Game Life Balance

There are times when my writings take on quite a serious tone. To an extent, that seriousness is real. I like to engage in aspects of Eve Online that are not limited to the realm of video game. Hence my musings on social relationships and the actions of people.
My personal action is to go on Vacation this weekend. I’m rather excited about it. It comes with some interesting side effects related to Eve. Normally when I travel I take my laptop with me. Because this is a three day adventure put together for us by my husband, we are both going to leave our laptops (but take phones and tablets for we are but only so brave) for the duration of the trip.
Eve is a game that one can pick up and put down at ease. My biggest task is making sure my skill queues extend well into next week. Sugar will work on her laser skills. Chella will follow Vand’s path of a perfect Guardian pilot. Life is good.
But… I have an in game life that is affected. I run my market and after three sold days of neglect it will be a bit tattered in some areas. Because I work on Monday, it will not be fully patched until mid week I expect. This is not life ending or world changing but it is a fact. I need to make sure my POS is also is fueled and happy. I find the duel planning amusing. I must pack my bag and fuel my POS and write my corp a note that I will be away in case anyone was planning to ask me to transport anything and make sure there is enough dog food…
This is my first trip this summer. In another two months I will be off to Eve Vegas so this last minute thing is pretty exciting.
My blog will continue to post random things all weekend. It's well trained it seems.
And then, I'll post some pictures of Niagara. We're staying on the Canada side.

  1. Have an awesome trip. The Maid of the Mist is an interesting boat ride if you've got the time.

  2. Seriously considering Eve Vegas. It's only a few hour drive from me in Arizona, and I love Vegas. I've only been gaming with Eve for 6 months so I'm not going to know anybody, but I still think I'd have a good time.

    Have a great trip! Stay away from the barrel rides (it's a scam: they promise a round-trip excursion).

    (Love the blog, btw. Will you be my Obi-wan/Yoda?)

    1. We're doing the boat to the falls, behind the falls, and the butterfly garden.

      I have no idea I'd that's a joke, your seeking a mentor, you plan to go to the dark side so long for a master to kill in the future, or a comment on My looks and inabilities with language.

      ;P
