You know what they say about the plans of men and mice.... And so it was for me, with my plans for August being derailed almost to the point where I didn't get any of the stuff I was planning done. It started simple enough, like all my derailings usually happen, by getting more interested into another game, namely in this case Dark Souls. It was one of those games that makes you forget about all other games and want to play just that one. I just stopped playing because I got to a part I wasn't figuring out how to get past and got annoyed enough to get some time off it. Then a few days later after that my CPU started overheating when I played pretty much any game. I was able to fix it but it did end up leading to other hardware problems which I didn't fix yet. But at least I can play games now without my computer getting so hot I could fry eggs on it. :p
There were also a few other things here and there that has left me with a scattered brain but those are the more "note-worthy" ones. So my original intention was to make this a monthly thing, where I'd set some goals to accomplish in Everquest 2 and by the beginning of the next month see what I actually got done and else I intended to do for the new month. But with my current state of mind I really don't feel like playing Everquest 2. In fact, I don't feel like playing anything in particular right now. If I do play anything this month I might just putter around in different games. So for the time being this little experiment ends here. I might pick it up again at a another date when I feel more involved with Everquest 2 (or even another MMO).
With all that rambling aside, what did I actually accomplish in the game? More than I actually thought!
