You ever notice how weird time is? The amount of time in a day is the same… every day. But some days time seems to drag and other days it flies by.
I definitely find this crazy “fast flying” time to be the case when I take vacation days. Especially those vacation days where you don't actually leave the house.
I had some time off over this last week, and I had all these plans of things to do during that time.
All these things I wanted to tackle could be boiled down to 3 main categories:
- Spend time with Sideshow
- Play games
- Write blog posts and maybe get a bit ahead of myself!
…I can tell you 2 outta 3 ain't bad.
Of course I got to spend time with Sideshow. Besides it being our birthday, we like to … well, play games together.
And I've been trying to mix it up a bit.
Yes, I know. My Facebook gaming has gone beyond research at this point.
I was not very good at disciplining myself to writing time. Not a huge thing, but man, is it easy to lose track of time when you get into a gaming groove.
For example, I picked up Harvest Moon: Animal Parade over the weekend for the Wii. I love Harvest Moon and have played about 3 other of its titles on the Gamecube. Well, that game can really suck you in as you get into your farming and ranching routine; picking mushrooms, herbs, and berries; talking to the townsfolk; wooing a townie; and working on the game objectives to save the town and restore nature's balance.
I love it.
Then we also picked up Wii Fit Plus. Sideshow had already purchased Wii Fit and the board several months ago (after my nagging about wanting it). He'd been using Fit, but I still had yet to step onto that board. We picked up Plus because it has some neat and helpful additions to it.
Well, I finally got on there and am making it a goal to get on it daily, even if it's only 15-20 minutes a day.
So here I am, being pulled towards newly purchased games that demand my love and affection. (Gawd how I love that new game smell!) But all my other games cannot be out done.
See, I had this plan to go wild with completing dailies, maybe finally pug it up with Syrana, work on my baby priest, and tackle some more Loremaster.
I spent, at the most, a couple hours on WoW during my extended weekend….so… yeah.
Then I remember… oohh, I need to putz around with Aion…
I planned on it…
I only have a couple more days before my subscription runs out…
I still haven't logged in. I haven't logged in for a couple months now. I talked about re-evaluating my subscription, but I haven't even logged in to do it. I think that's more telling than anything else right now, don't you think?
