Phils day off 1- metaphysics

for my metaphysics phils day off, i went more into how our perception of things affects the flow of time based on how we view whatever it is we are doing. so for this experiment, i spent an hour playing video games and it seemed as if only 20 minutes had passed as i was having fun and wasn’t thinking to much about the passage of time. After this, i spent an hour doing nothing but lying on my bed and i found that as i perceived this action as negative; in this case boring, i found that time seemed to move much slower for me than it  had when i was playing games. So based upon these results, i have to conclude that the idiom time flies when you’re having fun is actually true to some degree as your perception of whatever action you are doing affects your own personal view of time progression.
