Weighing Anchor

Really, unless one is a cat one should not climb into a small, poorly fitted box and get trapped there.

"I really want to...," I kept saying. Only, I was sitting in Jita the entire time. I had wandered there to fit a ship back in October or so and I had never left. One thing after another caught my attention and I never fit ships and moved them.

But, today as I was saying yet again that I'd really like to do .... I realized that I had trapped myself. I had set myself up to fail without meaning to.

When did I ever go to Jita to get fit? When did I ever carefully research ships for the optimal fit for an adventure? When  did I ever care? By trying, something in itself not bad, I had discovered that it is not a viable path for me. Even on my own terms I am not into theory crafting and working out fits.

I'll stick to what has worked. I will find people who are good at it and get help. There is a part of me that feels a bit guilty about this. I really feel that I should be more invested in it. But, I'm not. I understand. I can 'read' a fit. But, I can pore over market orders for hours and my eyes glaze in minutes over fitting.

I'm out of Jita now. I'll see what that brings to me. I expect that I'm going to need a bunch of stuff to make things work. Also, I have found, mayhaps some stuff to do.

I also got to go visit my potential new puppy, yesterday. He pushed  all ideas of Eve out of my head for the weekend. I'm glad we're still on the holiday cooldown with the CSM.

  2. I can't sit down with an empty fit window and come up with anything credible. Simply not my forte. I plagiarise diligently to get a start, and then adjust for budget and sometimes skills, often with disastrous results.

    The few (very few) fits I could claim as my own have evolved over literally years, adjusting for patches and my individual mode of operation. And even those started by looking at what others had done.

    Puppy is adorable. You are correct to be distracted. ;)

  3. Dat puppy! So *jelly*!

    I'm glad to hear someone else can't get into fitting. Me either. Thankfully with my focus on exploration, it is greatly simplified.

Maybe one day!

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
