I’m home. I’ve met with my therapist once, since I’ve returned, and am probably going to meet with her again tomorrow. The strangest part, is that I’m meeting her because I’m doing surprisingly well under the circumstances. In my effort to do even better, and stay focused on priorities, I welcome her assistance. My focus has been less than ideal of late, but I’m not allowing it to become an issue. Instead, my strategy right now is to allow myself to chase The Shiny for a while. So I’ve been playing Warcraft quite a bit, since the new expansion was released. I won’t decide how I feel about it until I reach level 110 on at least 2 toons. So far, it’s held my attention well, and the scenery is nicer than Draenor.
It’s also nice to get back to Dalaran. I really loved The Lich King expansion. It seems like so long ago that I griped about having to do a daily dungeon run. Little did I know then that a farm, a garrison, and a shipyard were about to make that minor chore look reasonable. I don’t mind doing these things in the game at all. I just regret that I rarely find time to do as much as I’d like. Role playing with my toons in WoW is so much more straightforward and logical than real life. I feel like I have a good handle on things in the game, and that’s a nice feeling. Talking is optional, socializing can be done on my own terms, and I rarely suffer from Foot-in-Mouth Disease when gaming.
I’m also playing No Man’s Sky on Playstation 4. I rarely pre-order console games, but this one caught my attention long before it was released. I’ll review my thoughts on it at another time. I’ve been sleeping more than is normal for me. I must need it, but I’m not enjoying getting up later. It’s shifting my entire schedule a few hours forward, leaving me feeling out of sync. I know it’ll self correct in a few days, but in the meantime, it’s taking a toll. I’m off to read.
