I tried some hunting this morning...

I tried to hunt some guys down in my home system. I failed. I did make the effort.

First, I blame my auto dock reaction. The guy had come through in a scanning heron while I was doing a site. I commented to him that he never talks to me. I talk in local. I can often get people to talk to me. Maybe I am odd that way.

Anyway, he tells me that he does not speak English and that he is Chinese. He also said he was scanning. I said so was I. He said that made us enemies. I told him to bring the pewpew.

He left the system.

A bit later he came back with a cynabal and a drake. I was out in my cane. I did a quick status check and realized that both the cynabal pilot and the drake pilot are less then two months old. Interesting.

So, I talked to them some more while I got backup. In my mind, I realized that I should be able to tank them both and kill at least one. They have warrior 1's out and they are doing a site. I start to distract them as I try to find out where they are.

We have this conversation:
[12:17:59] Sugar Kyle > hi :D
[12:18:02] Sugar Kyle > bigger ships and friends today?
[12:18:37] 20 J > my buddy
[12:19:06] Sugar Kyle > I see
[12:19:17] Sugar Kyle > hes normally buzy squatting on the plex
[12:20:01] Falcon KF > I am isk farmer what they call me
[12:20:08] Sugar Kyle > yes that is what they would call you
[12:20:34] Sugar Kyle > what are you doing today?
[12:21:42] Falcon KF > no mind

The Falcon KF person I recognized as someone we had started to report as a bot in another system. At downtime I'd see him log on (I come home when the servers are rebooting) and go straight to a static 2/10 plex in a high sec pocket. He then spends 12 or so hours a day in that plex.

I've never seen him in something that was not an assault frigate. Today, he was in the cynabal. They lost the drake in the plex they were doing. I had scanned the system, so I can only assume they had an escalation from next door.

I reported him as an ISK farmer. He may have been joking with me. However, the signs were there. The nosy gamer was writing about the fact that the new Unified Inventory system has broken a lot of the botting programs out there.

I did not manage to get them. Just as a warpin was nailed they popped the overseer and ran.

Sigh.

I really am at an awkward phase where I want to do adult things but I am still in a pups body. I've been pretty pissed off recently, so its a bit hard to remind myself that I will get there.

I actually stopped and looked back at my "to get" skill list. I'm almost done with it. I was surprised by that. However, I've been following it rather faithfully for months now.

Lately however, I've been super sensitive or everyone really is questioning my lack of skills. I have 6.8million skillpoints. I'm trying. I'm not there. Good lord, I'm so not there. I've worked so hard to accept that things will take time. Now it feels like sometimes, people around me forget that fact.

Sigh. Grumpyness.

Did I mention that the boys had all sorts of amazing pewpew last night?

Yeah... I'm going to bed.

 [15:32:10] Trig Vaulter > Sugar Kyle Nice bio - so carebear sweet - oh you have a 50m ISK bounty - so someday more grizzly  [15:32:38 ] Sugar Kyle > /emote raises an eyebrow to Trig  [15:32:40 ] Sugar Kyle > okay :)  [15:32:52 ] Sugar Kyle > maybe one day I will try PvP out When I logged in one of the first things I did was answer a question in Eve Uni Public Help. It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio

And back again

My very slow wormhole adventure continues almost as slowly as I am terminating my island in Animal Crossing.  My class 3 wormhole was not where I wanted to be. I was looking for a class 1 or 2 wormhole. I dropped my probes and with much less confusion scanned another wormhole. I remembered to dscan and collect my probes as I warped to the wormhole. I even remembered to drop a bookmark, wormholes being such good bookmark locations later. My wormhole told me it was a route into low sec. I tilted my head. How circular do our adventures go. Today might be the day to die and that too is okay. That mantra dances in the back of my head these days. Even if someone mocks me, what does that matter? Fattening someone's killboard is their issue not mine. So I jumped through and found myself in Efa in Khanid, tucked on the edge of high sec and null sec. What an interesting little system.  Several connections to high sec. A connection to null sec. This must be quite the traffic system.    I am f

What are all of these buttons for?

My snooty villager, Naomi, wants to move out. I picked her because she is a blue cow with some wild makeup but we have not really bonded like I have with Savannah and Mitzi... oh wait yeah wrong game. So, my clan is almost finished the second step of the Manhunt in Division 2. We just have one more zone to clear and then we can hunt down the secondary target to reveal the next... err wait, waaaaaiittt... Sorry about that. Resetting things. What do I want to do? That has been my problem for a while now. If I play Eve, what do I want to do in Eve? While I did PvP it was never my draw. The old PvE sucks. The new PvE may be okay but do I want to do it? Who am I? What am I? And do I need to be unique and interesting? I think that I may want to look in small wormholes and try a exciting, fragile life. With some of the ships that are available I can, perhaps, have an interesting life where I may or may not fall prey to someone but it does not have to define what
