Reclaim my game

After another epic fail attempt at missing, I raged about how much I suck and how frustrating it is. On calming down, I decided that my problem is that I am still trying to play like I was told I should be able to play by someone with a play style that does not work for me.

This is my Myrm in all sorts of serious structure damage. My shields and armor regened while I was warping away. Everything was nicely red when I left.

Therefore, I will try to complete the mission I mistakenly accepted. After that, I am done running security missions unless I am part of a fleet. Maybe next year when I have time to focus on some combat abilities.
Once I have my Viator in hand, I will accept some contracts and see how that goes. I always liked the idea of transporting goods. Hopefully I don't lose a ton of money at it. I've read up on the scams and such and I plan to stick to moving peoples crap through high sec and maybe low but I don't see myself venturing into null for that type of thing. There is way to much to learn about null still, and frankly I just don't find it appealing right now.

So, reinvigorated and avoiding working at work, I spent some time looking at how long it will take me to turn into a decent logistics character. The end total is about, the start of May.

Cruisers V alone is going to take 20 days. I have up to cruisers 4. Then Logistics 5 will take 31 days to train from 1-5. There are two other skills I have to take to 5. One will take 4 days and the other 9. So, those two skills will land me right at the start of may. Plus, I'll need to finish targeting to five, multitasking to five, and finish some of my basic skills up to 5 as well.

So, by may, I'll be a functional logistics pilot. I'm hoping that achieving one of my goals that way will help me shed the negative words that are hanging from me and dragging down my playing. Then, in six months or maybe we'll be reasonable and say 12 months, I'll be posting about how amazing I am. I doubt it, but after a bunch of down days I really do hope so. I'm totally addicted to the freaking game. I also don't want to keep seeing the learning curve image. I know that people find it fascinating but, I'm tired of it.
Plus, the logi path is right on par with the carrier path.

Then I looked up the price of the logistics skill book. It is 34 mil. Right on par with transport ships which is also 34 mil. It isn't that I can't afford them its that I'm an isk whore and hate spending it. Of course, I stupidly wrote the previous part of this paragraph and then looked up the carrier skill book.

Since I hate myself I looked up the ship cost as well.

So, we have some more isk to make.
