A Bit of a Stumble

I get to write about a popular topic of the day. What happens when the game goes down?

I was fortunate. While today is my day off, my mother had already claimed the majority of my time.  I didn't get back home until 1600 my time and the server was still down. So, I talked to people on Tweetfleet slack and have spent some time writing things up and playing Minecraft.

A few years ago I'd have been all fretful with my game addiction. I've reached the point that I can put Eve down fairly easily. I also had nothing planned which helped. Then, add on the skill queue changes and there is little need for me to log in today other than simple pleasure of logging in and chatting.

It does remind me that I need to get back to resettling myself. I've somewhat learned not to play and I have to teach myself how to do so again. I've spent a long time docked up because it was safe from making mistakes that would get me ridiculed. Now, off on my own to wander around again it doesn't matter what mistakes I make. I wish it hadn't mattered before but unfortunately, it did. That is a side effect of doing things with others. It is no longer my singular perceptions that matters.

It leaves a lot to think about. But those are thoughts that move slowly in the back of my mind. I'm more occupied with work. Rob posted, "Enjoy your day off the CSM." I chuckled. I rolled over this morning around 0730 as I am wont to do and checked my phone. I immediately started bad typing into a discussion and then fell back asleep. The CSM is on several different mediums and I've been gathering thoughts and opinions and writing my opinions and reading ideas and reactions. If anything, I'd think there would be less to do if I did more in client. As is, I can easily not log in and still fill my day directly with Eve.

But now, the servers have come back up. I'm going to finish my tomato and get to answering my in game mail now that I can access it.

  1. Seriously, people laughing at you to the extent that you just wanted to stay docked?!

    ...

    Some people need to calm way down. Glad you're finding your feet again.

    1. Some of the larger lowsec entities take themselves several magnitudes to serious (in my not so humble opinion) :)

    2. I can remember a time when an alliance leader sent out mails saying that if we didn't go on the deployment that he would send gank squads back home to blow up all the ratting carriers he could find... and then did... Was posting them in alliance channel for days. Needless to say, they weren't there very much longer...

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
