I have a confession to make; I play Farmville and Cityville. These are games that I play when I go check my Facebook page. The problem is, I play three or four times a day for at least hour each occasion, sometimes longer depending on what I stand to gain by gathering more items from friends and family. It’s become an addiction and I no longer relish the fun of just playing when I have a bit of down time.
So decision time has come; a New Year will arrive in 4 days and it is time to let the games go. This year I want to have more time creating, making collage art and putting a larger emphasis into my Trinkets site. During down time, I want to converse with my husband and go to visit family. I never dreamed it would be this difficult to drop the games, but on the other hand, I never dreamed I would donate this much of my time to a game of building a farm or a city.
I’m glad I made this pronouncement. I’m happy to be moving beyond the games and moving more toward my life goals to take pleasure in arts, crafts, and workshops. Maybe this year I will get back to doing vendor shows where I can enjoy the social atmosphere of being around other crafters/artists and the sharing of ideas.
Here’s to a New Year, New Fun, and New Ideas without being stuck in gameville.
