Another Day

I had a lot to say today.

And then a lot of things happened.

At first I was happy.

But then the day went on.

I started to wonder if I will ever understand people.

Or maybe it is me?

And finally, I decided to shelve it for another day.

Have a good evening, Everyone.

  3. " started to wonder if I will ever understand people." Right there is your mistake - there is no need to understand people. Only to accept that they exist :)

  4. In some way it's always "you" because the main issue is ones perception and attitude.
    Everyone is surrounded with negativity and facing problems or even misery. As well everyone is surrounded with positive things and chances to improve or sources of enjoyment. You just need to hold on to what's positive for you and have an attitude and perception that's sunny and optimistic.
    I really like your blog, I just hope you manage to take things a bit more light-hearted.

  5. At the end of day, it's just a game.

    Don't let it become your life.

    People can live without EVE. Can live if you don't say or think or do what they expect you to say or think or do.

    Because it's just a game.

    Take care of yourself, Sugar.

    1. That's why I regret honesty sometimes in this medium. Instead of acknowledging the impact one person can have on another the advice is always its just a game.

      I like to know the why and I'm not ashamed that a person can effect me. I know it means I'm not meant to play Eve but at the end if the day I want to know why people do what they do to other people.

      It's who I am. To stupid to just dismiss the world as wrong and to dumb to not want to understand why people treat others as they do and do what they do.

    2. Onions,

      Of all people to pull "it's just a game" out of their pocket, I must say that you doing so soars about as high on the hypocrisy scale as I’ve seen for quite some time. You’ve nursed an awe inspiring bitter for so long it leaves this Eve player near speechless meaning, unless it’s all been a mere trolling act, you are in no position to uncork “it’s just a game” on anyone. So Onions, why don’t you try taking your own “It’s just a game” (a game you don’t even play anymore) advice and shut the fuck up.

    3. Apparently I have a talent to say things in a way that people understand the opposite of what I intended to mean.

Will the real player please stand up?

I installed Eve on my Surface the other day. I then remembered why my last laptop, when I was playing Eve, was an Alienware gaming laptop. My Surface, wonderful creature that it is, runs Eve at such a tiny magnification that I squint to see it. I could change my settings and adjust for this. Instead, I'll stick to my desktop and try to remember to log in and see the latest round of changes.

Yet, here I am writing.

Deep in the muzzy field of my brain that has been working almost daily for the last six weeks, random thoughts bubble up. I may not log in and spend my time focusing on Eve as a world, but it hasn't slipped from me. I've picked up an amazing group of friends that I talk to daily and many of them still play enough that I skim the social edges. At times I'm angry that the same social problems exist. At others, I'm fascinating by the process.

Today is a fascinating day because I've been answering e-mails. I still get e-mails occasionally from people who …

Memoirs - Part One: Virtual Worlds

Virtual Realities: Memoirs of an internet spaceship politician by Sugar Kyle CSM9, CSMX
This is where it really started. The day I lost my mind.

I never told anyone how long I had been debating my run for the ninth CSM. The thought started to circle in the back of my thoughts in November. I was back home after a sucessful Eve Vegas. I had met a few people. My notes from the presentations and round tables had gone over very well. I felt useful, comfortable, and excited that I was a member of the community. I belonged and I cared about this thing that I belonged to. That thing was the community of Eve Online.
Eve Vegas of 2013 was when I found out that a conversation I had been fortunate enough to have with CCP Masterplan at Fanfest of that same year, had sparked enough interest to gain developer attention. At Eve Vegas I learned that they would be working on ideas based off of the premise that I had presented. Only days later, a developer posted to the Offical Eve Online forums about i…

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…
