High school and college are often said to be the best years of your life – the golden age of youth. But when students are struggling with juggling assignments, clubs, honor societies, athletics and more, they may feel a need to just escape.
And that’s where gaming comes in.
Video games allow you to immerse yourself in an entirely new world, one where you can choose who you want to be and what exciting new adventures you want to explore. Before you know it, reality melts away and leaves you lost in a place, unlike anything you’ve ever known.
The real world will still be there once you turn your game console off, so it’s essential that you learn to manage your time wisely. We want to make it easy for you – the team at GameTruck Atlanta is here to show you three ways to balance video games and schoolwork!
Get Homework done first!
Procrastination is a bad habit. Sure, it may feel good to relax a bit and put homework off until later – but the added stress you’ll feel once you realize you don’t have time to finish everything you need to do isn’t worth it.
Luckily, overcoming procrastination can be as easy as intentionally choosing to do your homework first and saving the fun, as in gaming, for after you’re finished.
It’s like dessert. Parents always say to eat vegetables first to get them over with and enjoy dessert later so you don’t spoil your dinner. Getting rid of homework first frees up more time to enjoy fun activities without deadlines looming over you while you play.
Set aside specific times for gaming
Even if you don’t keep a planner, it’s a good idea to schedule a specific time for gaming. That way, you get that essential ‘me’ time without cutting into the time you’ve set aside for other tasks.
If your homework varies in amount or type every day, try to be flexible with your start time. Your end-time should be the same every day, however. Setting an alarm is one way to remind yourself that you shouldn’t keep playing into the night. Make sure it’s a noise you’ll be able to hear over the sounds of your game.
Finish at least 1 hour before going to sleep
With all of the homework and after-school activities students have, you might find that the only time you have available for gaming is late at night. That’s fine! You need to find time to do things you enjoy – but remember to switch off the console or PC at least 1 hour before going to bed to have a good night’s sleep.
Scientists have found that interacting with electronics, and video games in particular, so close to bedtime can harm your vision and prevent successful REM sleep. This can lead to a slew of consequences, including waking up in the middle of the night, nightmares, and being lethargic and exhausted upon waking up.
Staying awake during classes is hard enough – why set yourself back even more?
GameTruck has a solution
Getting tired of the playing the same games every day? Switch things up with GameTruck’s personalized parties! The Atlanta team has 60+ games and all the latest consoles, including XBox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, so you can finally have time to defeat that Bloodborne boss you’ve been fighting for weeks.

The fourth of July is easily one of the most exciting holidays of the year, and everyone likes to enjoy the sunny weather by celebrating outside with plenty of food, friends, and fireworks! But just like with any holiday, it can be a bit stressful – especially if you plan on throwing your own celebration rather than attending one this year.
If you want to throw an Independence Day bash that is kid-friendly and parent-approved, you still have plenty of time to organize a successful party. Your friends at Game Truck Richmond have compiled five expert tips for throwing the best July 4th party this year!
1. Organization is Key
It’s easy to get overwhelmed when trying to arrange the best Independence Day party for your guests. Make sure you keep a checklist so that everything you plan can be easily checked off.
Don’t forget to create a guest list to project how much food you need to prepare and how to arrange the party layout. And remember to set your budget ahead of time so that you don’t get carried away!
2. Check the Weather
Regardless of whether you plan your Independence Day bash to be inside or outside, it’s essential to check the weather. Thunderstorms can quickly ruin an outdoor party, so plan to have a backup option! Make sure an indoor space is ready if needed.
Let’s cut to the chase here – a party lacking food can turn from good to bad in seconds.
Make sure when preparing for your guests that you make (or order) food that is easy to eat; otherwise, your party goers will want to wander around and eat on the go. Burgers, hot dogs, fruit kabobs, cookies or brownies are all simple foods that are incredibly delicious for both kids and adults.
Thinking of party games for kids can be a difficult task because you want to ensure that kids of all ages are having fun. Fun and age-friendly games such as laser tag, water tag, and bubble soccer are simple and will keep the kids entertained for hours. But if you want to get bonus points for party planning, book Gametruck Richmond and ensure that your guests stay entertained for hours!
It can’t be a Fourth of July party without fireworks, can it? If your state allows it, you can purchase and set off fireworks from the comfort of your home. If this isn’t the case, you can plan the party accordingly so that your guests can walk or drive to a nearby fireworks show!
