[Life] Sudden Drop
Well, this has been a fun night.

A couple of castmates dropped in CFUD, and that got me thinking about how I haven't played in months and seem to have no motivation to start again. And I'm still feeling guilty about flaking out on a double-app two rounds ago. So now I probably need to be talked out of dropping all my characters. (Or maybe the issue is that I need to be talked into it.) It also reminds me of how I'd been wanting to get back into GateMUSH lately. But if I can't manage any activity in one game, what makes me think I have any right to take up space in a second?

It's freezing in this damn apartment -- well, okay, not freezing. Work was freezing. This is just cold. So I opened up the heater fan I bought at work just before Christmas. Total waste of money. It only heated me up a little bit, and then it suddenly just shut itself off and wouldn't turn back on. Probably one of the stupid safety features glitching. And since I bought it so long ago, I've already thrown away the receipt, so I have to hope work will let me return it without. Otherwise I'm out $28. ETA: Wait! False alarm. I just found the receipt stashed in my desk drawer. So I've got that going for me, at least.

I'm feeling stalled on all my characters in Warcraft too. I don't want to do anything with Forrester until he gets some rest state built up again, and my other characters all feel weak and boring. And I'm hesitating to jump in with Guparah, the level 70 hunter Kipp gave me, just because he's so far ahead of anything else I've played, and it seems like there's so much to learn before I can be effective with him. So I've logged in and out a few times tonight.

But there seems to be a good side to this bad mood. "Lack of motivation to do anything" apparently turned itself into "lack of motivation to do anything except homework". I finished off a handout that's not due until next Wednesday. (I do need to take it in to the accounting lab before then, though. I'm not certain about several answers I put down, and I want to do as good a job as I can.)

Some more info about my class load this semester. I'm only taking one class this time around. The two next required courses for the accounting major? The only class periods I could attend for them (thanks to work) were scheduled for the exact same time. Gee, thanks. So I just took Principles of Accounting II. Considering I'm still getting into the swing of classes, I think this will work out well. It's a direct continuation of Principles I, which I took last semester, so happily we're using the same textbook and I only need to pick up a little supplemental book. It's a regular classroom-type class, but the whole self-paced thing didn't work out for me so well.

Anyway, that's what's up with me tonight. Hopefully tomorrow will be better. Well, really, it's bound to be, considering it leads into the weekend. Yay weekends.

Re: Roleplay

Perhaps you need to rethink your strategies? I've noticed lately that the people who seem to have trouble finding inspiration are mostly the ones who don't have many IC connections to other characters or don't spend a lot of time on the game (the two are not mutually exclusive, mind you).

If you want to come back, there's no reason you can't. And if you want a little help finding scenes and stuff, you can always ask me! I'm pretty good at arranging that sort of thing. A lot of people seem to scoff at the idea of scheduling scenes a week or so in advance, but frankly I've found that just 'being available for a scene' never seems to make RP happen. A little commitment seems to do a whole lot!

On the other hand, you're busy with other stuff too, so there's no need to push yourself either way. I've stalled a bit on WoW too, haha, mostly because I've been so busy with RL stuff and RP (a scene every weeknight, what the heck).

I'm having lack of motivation on my 2 WoW chars too. I am finally a level 37 on Rienne, my Warlock..and I just started Sunara and she's a 8. It's sad how fast I lost interest. Bleh to winter months.

The nice thing about Gate is that you can RP and storytell at your own pace. Plus you'll get to meet Tepet Tilis Tirana. (icon related)
