A Rough Month

I’ve had a rough month in my real life between losing two pets, difficult college classes and making difficult decisions about the future of my education, and other personal issues. As a result, I haven’t written or posted nearly as much as I had wanted to. I have several posts planned and I’m excited for each one. I just need to find the time–or more accurately, the energy–to sit down, work on the research, and write them.

Thankfully, I’ve still been able to get on Wizard101 and some Pirate101 too and escape into the Spiral for a few hours. It’s a wonderful escape that allows me to forget my worries temporarily and relax and have fun–all things I’m having a hard time doing right now. I recently read a post from Edward Lifegem about anxiety and how Wizard101 and Pirate101 both helped him be able to work around his anxiety. Right now, I feel like I’m in a similar situation. I can’t concentrate on homework, I can’t focus at school, I’d rather be home than out and about (especially rather than being at school)–I’m just generally anxious, stressed, and exhausted. Lately, the only things I’ve been able to get truly excited about without any anxiety, fears, or worries attached to it are Wizard101 related stuff. :/

Once I get my feet back on the ground in my real life, I plan on being a more active blogger again. I have several posts and projects I want to work on for this blog…when I have the energy it takes to produce…

Duelist101 Community Edition

A couple  weeks ago I created a second version of Spiral: A to Z on Duelist101 Community. I’m guaranteed at least a few viewers who aren’t just my friends over there. I’ve even had a post with a comment ^_^ (lol). Anyway, for the most part, both blogs have the same posts. I have a few unique posts here (Finding Housing Items Made Easy will likely stay unique to this version) and have a few unique posts there (for example I wrote a post about my character’s names in response to another Community blogger’s post about her name). You’re welcome to check out Spiral: A to Z Duelist Edition here.
