2013 is Here
I was doing so good posting on the blog. Then all of a sudden it’s like the will and ability to post just wasn’t there anymore.
It’s been busy as every holiday is. So many weekends in a row being gone, and my free time for producing anything tangible during the week is limited. I have just enough time to start most things, but not enough time to finish them. Right now I’m writing this at 9:00 PM while I’m still at work training one of our part-timers. Which hopefully means I’ll be filling in for missing part-timers less often in the long run.
Hard to imagine with the utter lack of my existence online lately, but I really think I need to unplug. It’s one of the things I love about camping. There’s no radio, internet, TV or distractions. And you just free your mind to think about things in a more deep and meaningful way. So much content out there is trying to evoke some sort of desired emotional response, whether its outrage, desire, or excitement. Everyonce in a while I need some utter solitude where there are no outside messages trying to influence my decision making and just let my mind unravel things as it will.
I’ve been playing some Tekkit on Bieb’s server. I got my resource collection up and running to a point now I can just login and build stuff. I’ll post some screenshots of my project once it starts to take shape a bit. It’s something you should recognize.
I have a hard time really committing myself to Minecraft. Everything I’ve ever built has been lost for one reason or another. Server crashes, world corruptions. It’s just a matter of time before its all gone in a digital POOF. I’ve had a lot of fun watching the Yogscast Tekkit series though. And it’s hard to resist playing for myself. There’s that outside influence I was talking about earlier.
I also am anxious to get back into Guild Wars 2. I mean REALLY anxious. There is just so many damn things to do! It’s a little bit daunting considering I want to do it ALL. But I need to just take my time and realize I have years and years ahead of me yet to experience all that content. It doesn’t help much that Andrea doesn’t play so I’m playing solo all the time. I really would like to find a nice guild… but again, I don’t really have the time to commit to something like that.
So this was basically another chapter in “How Matt Became a Grumpy Old Man”.
