An Odd Sided Peg

What am I?
Am I corruption?

I seem to corrupt all that I touch. It does not seem to offend people but it is a strange trail that I leave in my wake.

Hello, bittervet corp. 
I am Sugar. 
I like newbies.

I wandered back into rookie chat after work today. I've been out of it for two days. I figured that with most of the USA that is not me having today off, it would be a good day to drop in and see how the channel was doing. The population was a bit over two thousand and the text was a lot slower. We're able to have more complete conversations and there are many who are now four or five days old and stretching their wings.

Strange things go full circle. Vadeim is back in my life and now in my alliance. I notice him feeling guilty in alliance chat. He has killed and podded a day old player. Tyler convos said newbie and sends him to my channel. Before I can talk to him he bails from my channel and leaves Tyler's conversation. Now, I like trying to help people but you can over push yourself on them as well. About half of the convos I try to start in rookie chat are rejected. I don't take it personally. I'm sure in most games it'd be creepy as hell for some random weirdo named Sugar to try to talk to you.

For some reason,
I cause pirates in my corp
to think about who they kill.
Sometimes... at least...

"Why don't you start a newbie corp, Sugar?"

Oh... time. Mostly, time. I cannot commit to something like starting a corp at the moment. The CSM eats the time I'd be spending on building a corporation. It'd be fair to no one. In the future? When I know more? When I am better, stronger, smarter, more able, knowledgeable, capable...

A little bit later the newbie popped back up in rookie chat. I was able to answer his questions and deliver my information. Hes fixated on how much he can get out of data/relic sites in low sec compared to high sec. It was not my most sucessful catch and release but I can say that I gave it a go.

It amuses me that my corpmates give me newbies. This is not the first or tenth time it has happened. I should probably move from 'huh, I wonder why they do that' to acceptance. I'll never be the scary blackbeard of Eve. I should have realized that back when I named Rykki's corpmates 'kitten fleet'.
[04:09:11] Brenda Esterkarzova > Low sec is very dangerous, just got nailed there. It is a very big risk but the payoff is huge if you can make it. You have to make the choice in the end and sooner or later you will have to visit it.
So, maybe one day. For now I'll practice. I fed my chatroom a newbie looking to do exploration. They have the basics down. Considering we spent a lot of the evening discussing exploration it seemed like a good fit. Hopefully it works out and they are not scared off.

Maybe one day!

 [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
