Fight the Machine, or "How Work Affects Play"

The changes I've seen in my play style are the following:
  • I don't play during the week, only on the weekends.
  • I don't do dailies anymore.  I make money through cross-faction pet sales listed in the few spare minutes I have before and after work.
  • I'm less concerned with gear than I am with getting my characters to max level for Cata.
  • I'm more interested in how my professions can net me a profit than I've ever been before.
  • I'm much more intense about making and stockpiling gold, because having enough gold will make time management easier later.
  • I'm much more focused on the major goals I still hold -- such as making sure certain characters are 85 by Valentines for a shot at the rocket, or sacrificing part of my days during Brewfest for Plum to try for her pretty little ram.
I told my brother-in-law-in-law that I want to try for the Pink Rocket on multiple characters.  He said "I was going to tell you how insane you are, but then I remembered 'Oh right, she has the phoenix.'"

  1. I've been running more into the Real Life wall blocking my playtime lately. I want to finish Brewfest on Delgada, and the Argent Tournament, and the Skyguard, and and and...but instead of logging in every night as I was used to, I find I am falling asleep on the couch, attending school functions, and doing pretty much everything but logging in to WoW. I even fiddled with Hello Kitty Online last night, because I knew that I didn't have the time to devote to what I wanted to do in WoW last night.

    Sad :(
