It officially took me one month to fiddle with my resolutions and find appropriate excuses for my breakdowns. I’m not going to say that I completely broke my resolutions, because I left ample loopholes and multiple parts to allow for occasions such as these. Plus, I can justify as necessary, citing … reasons.
I said I wouldn’t buy a new game until I’d gone through what’s already in my library. I assumed this resolution would be lost to Steam, but while Steam has tried to tempt me, I have managed to resist (read: I already bought most of the games on my wish list last year). I’m pretty sure I won’t survive the summer sale, though. Technically speaking, I didn’t even have to mess with my resolution since Tera is going to be free, but having recently spent some time with a few free to play MMOs, other than Guild Wars, I’ve grown wary and weary of the F2P concept and all the nickel and diming involved. Tera offered a founders pack for a mere $20 … why not skip the annoyance of the constant demands for cash and try out a membership for a couple of months? Can always go free later…
So after 48 hours of downloading and patching and freeing up space on my poor PC, I was finally able to get in and create a few characters, but I didn’t play much since I’d returned to my Guild Wars 2 world completion obsession temporarily. This all happened on Sunday, when I was supposed to be reading, thereby messing up my other resolution. This I blame on my Saturday being messed up with a trip to see family and friends. I was already out of sorts, so clearly I couldn’t simply focus on reading more than a hundred pages or so.
