What is fun? App/TikTok

Roger Caillois, a french psychological anthropologist, studied this for his whole career and was able to break fun down into 4 types of play

Competition (games of agon)

"Allows you to stretch [your] skills to meet the challenge provided by the skills of the opponent"

Chance (games of alea)

Things like gambling, dice, bingo, etc are fun because they give you the illusion of controlling the future

Chaos (games of ilinx)

Anything that can scramble your sense of ordinary perception, which includes things like getting dizzy, skydiving, imbibing substances...

These allow you to temporally get out of your own head

Escapism (games of mimicry)

Anything that creates alternate realities ie dance, theater, or the arts in general

While you are enrolled in auto debit and in an active repayment status, your monthly auto debit will be made each month as noted on your monthly billing statement.

You may be eligible for a .25% interest rate reduction*.

* Your lender may modify or terminate its borrower benefit program at its discretion and without prior notice. Your failure to satisfy benefit eligibility requirements may result in the loss of benefit. Some lenders do not offer this benefit.

**Certain lenders, including the U.S. Department of Education, suspend the .25% interest rate reduction when your loan is not in an active repayment status.
