I had every intention on following through with my schedule of games – but then life happened. A few stressful days, a lack of sleep, and suddenly I didn’t want to play whatever I had schedule. That’s perfectly OK. The schedule is meant as guidance, and if I don’t need that guidance or it needs to change and adjust for xyz reason, it’s not a rule that’s set in stone.
I WILL keep making the weekly schedules for gaming, just so that I have a plan when / if I need it. Then I’m not spending hours trying to decide what to play, I can just look at what I’ve scheduled. If I follow it, great, if I don’t, that’s great too.
Sometimes we need to give ourselves a break. We need to not stress out about really simple things, and we need to realize that we are human. Our schedules are evolving flexible timetables. Learning how to be flexible like that has been really hard for me, especially once we had kids.
What have I been up to? In Wurm Online I’ve currently deeded on the Deliverance server. I’m setting up in an area that has seen many owners in the past, but I’m eager to make it my home. I’ve pre-built portions of the deed on DeedPlanner where I can customize the buildings and land to suit my needs, then have an idea of what supplies I require. So far it’s just a bunch of fields and one house, but I’m pretty excited. The house is a more ‘out there’ plan than my usual ones. I’m try not to make square buildings quite as much. It includes stairs and a bridge, a tower, different wall components. I’m eager to get this one built.
In Wurm Unlimited I’m hostly Priestpalooza next week and so I’ve been preparing for that. Food, drink, extra statuettes, making sure permissions are set properly. All that good stuff.
In Dwarf Fortress I’ve been watching tutorials on picking a place to live. I still haven’t actually PLAYED the game yet. Well, that’s not entirely true, I tried and was overwhelmed so I went back to the tutorials.
As always, happy gaming no matter where you find yourself!
