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.

CSMX - Post #20

Summer is here and CCP is very much out of the office. Sion made a good point in wondering why everyone leaves Iceland when it has its best weather. What it means is that all is mostly quiet on the dev blog front. There are some things happening but the dev blogs and news announcements have not yet happened. The skill points were delivered on Tuesday so yay for unallocated skill points.

Over in CSM chat, there has been a lot of back and forth about sov and measuring the impact and success of things so far. I can say that CCP and the CSM are watching it. The pros and cons are coming in pretty hot and heavy. Some are being looked at now. Some have to see how things are going and if and how the direction needs to be tweaked.

In my corner, I'm starting to gather things together. The summit is in seven or so weeks. In between then and now I need to gather up my question list and write down a few topics of discussion. I'm starting now because I have personal vacation at the end of A…

The Charm of the Familar

With a few picked up a shifts at work due to the holidays. I pondered logging in but I didn't have the energy to do so. Being able to say no to logging in is pleasant. Just as my youngest puppy interrupts me every fifteen minutes to pee, going to sleep instead of staying up is also pleasant. I had a lot of short slept nights when I was active in a corporation.

My next plan has been to learn how to scan again. The new map is in and I need to refresh my scanning skills. My hold is full of probes. My ship appears to be reasonably set up. I remembered how to hit my F key to cloak. In fact, I hit it a bit to fast. I need to get the ebb and flow of the tic back down.

I am also rusty in my paranoia. I idly switch to another window to research breadbowls and the soup I want to make later. Then I remember I am sitting, decloaked, off of a gate somewhere. Whoops. I did figure out a breadbowl recipe and soup as well.

The question was where do I relearn to scan? I need somewhere off the beate…

The lack of perfection

I had the pleasure of having Keskora Yaari. We met a bit after I started the CSM and hit it off. As friendships often do it developed into being about the people and not the medium that we met each other in. My new house has a guest room (my previous one was taken over by my mother who moved in and never moved out) and it was fun to have someone in that I could babble about a large part of my last six months of house renovations.

I tried to pamper and spoil her. Those are always the most fun things to do when a friend comes over. I did make sure she was stuffed full of local interesting things. It is only fair, after all. My abilities as a host have improved and I was pleased with myself.

One of our interesting links, outside of Eve, is dogs. We are both dog people. Over my years blogging I have discussed and shared time my creatures. From the passing of Nyx to the acquisition of Intuition. He is doing great by the way. He is two and a half now!


We discussed Eve some but it wasn't…
