I Cheated on Eve

I had a little break from Eve. There is a good chance no one noticed. At times my blog is written a week or so in advance. This time I hoarded posts that were not time relevant. The side effect was that things I wrote a week or two ago obtained a random relevance to current actions in the game. I was rather impressed with my ability to predict the future through musings.

My break was for my friends visit. I decided that while she was here, I'd not log in. I did break that a bit by updating Sugar's skill queue. I also scribbled out a blog post about a topic that has been bothering me a bit while she was in the shower at one point. In general, I refrained from posting although I did read a lot of stuff. My phone, after all, is but an extension of myself.

I played the Last of Us (not worth brand new price IMO) and finally purchased Red Dead Redemption.

I tried very hard not to Eve. I figured that a break would be good for me. I do play the game daily after all. Maybe some of my recent moodiness would finally shake off. I missed Eve. It was the itch of an addict. I sat at my desk to do other things and made myself not log in. It was pleasant to remind myself that I am in control of my addiction (for the most part).

Eve has been making me sad of late. I realized that a lot of my in game unhappiness is a reflection of my IRL job happiness. It just eats away at me. Hopefully, one of my job searches will become productive. I also realize a lot of the 'blog sphere drama' of late had depressed me as a writer. I'm trying to remind myself to ignore some things and just keep slogging along for whatever reason I do so.

I did also decide that I need to spend a bit more time playing and a bit less time hovering over market figures. I believe it will help my pensive mood. When I spend to much time thinking and talking to myself I get dull.

I've been a good girl and updating my 'other' stuff blog Downtime Hours with absolute nonsense such as whatever I happen to be reading and playing that isn't Eve. I also wrote a review of the Last of Us and put it on Game Skinny. I'm sure I didn't do it right. I'm not sure I care. I've always been more focused on doing things honestly. We played it for the last four days and has a lot of positives and a lot of negatives. On a positive note, I think I figured out the problem that has caused me to spend the last month not getting anywhere on my latest fan fiction.

That's it. Now I'm doing damage control on TCS from my stay away. I'm rather pleased with the outcome so far.


  1. Breaks are good - they give you perspective.

    My current little hi-sec experiment had turned into an de-facto break as well, and made me rediscover books.

Sugar’s Non-Technical Guide to Making Boosters

Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.  There have been changes to how things are built in Eve. This was the old POS code before the introduction of new structures in 2016.   This is just a walk through on my wobbling path of booster production.  It took me half a dozen different documents to figure out what I needed to do to make these mythical things.  It is what I do.  It may not be perfect but it works.

This is pirate focused industry.
This guide brought to you by Lain asking me to write it after I tried to explain it in chat.

Why make boosters? Because drugs are good.  Really they are performance enhancers and performance enhancers can give someone that extra edge in PvP.  It was also because my boys used them and when they ran low they often ran out, I could be their supplier.  They would no longer hoard their drugs due to the length of time it takes to get fresh product.. The thought of being a drug kingpin was also very appealing. …

CSM: Running for Office: Week Six

Nine days untill  the polls open.

It is amazing how much effort can go into crafting thirteen hundred characters. When I first looked at my CSM application I thought that it would be easy to write the official words. Of course it was not. The limit was the largest hurdle. I had so much to say and so few words to say it in. But, I eventually worked through it and submitted everything last Sunday evening. I sent off my passport at the same time and now it is just a short, but long wait.

Tomorrow is the final day of application submissions. Then, on the 3rd, we should find out who actually submitted their applications and passports and passed their background checks. The polls open the following Tuesday. I’ve checked my submission a few times. If I try to fill out the form with Sugar again it tells me that she has already submitted one. I sent my e-mail to the correct place. How I wish for a confirmation email to stare at. For now, i just fret. When I started the run I was worried about …

Busy, busy, busy

I find that it is still easy to write about Eve. However, I've not been playing Eve. I spent most of the last few weeks finishing up my crochet project. It was a birthday present for my best friend. Since someone expressed interest in it, here it is.

It is displayed on a king size bed. I made it as a birthday present for my best friend. We've had twenty years of friendship. I met her online when I was a teenager. Our birthdays are two weeks apart so I celebrated mine by making her something. I'm not one to celebrate birthdays but now and then I try to pull myself to a social norm and do something special for the people I love.

I spent a long time fighting to be myself. I finally discovered a balance in this last handful of years. It is still a struggle but for some reason, in my late thirties, understanding is moving briskly along. With that understanding comes comfort. I don't have to fight about and for things like I used to. I don't have to make anyone accept me…
