So, it’s been a while since I’ve hit up the world of SL recently. The occasional five minute logins to get rid of notices don’t count. Come to think of it, I haven’t been in world for an hour minimum since around Dec. 30th.
Looking at a calender, it doesn’t seem to be that long of a time span, but I’ve noticed that for some reason SL and RL times don’t seem to like each other very much. Heck, when I had only been in world for three months (late September) I had already felt like I had spent more than a year there with the people I had met along the way.
Back on track though, part of the absence has been due to a personal vacation that I took out to Montana (Much needed). The other part has been the beginnings of a burn-out feeling. At the current time, SL just doesn’t seem all that appealing to me and I can’t quite pin down why. And while that is happening, I start thinking of the one year payment I made for a subscription to SL and not wanting to waste it. Though one plus of that is, when you come back from not logging in for a while, you find a nice hefty balance of Lindens ripe for the spending.
So, I don’t know how often I’ll be in, but I really do hope that the enjoyment of SL comes back and soon.
In the meantime, I might give some other online multis a shot. I never really played them much until SL, but EVE Online has long been on my list to play and now some pals of mine are trying to convince me to give World of Warcraft a shot, but I’m kinda iffy on that. Then again there’s always the free text-based Iron Realms games, but I must find a way to avoid getting lost in that before diving back into it.
