If you don’t have it your on the other side.
It’s 7am I’m on a train heading to the city early to catch a ferry to get to a course for work – It’s cold and I need a coffee.
I’m relieved to be missing out on the extended maitenance on my servers. It’s during work hours and sleep hours. However I got home last night my head full of new things I learned, and it being Tuesday night wow was down earlier because of the maintenance on most of the realms I have toons on accept my baby tanks realm – I got excited – yes! I could play wow for a couple of hours – I logged in – on my other screen I read emails – read my rss reader and she stood there her Tauren tail flicking in impatience. “come on” she said “so close to 38- I’ve got those new legs waiting for me in my bag – they’re sweet 20 strength- I wanna go tank some stuff”
I logged off – leaving her standing in disbelief. I could have squeezed some runs in with her- but I felt blizzard had put a forced break on me with my mains server being down – that I ought to use this opportunity to walk away – and I did. I did other stuff – didn’t even write a blog post.
There was a recent study ( no linkage cause I’m on my iPhone) that showed that gaming did the same stuff to the brain as a drug hit – and another recent discussion on parents having difficulty taking game consoles and pc’s off their children.
I’ve never burned out from wow – always found something to keep me engaged – or been able to walk away when I needed to – maybe I’ve not overdosed – yet- but I’m writing this in the freezing cold instead of reading 1 of 2 books in my bag, or finish writing my story in my notebook I want to submitt for an anthology that published a story of mine last year – I’m getting a wow fix right now – thinking about it – I probably should stop for now – finish the story on the ferry maybe.
Hope the servers are up by our raid time tonight –
