Holding Pattern

My holding pattern continues but I've been doing a lot of thinking inside of it. It is not productive thought. It is more meandering, aimless, idle thought. It does not tend to produce large, coherent thoughts. It is good however to sit back and reflect in a manner that is not hindsight.

I'm fascinated with how passionately we tend to play the game. I include myself in this wholeheartedly. That passion is often the great binding agent. It is also the catalyst that starts battles. It makes us stand on one facet of the game while someone else picks another. Individuals are just not neat and organized into categories, no matter how hard we try.

At the moment I'm collapsing TCS. Not as a permanent thing but because moving and setting it back up is just to much work. I'm mothballing it for now. Maybe I'll take the alts and try station trading or something. I just look at the task list of things I have to do in Eve and compare it to the things I want to do in Eve and compare that to the non-Eve things I'd like to spend time on and decided to make some changes.

Right now, moving TCS back and forth is just unpleasant. Plus, stocking had become a strain on my time. So, I'm going to take a few months off. It means swallowing some guilt but that is better than staggering, half assed through the market and disappointing everyone including myself.

The good news is that I have productive, useful things to do with my time. Some of those I plan to get to after I post this.

I have some ideas as to what I will do with the rest of my play time. No worries on that.

  1. Huh... what is TCS and what does mean that you mothball it? (not meant to be jerking, I'm just curious)

    1. TCS is The Cougar Store and it is my market.

  2. Maybe the moving is the problem. You seemed to genuinely enjoy building a market.

    1. I do and moving it is not a lot of fun. Its a lot of work to delist, move, and relist everything. Each spot is different when it comes to needs and traffic. I love the market stuff but it is a lot of work and looking at rebuilding it for the second time in six months is just to much for me right now.

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
