I have these moments from time to time where I’m adrift in a sea of indecisiveness and indecision – where nothing really seems important. I have no sense of urgency or dedication to anything. I know there are things I’d like to do, but just get sidetracked with other stuff.
I think it’s one of those times where I work so much, I start to burn out and need a sanity break. It’s one of those things when you work in any service-oriented industry – you get sucked in by all the negativity on a daily basis and it just darkens your heart and spirit. I’d rather be creating things and doing stuff that people enjoy – things that bring a smile to one’s face.
I’m one of those people that just does not like to play games online, so no WoW for me – or EverCrack – or EVE – or any of those…..I’ll just play games where I can play through and enjoy the game for what it is. If I want to play a game with others, I’ll play Yugioh, cards, or something to where we’re in the same room and can share the experience.
Then again, when I like to share time with people, it’s rarely in conjunction with a videogame, although there are times, such as with Mario Party, and those are OK too. It’s about spending time WITH someone.
I have also found that I need to cleanly break from my work world on my weekends and vacations, so I can have some ME time. I did that last weekend and found that I dreamed a lot more! Yes…..disconnections from work and technology can be a good thing.
