So since I've been playing again, I've found myself careening back into that spiral whirlpool of "omgomgomgImgettingtooinvolvedjesuswhathaveIdone" after the whole Three Widows event. I work completely for myself around the clock pretty much seven days a week. If I'm not sleeping, I'm working on something and right before the Three Widows event...I had two BIG clients cancel on me.
Which sent me in a panic to find two people to replace them. Immediately. While I was looking for someone to hire me so I can put food in my belly and a roof over my head for another month, Three Widows happened. So when I logged in after three days gone and saw all that I missed. I was so sad that I missed it...when I shouldn't be because I PUT FOOD ON MY TABLE.
I started to play Aet again because I got bored in between designing, exporting large files, editing videos, and talking on the phone. When you work from home, you just need something else to do in between but now I'm feeling like I got too...involved.
Which isn't totally bad because I love where Pilar is going, she was the baby sister and now she's forging her own path but it's getting bad for me. Back in the day I could just play for hours and not have to worry so much about work since I had a regular job. Now, I'm finding myself weighing my options before I just up and disappear because I'm too overwhelmed between Aet and managing my freelancing. Of course, freelancing comes first but with all the work I've put in I at least want to ask about some managing tips and then try them.
Do you use a timer? Only log in on certain days?
Someone out there must get me, what do you do to manage your Aet time?
He told me I was so small...
I told him, "Water me."Affirm Pilar!
