First off, a big thank you to everyone who commented on my story that ENN ran. As always ANY criticism is more appreciated than you may know.
I'll be submitting more and making strides to get published on EON and volunteering for CCP. The reason for this ramping-up of goals is due in part to my RL convos with Roc and CK. Roc told me the reason he teamed with Sam to make Capsuleer was for the sole reason that they wanted it for themselves. Necessity is the mother of invention. This made me ask myself if there was anything I wanted from CCP that I could theoretically make myself. Scientific, sociological, and historical articles came to mind.
Afterwards, CK suggested going to EON and CCP, as any article they publish is canon, vetted and reaches a wide audience. He's had experience with both and thought I had the chops, which was a huge complement, and I owe it to everyone to make good on it. It's a challenge, but one I feel I have the ability to succeed at.
Add on to that my podcast plans, and I think I may end up in the same trap CK finds himself in now. When will I actually play the game? I guess I'll have to cross that bridge when I come to it.
Roc's home sick with a stomach flu thing. Everyone please wish him a speedy recovery. Also, I don't want to name names but I know of quite a few players who are having serious RL issues with employment. If you have the ability, buying an in-game friend a GTC to get them through a tough time is a wonderful gesture. We need to try and support ourselves as a community during these current economic woes. Even well-wishes goes a long way.
It's been a year since I started this security job and I've worked Monday to Friday (and even some weekends) for that entire time. I think it's starting to wear me down. Have you ever decided not to take a vacation for the sole reason that you didn't want a temp fucking everything up and then having to fix it all when you get back?
This weekend is going to involve some house work and some major grocery shopping (wow... I have mustard?), but mostly I want to do some reading (comics, every EVE chronicle, novels) and writing (on-going projects). I may not even touch a video game at all. Also need to get on the EVE-O forums and finish uploading LSoP, and put up my first BattleClinic loadouts. I hope I can get the wife's EVE account running and let her run through the tutorial while I get foods. I intend to wire her 50mill to get started. Too much, not enough or just right?
