LJ to the rescue

Hah!

So, I am filling out my paperwork to apply for citizenship and I was trying to brainstorm with Mum about various dates I had left and returned to the country over the past five years. We were stuck on a few when I had a revelation: LIVEJOURNAL!

Sure enough, A quick flick back through my memories and I was able to come up with the all of the exact dates I was missing.

If ever there was an encouragement to keep up with this thing; there you go.

Oh, other big news? I did it. World of Warcraft has been uninstalled from my computer. I'm very proud of myself.

I have a little goal of revamping this journal and keeping up with it again but life's a bit busy right now as I am back and forth between my home and my apartment.

Life's changing for me in great big scary ways, but hopefully I'm starting to move in the right direction.

Re: I have to be honest with you.
Daww, don't ever, ever be scared of me. Please! I don't bite ^__^

Honestly, I didn't think I could do it (I still sometimes still think I can't, I've entertained the idea of reloading the game a couple times now)

I was a GOOD decision though and I'm really glad and proud of myself.

You can do this too!

The trick, for me, was to work myself up to it; I wrote down a list of all the things I needed to do and circled all of the things that were beneficial by me spending my evenings online and you know what? Not ONE of them coincided with the game.

So once I had worked up the courage the trick was to just do it.
NOT log in and give away all my gold; Bei still has 2500+gold on her, half way to my flying mount
I logged on and didn't even tell anyone directly because that would just pull me into conversations with them which would make me stay.
I wrote a letter which I copy and pasted and mailed out to everyone who wasn't in my guild with all of my contact info (AIM, MSN Messenger and e-mail) asking them to keep in touch and then I just signed off without any fuss and uninstalled.

I then went to the guild website and made a more detailed post explaining a little bit of the why and again posted my contact info.

I've found that everyone who I dearly loved in game love me back enough to stay in contact with me which is really the only reason why I was signing on anyways.

It was a good and easy process and although when I'm not keeping myself occupied I relapse into the "oh man I should be farming gold" mode, it's very easy to manage.

If I can do it, you can do it *hugs* be strong, beautiful. Don't let this game control your life.
