Getting Things Done Before I Leave

Published by under Blog on Jun. 01. 2011.

Over the last few weeks, Real Life has come at me full blast. My full time job has sped up in what I am doing and how much of my time I have to get things done. My family has has done the same as the youngest now moves as fast as a Ewok on a Speeder. Needless to say, my life is busy, very busy.  So, because of all of this, I am doing as much as I can before I have to leave.


You see, I have come to realize that once Swtor releases, it comes down to the Game and Real Life. As we all are so excitedly waiting for the game, I am sure you all know what I am talking about. Once the game launches, I will go into game mode. I will get tunnel vision and see nothing but Republic and Empire, Galaxy Maps and little green people that do or do not resemble something I once new. I will become a computer chair accessory and delve into the Universe on my ship. I will envelop myself into a story and my companions story. I will craft, I will fight and probably die, but I will have fun.


So when I say I have things to do before I leave, I do. I have work to get done and try to get ahead of. I have kids to play with and a Wife that I have to get chores and projects done for. I have grass to cut and weed-eat. I have a house to paint and repair. I have windows to get fixed, floors to be cleaned and sinks to replace. I have a real life that I must devote most of my time to so that I can get things done before I leave. Because once my ship launches, I may not be back for awhile.


During this time before we all set off on our journey we are all waiting for, what are you getting done? Are you letting things pile up to interrupt your new life that is closing in on you? are you working feverishly to get caught up and maybe farther on so that you can relax for the game at launch? Will you have time to relax and soak up everything as you come across it or will you be forced to cram as much play-time into as you have other things that will pull you away? So what are you doing?

    I’ve been grinding some family rep out, and working here and there on my guild. Between those activities, work, and writing here, I’m keeping fairly occupied!

    I’m not sure if I’ll ever be able to be as involved in gaming (i.e., living in that world) as before, but I’m plenty excited for this baby to launch.

    Guess mine amounts more to “getting things done while I’m gone.” Trying to finish this degree up and trying to play SWTOR is going to be frustrating to say the least.

    Family Rep is a major reason I am going full speed trying to get things done now. It’s different after playing wow for so long to not playing anything. I find myself with major amounts of time to do things I have somewhat neglected.

    I have to say, I am a very fortunate guy. I have a wife and 3 kids, but once the kids are in bed the wife and I will be playing TOR together probably 4 nights a week. Yeah, it’s awesome. On a side note, this is probably the best fan site I have come across so far. Keep up the good work!
