Kicking the MMO Habit
The MMO Monkey on my back had been pwned.
Keep in mind that these games are designed to be addictive. Fortunately I didn't inherit the addiction gene, as by all rights I should be an alcoholic smoker. But these games do appeal to several components of my mental makeup. My work psych profile is: Strategic, Analytical, Input, Learner and Responsibility. The same things that make me good at my job cause me to enjoy a lot of aspects of MMOs.
But now it doesn't seem so appealing, because they eat up so much time. What am I doing with all of this extra time? Not a lot yet. I finished Dzur over the weekend, it looks like I'll get to the gym four times this week, I'm hoping to spend an evening painting minis with a friend, I went to a pub for my friend Weasel's 40th (hence the extra gym session... penance) and I've done a little work on some of my campaigns.
Yeah, still not so much with the housework.
