Well. I re-subscribed to Eve, on two accounts! Being out of the loop for two expansions really does leave me with a lot to learn. But life is better, if fundamentally different from nine months ago when I started winding down my time in Eve. Luckily I have landed back pretty much where I was. Both my old corps still have me on the roster, so I can take some time to figure out next steps.
This will be a slow process for a variety of reasons.
First is life. If you look back a few posts, you’ll see that last summer and fall were pretty rough due to a death in the family and the end of the carefree life of being a student. I am fully employed, no longer a student. The family is recovering as best families can. I am now an expecting father, as exciting as that is! So much to do to prepare for the Grimmlet. I am branching back out into tactile hobbies since I have space and money.
Second is Eve. A lot has changed. Not in big ways, but in so many little ways that it is taking time to both get my affairs back in order and piece together what I want to next. My industrial character in fairly secure. My combat pilot is still in FW land. That is a trickier needle to thread. I don’t have the time I used to for roams and the peekaboo nature of fleets, so I need to think about both what to do with the character, and what to do with all the stuff I have all over Black Rise.
Third is other games. While I stepped away from Eve, I picked up a variety of other games. Modded Minecraft, Dwarf Fortress, World of Tanks, Shadowrun Returns, XCOM, and a host of others. I think there may be a series of posts coming from that time spent with other pixels. Sorry, Eve, it’s not you, it’s me.
Fourth is income streams! I was learning a lot right before I left, and I need to pick up those pieces. It is looking to be an interesting summer, and I hope to share it with you all again!
Fly safe, or at least fly fun!
