughout the week and after that it's back to the normal, monotonous school life.

School is tomorrow for me too. I feel like I could still play so many more games, but I guess I will have to go back eventually.

I have school tomorrow as well. Congrats on the SimCity stuff. I've always enjoyed the SimCity games. Sorry to hear about your Dead Space file though.

School on Tuesday for me. Kinda scared though...not because of my classes...but I'm a senior, so it's all coming to an end real soon.

@ TheGTAvaccine
Yeah, it is scary, I'm a senior too, and knowing that after this year I probably won't see most of my friends anymore is more than enough to keep me up all night, just thinking about it.

I have to go back to work Tuesday and back to school on Thursday.  I don't really mind it.  All my classes this semester are going to be fun as hell and work is always a breeze.  Also, it gets a little boring after three weeks of doing nothing by playing games and watching movies/TV.  I need something to do at all times.
