30 Apr

Life has been changing quite fast this past month.

I thought that I would have more time to game, now that I’m more or less single again. That turns out to be false.

I’m in a state where I really need to start focusing my skills and interests into a profession(s). Musically, I’ve been playing out more. I am also teaching more, and probably will need to teach more to supplement my income. Recently, I began leaving early for work to beat the traffic, and I am spending the extra half-hour each morning exploring game development.

All of this means that by the time I am done with my 6:30am-8:30pm schedule, I am really, really exhausted. I may have three–maybe four–nights a week when I’m home by 5pm, and at this point, I want to spend those night playing whatever game I feel like playing. Sometimes I just want to read something, or passively take in a TV show or a movie. I can’t even commit to a casual game like Hearthstone, where effort is needed to gain cards and more mental effort to experiment with deck-building. My MMO excursions have slowed down dramatically these past couple months. I feel bad being part of guilds, and not even remembering people’s names because I only see them once or twice a week, if even that. Last night, I came home at 7:30pm and went straight to bed without dinner. This morning, I am deliberately skipping my game dev time to write this post.

I want to be more involved with all of you wonderful people I’ve met in the online space over the past year, but I may be coming up against a hard wall here. I love the twitter gaming community. I love my WildStar and FFXIV peeps. The blogging community here is awesome. Maybe it won’t be so bad and I can start doing more as I adjust to my new lifestyle. We will see.

For now, I will cheer you guys on from my twitter feeds between lunch breaks and commutes.

Time to get to work!
